The Men's World Cup returns to the Tofane with two super-Gs

Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 January


Cortina d’Ampezzo (Belluno), 24 January 2023 – After three exciting Women’s World Cup days, that saw Italy’s Sofia Goggia and Slovenia’s Ilka Stuhec triumph in the two downhill races, and Norway’s Ragnhild Mowinckel win the SuperG, it is now the men’s turn on the Olympia della Tofane. In fact, next weekend will see the Men’s Ski World Cup return to Cortina d’Ampezzo, with two super-G recovery races, Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 January. These are recoveries of races originally scheduled in Val Gardena and Lake Louise.

Fondazione Cortina, the organiser of Cortina Ski World Cup and many other events in the Ampezzo valley, has kept the engines running and is busy preparing for next weekend, which will see the return of the Men’s World Cup to the Olympia, 33 years after the last time.

In fact, February 1990 was the year Kristian Ghedina made his debut on the circuit and took his first world cup victory, on home turf. The Ghedo, barely twenty years old, had taken third place in Val Garden and second place in Schladming during the previous weeks. On the Olympia he triumphed ahead of Daniel Mahrer (Switzerland) and Helmut Höflehner (Austria). Ghedina’s first World Cup success was to be followed by another twelve. The next day saw Höflehner win, and joining him on the podium, Switzerland’s Franz Heinzer and Norway’s Atle Skårdal. Per Höflehner, who won the World Cup downhill ten times, took the last victory of his career that year in Cortina. 

This weekend in Cortina, the men will yet again compete on the Olympia, with two superG races scheduled on Saturday 28 January, at 11.10, and on Sunday 29 January, at 10.15. Saturday evening at 18.00, in Cortina’s Piazza Angelo Dibona, there will be a prize giving ceremony of the first super-G and bib draw for Sunday’s race. The entire town is getting ready to welcome the greats of men’s alpine skiing.

«After an intense last weekend, our staff immediately got back to work to prepare for another great ski weekend» comments Stefano Longo, President of Fondazione Cortina.

«It will be great to see the men return to compete on my mountains» adds Kristian Ghedina. «When I won, in February 1990, there was a huge crowd and the town celebrated for hours. It would be nice to see that kind of crowd cheering the champions who will battle it out on the Olympia next weekend. I’ll be in the front row on Saturday to enjoy the show!»
