Skiing: Ilka Štuhec Second to Siebenhofer in Cortina

STA, 18 January 2019 – Slovenian skier Ilka Štuhec finished second in Friday’s downhill in Cortina d’Ampezzo, her third podium in three World Cup appearances this season.

Štuhec was 0.40 seconds behind the Austrian Ramona Siebenhofer, with another Austrian, Stephanie Venier rounding off the podium 0.46 seconds adrift.

The reigning downhill world champion, Štuhec made a stunning return to the World Cup after a long injury by winning the downhill and super-G in mid-December.

The 28-year-old now ranks second in the World Cup downhill standings, 68 points behind Siebenhofer. The next World Cup downhill will be held on Saturday, followed by a super-G on Sunday.
