With the official closure of the World Cup, Italy can be proud of the first Italian women's Overall in the history conquered by Federica Brignone who joined the Italian-Overall club composed by Piero Gros, Gustav Thoeni and Alberto Tomba on the men's field. The Italian ski star, over the year, has scored eleven podiums of which five victories: Courchevel and Sestriere Giant Slalom race, Crans Montana and Altenmarkt Alpine Combined and the super g in Sochi with an achieved record number of points of 1378. She topped the overall rankings, followed by Shiffrin (1,225) and Petra Vlhova (1,189).
These brilliant results have allowed her to conquer not only Overall but also the Giant Slalom and the Alpine Combined globes thanks to her consistency throughout the season.
The other protagonists of the season are certainly this year speed queen Corinne Suter, who conquered both Super G and Downhill globes for the first time in Switzerland since 1988 with Michela Figini, and the slalom specialist Petra Vlhova.
The Slovakian skier makes the history of her country by conquering two globes, Parallel and Slalom. Vlhová finished on the podium in 13 of the last 15 World Cup slalom events, and she won the previous 3 World Cup slalom races already becoming the most successful Slovakian slalom skier of all time.
She also won the first of the two Parallel races and with two competitions played she put under her belt the first-ever Parallel Globe.
One cannot fail to mention the absence of Mikaela Shiffrin, 3-time Overall winner, in the last six weeks since the sudden death of her father last month. She was due to return in Are and came back to fight for the standings before the interruption of the competitions.
