LAKE LOUISE – Switzerland’s Corinne Suter won the final day of World Cup racing at Lake Louise, while Canada’s Marie-Michèle Gagnon found her groove for her first top 10 finish of the season.

On a freezing Sunday (December 4), the Swiss skier won the super-G after taking silver and bronze medals in the downhill races.

« I was dreaming of Lake Louise because I love being here so much, but I’ve never been first, so I’m super happy with my run today, » said Suter, the 2022 Olympic gold medalist in descent. “It was a good race. A couple of mistakes, but I think when you’re fast it happens.

Suter crossed the finish line in 1:20.75, while Austria’s Cornelia Huetter was second (1:20.77) and Norway’s Ragnhild Mowinckel third (1:20.91).

Italian Sofia Goggia, who won both downhill races at Lake Louise and was looking for the gold medal sweep, was fifth Sunday in 1:21.11. She didn’t find her groove on the course until it was too late in the super-G, but she’s otherwise happy with her weekend.

“I’m super grateful. Two wins and a fifth place, still in the top five, so I’m happy with that and let’s bring it home,” said Goggia.

Canada’s Gagnon finished eighth in the super-G, her best finish after finishing 24th and 25th in the downhill.

The three-time Olympian said it felt good to be together.

“It’s really like a small win today,” Gagnon said, “because I was able to have a pretty tough weekend, the first few days on the ice, and just my confidence took a hit.

« Just being in the state I was in, if I had come in today with some confidence I think I would be dangerous for a podium, but that’s really good. »
