Kiwi Alpine ski racer Alice Robinson (Queenstown) has finished in 10th place in the Super G World Cup held in Italy overnight, achieving her career best result in this discipline.   

  

“Top 10 is really great; Super G - I have really been trying hard to get in there this season. To finish it off with a top 10 is great, especially from my bib number 41. It’s a great position for me to be in for next season so I am really, really happy”.   

  

Robinson finished in a time of 1:16:15 and was just +1.54 seconds behind the winner.  

  

Federica Brignone (ITA) took her fourth Super G World Cup win of her career, with 16-time Super G World Cup gold medallist Lara Gut-Behrami (SUI) +0.59 behind her claiming the silver medal. Corinna Suter (SUI) rounded out the podium in third.  

  

Robinson has been competing in Super G World Cups this season in Europe and working hard to get a great result like this in the speed discipline. A great result like she has achieved today will result in a better bib number at Super G World Cups going forwards in the future. 

 

Val di Fassa marked the final Super G World Cup of the 2021 season.
