Small crystal ball for Ilka and Stöckli
Ilka Stuhec displayed her super condition for almost the last time this season. The Slovenian won her 4th downhill race and earned herself the small crystal ball in downhill racing. Together with the World Champion title in downhill racing and the second small crystal ball in the super combined this is an absolute triumph. Congratulations, Ilka!
The alpine World Cup season is now slowly coming to an end in Aspen where the athletes are fighting for the last World Cup points. For Stöckli's athlete, Ilka Stuhec, this event was a shining start. As in the 4th and 8th downhill races, the 26-year-old athlete clearly dominated the race, managing to leave her competitors behind.
Having earned 597 World Cup points in the downhill, Ilka Stuhec definitely deserves the second small crystal ball with her top lead (137 points). Her chances to win the 3rd crystal ball continue today as she competes in the super G.
