January 21, 2017: it’s a historic day for skiing starring the Italian Dominik Paris and the American Lindsey Vonn
Great performance by Dominik Paris, who triumphs on the Streif in Kitzbühel. After the success of last year of Peter Fill, Paris is to pull off the big shot in the most famous downhill in the world. Paris, the policeman of the Val d’Ultimo, has attacked the very difficult path from the first to the last door, without giving anything above their opponents, repeating the success achieved in 2013.
Paris with a time of 1:55:01 preceded the French Valentin Giraud Moine, according to +0.21 and the other transalpine Johan Clarey at +0.33. At the foot of the podium the other blue Peter Fill at +0.40.
There are four Italian triumphs on the Streif: in addition to two goals from Paris and the title of Peter Fill, you have to remember the success of Kristian Ghedina in 1998.
In Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Lindsey Vonn won in 1:43:41 in front of the Swiss Lara Gut in 1:43:56 and the German Viktoria Rebensburg in 1.43.89, going down on another historic track like Kandahar, filled with fast curves and centrifuges. For Lindsey Vonn was a great recovery after that, a year ago, she had the knee injury in Soldeu and in November the humerus broken left arm now held together by a titanium plate.
