What did the World Cup athletes vote as their favorite Run of the Year? Find it out tomorrow....
The Run of the Year seems to be a very close call between Lindsey Vonn and Carlo Janka. In fact, it is a neck-and-neck race as both skiers got 25 % of your votes up to this point. The next question is being published tomorrow, so you can still change the outcome of this one!
On Wednesday, you will get the answer to question #1. Check out what the World Cup athletes thought at the 2010 FIS Ski World Cup Finals in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and don't forget to check out the new question tomorrow.
So here again the candidates for Run of the Year:
1. Anne Sophie Barthet (FRA), Aspen SL: the young French came back following injury in the 08/09 season and delivered a stunning slalom race at Aspen by finishing 6th with Bib# 58.
2. Andrew Weibrecht (USA), Whistler SG: a season highlighted by an 11th place finish at the notorious Kitzbuehel super G in Austria - only his second time racing down the treacherous Streif piste - and a 13th in the famed Lauberhorn downhill in Wengen, Switzerland. The "War Horse" also got a bronze medal in the Olympic super G in Whistler, Canada, as a member of the 2010 U.S. Olympic Team Member in only his third season traveling full time with winter's White Circus.
3. Viktoria Rebensburg (GER), Whistler GS: the 20-year-old Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany takes surprise gold for Germany in the Olympic giant slalom starting sixth into the second run.
4. Julien Lizeroux (FRA), Adelboden SL 2nd run: The 30-year-old Frenchman surged to victory with a blazing second run racing through from 12th place after the first leg in the World Cup slalom race on the Kuonisbaergli course in Adelboden, Switzerland.
5. Carlo Janka (SUI), Wengen DH / Beaver Creek 3x: The 23-year-old Swiss confirmed his growing status as the new star of ski-obsessed Switzerland by winning its signature World Cup downhill race. It was Janka's fourth victory of the season, following his sweep of all three races, including a downhill, at Beaver Creek, Colorado (USA) a month earlier.
6. Felix Neureuther (GER), Kitzbühel SL: The 25-year-old claimed his first career World Cup win putting his name alongside that of his dad, Christian, who has won six World Cup slaloms, the last coming at Kitzbuehel in 1979.
7. Federica Brignone (ITA), Aspen GS (Bib 34 to 3): the 19-year-old daughter of famed former Italian tech specialist Maria Rosa Quario, who won four World Cup slaloms from 1979-83, finished third with bib 34 for her first ever World Cup podium.
8. Lindsey Vonn (USA), Haus im Ennstal 3x: Following back-to-back downhill wins, the American blitzed her rivals after taking victory also in the World Cup super-G to secure a hat-trick of wins in the Austrian resort of Haus Im Ennstal.
