Gut-Behrami replaces Shiffrin as leader of the World Cup

There was immense satisfaction for the athletes, teams and organising committee of the Soldeu 2024 World Cup this last weekend. Following the success of last year’s World Cup Finals, the ski circuit returned to Andorra.

In hosting the event, the organisation was highly focused on offering the best possible experience not just to the sportswomen and the accompanying members of their teams, but also to the spectators in attendance. “The weather didn’t make it at all easy. We hosted the races with the Avet course in great condition. It should be highlighted that if this was made possible thanks to the passion and the considerable work capacity that the technical teams displayed,” said David Hidalgo, Managing Director of the event.

On Saturday, Lara Gut-Behrami reasserted her lead in the Giant Slalom discipline with a thrilling victory that meant she replaced Mikaela Shiffrin (absent due to injury) as leader in the overall rankings. Alice Robinson and AJ made it onto the GS podium behind her.

On Sunday, the competition venue provided a spectacular Slalom race in which Anna Swenn Larsson was fastest, followed by Zrinka Ljutic and Paula Moltzan. The World Cup show had more to offer than just sporting entertainment. The organisation set up a World Cup Village over the weekend with recreational activities for all ages, an exhibition with major brands from the world of skiing, entertainment, dancing, live music and gastronomy. The Instagram account @soldeueltarterworldcup became the channel with the most interaction for racers and ski fans, providing images of the event that will be go down in the history books.
