LAKE LOUISE, Alberta— Two days ago, Austrian racer Nicole Schmidhofer had no World Cup wins.
Now, she can’t lose.
Schmidhofer captured a second straight downhill Saturday with an even faster run. She finished in 1 minute, 47.68 seconds to hold off teammate Cornelia Huetter by 0.44 seconds.
Michelle Gisin of Switzerland was third, 0.47 seconds back, while two-time overall World Cup winner Mikaela Shiffrin wound up fourth.
“It’s unbelievable for me,” the 29-year-old Schmidhofer said.
