Federica Brignone wins World Cup super-G; Shiffrin sits out

ST. ANTON, Austria (AP) — Federica Brignone won a World Cup super-G at St. Anton, Austria, for the 2020 overall champion’s first victory this season. Mikaela Shiffrin skipped the race to rest while she has a dominating lead in the overall standings. Brignone mastered a course shortened because of heavy overnight snowfall to finish 0.54 ahead of Joana Hählen. Olympic champion Lara Gut-Behrami was third, trailing 0.66 behind Brignone. Sofia Goggia, the downhill standings leader, crashed out. Olympic bronze medalist Michelle Gisin also failed to finish her run. Another super-G is scheduled Sunday on the Karl Schranz course.
