Davos World Cup Wrap-Up & Images

The Davos World Cup finished up today with some solid results from Australia’s sprinters. Phillip Bellingham was 68th in the men’s sprint with 71.6 FIS points, just 3.1 seconds outside of qualifying for finals in the top 30, while Esther Bottomley was 63rd with 72.1 FIS points (her best ever on World Cup), 7.1 seconds outside the top 30. Callum Watson and Paul Kovacs were 91st and 94th in the men’s time trial, while Aimee Watson was 74th in the women’s time trial. These latter three skiers were backing up after tough distance World Cup events the previous day. Aimee was 59th in the 15km Freestyle with 133.7 FIS points, or 16.7% back for the old school analysts. Callum and PK were 63rd and 68th in the 30km Freestyle, with FIS points of 95.51 and 150.97 (11.9% and 18.8%).

From here the three men travel to Val di Fiemme in Italy with World Cup Coach August Teague to join the rest of the Australian Team at the Winter Universiade. Aimee heads to Gressoney in Italy for an OPA Cup, and Esther remains in Davos for a training block. See below for some images from the races.
