Huetter clinches first World Cup downhill title and prevents Gut-Behrami from capturing fourth win of the season

Cornelia Huetter surprised everyone on the final day of the women’s World Cup season in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria by winning the downhill race to secure her first-ever title. This victory also prevented Lara Gut-Behrami from winning her fourth title of the week. Huetter started the race in fourth place in the discipline standings behind teammates Stephanie Venier and Sofia Goggia, as well as Gut-Behrami, who needed to finish ninth or higher to maintain her lead.

Huetter took the lead after starting 12th, putting the pressure on Gut-Behrami to perform. Gut-Behrami, who had already won the overall, giant slalom, and super-G titles at the World Cup finals, was expected to win her fourth title of the week. However, she finished in 11th place, allowing Huetter to claim the victory.

Huetter had to wait nervously as Ilka Stuhec and Nicol Delago made their runs, coming extremely close to beating her time. Stuhec finished just 0.17 seconds behind Huetter, while Delago was 0.49 seconds behind. Gut-Behrami ended up in 17th place, falling 28 points behind Huetter in the final standings.

Huetter was surrounded by her teammates in celebration as she secured her first title in a thrilling final race of the World Cup season. The intense competition and surprising outcome made for an exciting conclusion to the women’s World Cup season in Austria.
