Cortina d’Ampezzo – The young South Tyrolean Nadia Delago can be happy. She will make her World Cup debut tomorrow, Saturday. Since her sister Nicol and season dominator Sofia Goggia are absent due to an injury and Federica Brignone is concentrating on the combination on Monday, the 23-year-old moved into the squad. Even Marta Bassino, the current giant slalom queen by trade, does not start in the downhill.
So Laura Pirovano, Francesca Marsaglia, Elena Curtoni and Delago will drive. The internal team qualification, to which the Ladin woman may have already adjusted, falls into the water. Speaking of which: You can be sure that Nadia and her sister Nicol have the best fan in the world, because not only insiders have noticed that the two sisters not only have the same passion, but also have one heart and one soul off the slopes . In addition, the younger Delago lady’s quite satisfactory season results are an indication that the World Cup nomination can also be seen as a reward.
