Due to poor visibility at the top, the start of the men’s alpine combined downhill had to be delayed and moved down. The race then started at 12.00 just as the sun came out and the Run 1 results feature an Italian, an American and a Norwegian in the top three.

The weather is always a factor in outdoor sports, and the men’s alpine combined downhill on Monday was affected by both snowfall and heavy winds. The start was moved down to the super-G reserve start and delayed for one hour. By lunchtime, the sun came out and the snowfall stopped, and so the race was on. 

Once again, it was a tight speed race. Italian Dominik Paris enjoyed the sunny conditions and took the lead, only three hundredths of a second ahead of American athlete Ryan Cochran-Siegle, and 38 hundredths of a second ahead of Aleksander Aamodt Kilde of Norway.

Italian Christof Innerhofer and Austrian Vincent Kriechmayr are just 44 hundredths of a second behind, tying for the fourth place. Kriechmayr already claimed silver in the super-G and bronze in the downhill, clearly enjoying the hill here in Åre. Luca Aerni, the defending world champion from St Moritz 2017, wearing bib number 20 is in 20th place, 1.23 seconds behind Paris. 

”I am very happy with my run. The view was a bit limited at the top but the bottom part was perfect.  I feel confident for the slalom tonight as I didn’t lose too much time in the downhill,”said Aerni.

Victor Muffat-Jeandet of France, who claimed bronze at the 2018 Games, had bib number ten and is 1.49 seconds behind after the downhill run.  

It was a good and safe downhill, even without much training. I had an okay run. Especially the last jump before the finish line was quite difficult,” said Muffat-Jeandet.

Swedish Alexander Köll, wearing bib number 35, had a great run and finished in 10thposition, only 74 hundredths of a second behind Paris. Fellow Swede Felix Monsén, whose brother Zack also entered the race (finishing in 45th place) finished in 21st place. 

The men’s alpine combined slalom starts at 16.00 CET.

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46Pressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
