- Dario Caviezel and Julie Zug win the bronze medal in the parallel team event at the World Snowboard Championships in Georgia.
- The second Swiss pair – Gian Casanova and Lidina Geni – fall by the wayside in the round of 16.
- The Swiss Alpine faction left Bakuriani with a total of four World Championship medals.
In the end it was clear: in the small final of the parallel team competition, Lucia Dalmasso made a mistake at the top, which allowed Julie Zug to retire. The 30-year-old from eastern Switzerland tackled the role with confidence and no longer let any tension arise. Safely, Zogg drove the bronze against Italy 1.
In the end, I hugged Dario Caviezel. The 27-year-old lost a good twenty to Maurizio Bormolino, thus giving Zogg a good starting position, which he used optimally.
It is the second medal at the World Championships in Bakuriani for both Zogg and Caviezel. Zug won gold in the parallel slalom on Tuesday, while Caviezel finished second in the parallel giant slalom on Sunday.
He missed entering the final by 0.06 seconds
In the semi-finals, the Austrians Andreas Prumegger / Sabine Schofmann Caviezel / Zug lost. After Caviezel secured a 0.88s Swiss mortgage, Zogg began the big catch-up. She got closer and closer to Schoffmann, but in the end she was 0.06 seconds away from reaching the final. Switzerland 1 qualified for the semi-finals by defeating Slovenia and Germany 1.
Italy 2 took gold with Aaron Marsh and Nadia Ochner, who prevailed in the final against favorite Promegger/Shoffman.
Casanova/Genie fail in the round of 16
With Gian Casanova and Ladina Geni, the Swiss pair were second in the team competition, held for the first time at a World Championship. The two advanced to the round of 16 semifinals. But in the round of 16, the Polish duo were very strong.
The Swiss Alpine delegation leaves Georgia with a total of four medals. In addition to the team medal and the two individual medals from Zogg and Caviezel, Jenny took silver in the parallel slalom.
