+++ December 28th, 2020: Weather swirls alpine day – knee problems stop Schmotz +++
Capricious weather conditions paralyzed large parts of the Alpine ski Monday. While the men’s Super G race in Bormio, Italy, was postponed by 24 hours to Tuesday (11.30 a.m.) due to heavy snowfall, the first round of the women’s giant slalom in Semmering, Austria, was still going on. The second run at noon was postponed twice due to strong gusts of wind and ultimately canceled. The race is to be rescheduled later in the season.
For the German Ski Association (DSV) it was already over after the first round. Andrea Filser clearly missed the final in 46th place, Marlene Schmotz did not even start because of knee problems. At the start in Sölden and at the two races in Courchevel, none of the German giant slalom starters made it into the top 30.
“It’s a shame because she trains really well,” said women’s national coach Jürgen Graller of the German press agency about Filser, who was 4.34 seconds behind leading world champion Petra Vlhova from Slovakia in the first run in Semmering. “In the race she has some kind of blockage and seems very cramped. She doesn’t even come close to her good rides in training.”
With Schmotz it is “probably nothing dramatic, rather a precautionary measure,” said Graller. After she had trained well beforehand, the 26-year-old got “a strange feeling” on Sunday evening, he reported. “After her cruciate ligament rupture last winter, she needs complete confidence in her body. Everything else doesn’t make sense.” She also skipped the slalom planned for Tuesday (3:15 p.m.). “Then we’ll see.”
The wind will probably decrease a bit overnight, said the race director of the World Ski Federation FIS, Peter Gerdol, with a view to the further program. But it will probably take the whole Tuesday morning to prepare the target area in which the barriers and advertising boards were blown down.
