Putzer ends 4 year wait

Date Posted: 26th Jan 2007
Category:  European Events
People enjoying a Cortina ski holiday at the weekend saw local favourite, Karen Putzer, end a four-year wait for a World Cup win.

The Italian triumphed in the Cortina giant slalom, her first World Cup victory since March 2003 and the eighth of her career.

Putzer, who has had to battle back from surgery last year, clocked a time of two minutes 46.93 seconds, 0.41 seconds better than runner-up Julia Mancuso from the US.

"I had been struggling for years because I didn't want to have the operation," she explained.

Fellow Italian, Denise Karbon, also made it onto the podium in third place.

Anyone on a ski holiday in Cortina who wanted to see how Britain's number one skier Chemmy Alcott fared would not have been disappointed.

The Brit, who excelled at the Winter Olympics last year when finishing 11th, has not enjoyed a good season, but she managed an improved performance to finish 28th.
