Fourth World Cup win for Nici Schmidhofer
With her victory in the second Downhill in Lake Louise and a second place in the Super G in Garmisch Partenkirchen, former world champion Nicole Schmidhofer produced some outstanding World Cup results this season, too. The 31-year-old from Styria ended the Super G World Cup in third place.
Katharina Truppe is another who can look back on the season with satisfaction. The first-ever World Cup podium she had wanted so badly finally arrived for the 24-year-old Carinthian when she finished third in the Slalom in Levi. Her class was confirmed three months later in mid-February when she repeated the feat, finishing third in the Slalom in Kranjska Gora.
