Val Gardena/Gröden congratulates the Speed World Champions


The Saslong Classic Club is thrilled with the freshly crowned world champions in the fast disciplines. Dominik Paris won the Super-G in Are, Sweden, and Kjetil Jansrud the downhill - both have also had great successes in Val Gardena/Gröden.


The South Tyrolean Dominik Paris was one of the big favorites in the Super-G. This was after he did not finish in this discipline on the Saslong a few weeks ago after a good intermediate time. In 2014, Paris had finished second in the Super-G, beaten by Kjetil Jansrud.

The Norwegian Jansrud already has been on the podium in Val Gardena/Gröden eight times and he triumphed in the downhill world championship from Are with a slight advantage to his compatriot Aksel Lund Svindal. The latter had already announced the end of his career leaving behind a great legacy in Val Gardena/Gröden: he won seven races (5 Super-G, 2 downhills) on the Saslong, more than any other.

Ilka Štuhec (Slovenia), two-time winner of the Val Gardena/Gröden downhill competition, is the new downhill world champion. Nicol Delago from Val Gardena/Gröden finished sixth. In the Super-G, Mikaela Shiffrin from the USA triumphed.
