Slovenia’s Stuhec sweeps World Cup speed races in Val Gardena

Overcomes mistake to narrowly win super-G after Tuesday’s downhill victory.

Slovenian skier Ilka Stuhec overcame an error in the middle of her run to win a World Cup super-G on Wednesday and sweep the speed races on the Saslong course in Val Gardena, Italy.

Following her downhill victory from Tuesday, Stuhec finished a slim 0.05 seconds ahead of Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein and Nicole Schmidhofer of Austria, who tied for second.

Stuhec’s run was far from perfect. She lost her balance for an instant near the start then ventured way out wide midway down, hitting a gate as she slammed on the brakes to make it back into the course.
