Gut underlines Olympic super-G ambitions

CORTINA D'AMPEZZO - Swiss Lara Gut underlined her Olympic super-G title ambitions by claiming her third World Cup win of the season in the discipline at Cortina d'Ampezzo on Sunday. The 22-year-old, a super-G winner at Beaver Creek and Lake Louise in December, put behind her a series of disappointing results lately to clock a winning time of 1min 27.81sec on the Olympia delle Tofane course. "It is a good feeling to win today," said Gut, who disappointed with a 19th place in Thursday's super-G before bouncing back with a fourth place and then 10th place in two consecutive downhills Friday and Saturday. "I started the season so strong with four podiums in the early races, but then the tour came back to Europe and I never got to see the podium again."–AFP
