After several disappointments at the Alpine Ski World Championships in Meribel, France, Alexander Schmid won the first medal for the German team.

In the parallel competition, the 28-year-old won the title in the final against the Austrian Dominik Raschner.

It was the first German World Cup victory in ten years: Maria Höfl-Riesch triumphed in the combination in 2013.

On the way to the final after Filippo della Vite (Italy) and Zan Kranjec (Slovenia) Schmid also knocked out Norwegian Timon Haugan in the semifinals.

At the 2021 World Cup he had to settle for fourth place.

In the women's category, Norway's Marie Therese Tviberg became world champion by beating Wendy Holdener from Switzerland in the final.

Third place went to Thea Louise Stjernesund (Norway).

For Lena Dürr it was over in the quarterfinals against Tviberg, Linus Straßer failed in the first round.

Dürr can now concentrate primarily on the slalom on Saturday, in which the 31-year-old is one of the medal candidates.
