ROME – Dominik Paris is the king of Bormio : he wins the second downhill run in two days and heads the Ski World Cup. It has not happened since Alberto Tomba that an Italian aimed at the general classification (the one that adds up the points won in all specialties). Paris in Bormio gave the brace just 24 hours after yesterday's success in the race that recovered the descent canceled last week in Val Gardena. By virtue of today's success, the Italian downhill skier also jumped to the command of the general World Cup.
Paris, 30 years old, has confirmed once again that the Alta Valtellina route, moreover, indicated to host the men's trials of the Milan-Cortina 2026 Olympics (could they be moved to Cortina at the last?), Is to his liking. Indeed, Dominik is exalted as never by brushing curves and curves, remaining compact on jumps and compressions often fatal to downhill skiers. The original blue of the Val d'Ultimo was perfect both on the Carcentina, the most difficult point of the Bormio slope, but also on the San Pietro wall.
For 'Domme', as he is called within the team, today's was the number 18 career victory in a round of the White Circus, the 17th downhill and the sixth on the 'Stelvio' (5 well downhill). A few seconds of apprehension when the Swiss Carneade Urs Kryenbuehl came down and, taking advantage of the sun to heat the snow and therefore speed up the track, cut the photocells just 8 seconds from the Italian. To complete the podium another Swiss, the well-known Beat Feuz (at 26 cents). In short, after 29 December 2012 downhill, Paris' first success in the Cup, here is that of 28 December 2017 always downhill, then the brace of 2018 (28 downhill and 29 in supergiant) and now the brace 2019.
Sunday 29 December Paris will be at the starting gate of the combined to continue the dream towards the conquest of the large crystal ball, a trophy that Italy has been missing since 1995 (Alberto Tomba). (Source Agi).
