Cologne (SID) – Laura Nolte for the third time in a World Cup missed Germany’s first monopop win at the start of the Olympic season. Winterberger in the youth field, where Olympic medals will be awarded for the first time at the Winter Games in Beijing (February 4 to 20, 2022), in Innsbruck, fell at the top, to third place.
The first German victory in the so-called world championship is still to come for a long time. After two races on Saturday, the former two-man world champion, Ilana Myers-Taylor, beat fellow American and world champion Kylie Humphreys (+0.13sec) to win.
After the first round, Myers-Taylor was on top at the same time as 22-year-old Nolte. Nolte’s deficit was eventually 14 percent.
Pyeongchang Olympic champion Mariama Jamanka (Oberhof), like Wiesbaden’s Kim Kaleki, did not find her way around Austria very well. Only Jamanka fell in 11th place (+0.95), and Kalicki also missed the top 10 in 12th place (+1.02).
The year before, German female pilots booked only three second and third places in the first season of the Mono World Series, which is not part of the World Cup. At the World Championships in Altenburg, Nolte also won the bronze behind teammate Stephanie Schneider, who did not make the jump to the World Cup team this season.
