Bad weather forces cancellation of St. Moritz women's super G

Bad weather forces cancellation of St. Moritz women’s super G{mosimage}Fog and high winds forced World Cup organizers to call off the women’s super G race scheduled in St. Moritz on Sunday.

The race, the last women’s event before Christmas, had already been moved to St. Moritz from another Swiss resort, Laax, because of a lack of snow in the original venue.

“The race was cancelled due to high wind and fog in the middle part of the slope,” said organizing committee media officer Claudio Duschletta. “We made an early decision to allow people to leave for Christmas because they have been on the road a long time and there is no sense in keeping people around.”

Organizers said there was no immediate decision on when and where the race would be rescheduled.

Austrian Renate Goetschl, who won the downhill here on Saturday, had been hoping to extend her lead in the super G World Cup standings with another good result.

The next women’s World Cup event will now be a giant slalom in Lienz, Austria, next Saturday.
