Kiwi Alpine ski racer Alice Robinson (Queenstown) has finished in 10th place in the Super G World Cup held in Italy overnight, achieving her career best result in this discipline.
“Top 10 is really great; Super G - I have really been trying hard to get in there this season. To finish it off with a top 10 is great, especially from my bib number 41. It’s a great position for me to be in for next season so I am really, really happy”.
Robinson finished in a time of 1:16:15 and was just +1.54 seconds behind the winner.
Federica Brignone (ITA) took her fourth Super G World Cup win of her career, with 16 time Super G World Cup gold medallist Lara Gut-Behrami (SUI) +0.59 behind her. Corinna Suter (SUI) rounded out the podium in third.
Robinson has been competing in Super G World Cups this season in Europe and working hard to get a great result like this in the speed discipline. Scoring low FIS points (in Alpine Ski Racing the lower the FIS points the better) means going forwards she will get to start further up the pack with a lower bib number.
Val di Fassa marked the final Super G World Cup of the 2021 season.
