Something to forget about Beijing a little.
Frenchwoman Tessa Worley won her second small giant slalom globe at 32 at home after her fourth place in the giant of the Alpine Skiing World Cup finals won by Italian Federica Brignone on Sunday in Méribel.
The double giant world champion (2013 and 2017) won a second time in the general classification of the specialty after 2017. She who had fallen in the second run of the giant slalom of the Olympic Games in Beijing did not tremble this Sunday , confirming his excellent form at the end of the season.
Emotion among the Blues
This little globe was welcomed by tears in the French clan, that of his companion, the ex-slalomer Julien Lizeroux, but also of his teammate Clara Diez.
Olympic champion Sara Hector, leader for five points before this final stage, only ranked fourteenth at 1 sec 49/100.
A crippling place for the Swede leaving the track at home in Are during the previous giant.
As for Mikaela Shiffrin, leader after the first heat with 82/100ths of a second ahead of her first pursuer Brignone, she collapsed, finishing only seventh at 67/100ths from the Italian.
The American, who also missed out on her Games, had however already won the big crystal globe on Thursday rewarding the winner of the general classification of the World Cup.
