Slovenia’s Ilka Stuhec Clinches First World Cup Victories Since Injury

Shiffrin and Vonn set to return to racing in coming weeks.

Too little snow caused FIS World Cup race officials to cancel the women’s third World Cup downhill and Super G events slated to take place on December 14 in Val d’Isere, France, and move both to three days later in Val Gardena, Italy—traditionally a men’s course on the World Cup circuit. For the racers who spend a lot of time preparing mentally and visualizing a certain course, the new venue and delayed start may have caused some added nerves and pressure.

That was apparently not the case for Slovenia’s Ilka Stuhec. In Monday’s downhill race Stuhec took the new course in stride and skied to her first World Cup victory since a knee injury sustained in the fall of 2017 caused her to miss the entire last World Cup season. Then, the very next day, she also won the Val Gardena Super G.
