Queenstown skier Alice Robinson finished in 10th place in the Super G World Cup held in Val di Fassa, Italy yesterday, achieving her career-best result in the discipline.
"Top 10 is really great," the 19-year-old said in a statement.
"Super G — I have really been trying hard to get in there this season."
"To finish it off with a top 10 is great, especially from my bib number 41.
"It’s a great position for me to be in for next season so I am really, really happy."
Robinson finished in a time of 1min 16.15 sec and was 1.54sec behind the winner, Federica Brignone, of Italy.
It was the fourth Super G World Cup win of Brignone’s career.
Sixteen-time Super G World Cup gold medallist Lara Gut-Behrami, of Switzerland, was 0.59sec behind her, claiming the silver medal.
Corinna Suter, also of Switzerland, was third.
Robinson has been competing in Super G World Cups this season in Europe and working hard in the speed discipline.
Such results will lead to better bib numbers at future Super G World Cups.
It was the final Super G World Cup of the 2021 season.
Robinson’s specialty event is the giant slalom.
