News: Ted Ligety .01 Seconds From Super G Podium In Lake Louise
By TetonGravityResearch | November 26th, 2012
Lake Louise, AB – Ted Ligety led four U.S. Ski Team athletes into the points Sunday finishing fourth in the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup super G in Lake Louise, missing the podium by a mere .01. Ligety strategically skipped the downhill race and spent the week leading up to Lake Louise training at the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain. The move translated into his best super G finish since taking second three years ago and vaulted him into second in the World Cup overall standings. Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal swept the weekend to move into the World Cup lead. Andrew Weibrecht was 19th, Ryan Cochran-Siegle 20th and Tommy Biesemeyer 29th. Universal Sports will rebroadcast the race at 9 p.m. ET.
"My super G has been going pretty well, but I wasn't expecting much after just flying in and now out," Ted Ligety said. "It sucks to miss the podium by one hundreth, but I'm pretty satisfied."
