Mowinkel with the first Norwegian podium in a cup in 23 years

Mowinkel with the first Norwegian podium in a cup in 23 years
Just about: Ranhild Moenkel in the end zone after the last Super-G game of the season in Soldeu, Andorra.

The ball missed, but Ragnhild Mowinkel (30) took the podium as the first Norwegian woman to take the podium overall with a cup since 1999.


Status updated.

Not since Andren Flemmen finished third in the Giant Slalom Cup in 1999 has a Norwegian woman managed to be in the top three at the World Cup in downhill, super-G, giant slalom, or slalom.

That was before Ragnhild Mowinckel ran it over on Thursday.

Moldensen also had the opportunity to become the first Norwegian woman to reach the top in one of the Overall Cups, but it didn’t go smoothly in the last Super-G race of the season.

Lara Gut-Behrami won the race, and at the same time climbed to the top of the Super-G Cup.

In places behind her, she followed Italy’s Federica Brignoni and Ragnhild Moenkel, and was also in the top three in the Super J Cup.

Italy’s Elena Cortoni topped the summary before Thursday’s race, but with a disappointing 10th place she dropped to fourth in the Super G Cup.
