Tina Weirather’s win on Sunday in Val d’Isère, France was her first in a Giant Slalom in her career on the FIS Alpine World Cup tour. She lead the first run and managed to keep her advance on the second one.
As she has been on other occasions this season, Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein was a skier unto herself, picking up speed at every split and ultimately besting runner up Lara Gut of Switzerland by 0.73 seconds. Maria Pietilae-Holmner of Sweden finally landed a podium this season placing third.
Tina Weirather is the daughter of World Cup racers Harti Weirather and Hanni Wenzel. She has been in the top five in every race she’s finished this season – all but three – and ascended the podium in Giant Slalom, Super G and Downhill. Sunday was her second win of the season and the third of her career.
