Second Crystal globe of the 2023/2024 season for Bonnet, and first one for Emily Harrop 

The second day of competition at the ISMF World Cup Finals in Cortina d’Ampezzo delivered thrilling action as athletes took on the challenging Individual race under perfect conditions. With the sun shining bright and the course offering spectacular views, competitors faced off in a battle on the slopes of Cortina.

Swiss legend Remi Bonnet continued his remarkable run of form, securing his second gold medal of the World Cup Finals after his triumph in the Vertical race yesterday. Displaying his trademark speed and strength, Bonnet blazed through the course, leaving his rivals trailing in his wake. Crossing the finish line almost one minute and a half ahead of his nearest competitor, Italy’s Davide Magnini, Bonnet once again asserted his dominance in the sport of ski mountaineering.

Behind Bonnet, Davide Magnini put in a strong performance to claim the silver medal, while France’s William Bon Mardion rounded out the podium with a solid bronze medal finish.

Bonnet’s victory also secured him his second Crystal Globe of the season, winning the season ranking for Individual races, and reaffirming his status as one of the top athletes in the sport. France’s Xavier Gachet and Belgium’s Maximilien Drion du Chapois secured second and third place, respectively, in the season rankings.

On the women’s side, the race saw a fantastic performance from Axelle Gachet-Mollaret, who showcased her resilience and determination after returning to competition following the birth of her second child. Gachet-Mollaret’s victory in the Individual race was a testament to her incredible form and determination, as she crossed the finish line ahead of her teammate Emily Harrop, who secured victory in the Individual race specialty rankings. Italy’s Alba de Silvestro claimed the bronze medal on the day, securing second place in the rankings. The gold today gave Axelle the third place on the individual rankings.

After the two consecutive gold medals for Bonnet and Gachet-Mollaret, the athletes now have a rest day before the Sprint competition that will take place on Tuesday.
