Olympia delle Tofane - Cortina d'Ampezzo

Elena Fanchini wins the downhill, and Cortina is clothed in blue

Amazing italian victory in the downhill of the Olympia delle Tofane slope


Date: 16/01/2015 from 17.00
Place: Cortina d’Ampezzo

At noon, the anthem of Italy fills the valley and brings joy to the Ampezzo valley while the bells of the church of Saint Filippo and Saint Giacomo ring to celebrate. Elena Fanchini is the winner of the downhill in Cortina d’Ampezzo, three years after Dada Merighetti. It was January 14, 2012 and since that day, before today, no blue-girl was able to get on the top step of the podium in a women’s race of the World Cup. Lucky Cortina? Definitely yes and also known. Because the good Lord so did it: beautiful,  indeed beautiful, and unique in the world. But even good, let’s face it, to beautifully organize ski races of twenty-three years now. Whatever the weather is. And in any winter. This morning, for example, she woke up with low clouds covering completely the Tofane as a gray coat that left only discovered Col Druscè and woods around. In fact, at the finish of Rumerlo also sleet and only timidly, occasionally, some sunshine illuminated Rumerlo and the finish area.

Tenth Vonn. And even thirteenth Maze. But tomorrow is another day and we’ll see. “I hope a lot better than today,” grumbled the beautiful Slovenian, with morale in the heels. Almost unapproachable. The fault of her sensational results, the worst of the season in a speed race, was given to the fog and not for truly to the track “it was beautiful as always.” The American from Vail has instead refused to take risks. Understandable, after two operations on his right knee that in practice kept her away from racing for almost a season and half. “I went to the starting gate already convinced that I could not win today. And in fact, from the top to the end I have accumulated an error of line after another”, she just said taking the escape route from the beautiful scene of the race, where tomorrow at 11.30, snow and rain permitting, it will be a day of revenge, still in downhill, for the two leading ladies of this fascinating World Cup.
