Ligety Dominates at Alta Badia

Ligety Dominates at Alta Badia

Ligety wins by more then 2 seconds for the second time this season in GS.

He did it again. Ted “Shred” Ligety wins the men’s GS at Alta Badia (Dec.16th) by a margin of more then two seconds. This marks the second time this season that Ligety has won the men’s GS by more then two seconds. Ligety is truly in a league of his own.

Taking the top spot on the podium with a time of 2:37.27, Ligety was 2.04 seconds in front of runner up and defending GS champ, Marcel Hirscher. “All we can do at this point is respect what Ted is doing. I am happy with my season so far and my focus will remain skiing,” Hirscher told the FIS. Hirscher’s second place finish marks his sixth podium finish of the season.

Ligety’s first run helped make up for the few mistakes he made on his second run. “I was trying to charge a little bit but I kept making mistakes,” Ligety told the FIS.  “It was a lot rougher sending it but after a little while I decided to get it back a gear so I don’t completely blow the advantage I had. I was still skiing 100%, and decided to go down to 95 just to stay on the safe side. It was a rough ride.”

Next stop for the men will be Slalom, Tuesday, Dec. 18th at Madonna di Campiglio.

Over at the women's GS at Courchevel, Julia Mancuso and Mikaela Shriffrin represented the U.S. well, both finishing in the top ten, Mancuso 6th and Shiffrin 9th. Slovenian, Tina Maze, is proving she is the one to beat on the women's side. Maze dominated the women's GS with a winning time of 2:16.84

Next up for the women will be Are on Wednesday, Dec. 19th, where Maze will get another shot at a GS title.
