    Alpine Ski Racer, Alice Robinson Disqualified in World Cup Super G

    New Zealand alpine ski racer Alice Robinson missed the final gate in her FIS World Cup Super G race in St Anton, Austria overnight and was disqualified.

    It was only the third appearance is a World Cup Super G for the 19-year-old as she was looking to emulate fellow New Zealander Zoi Sadowski-Synnott, who claimed victory in the opening FIS Snowboard Big Air World Cup event on Sunday (NZ Time).

    Wearing bib number 41, Robinson was one of four racers disqualified in the 52-strong field.

    It has been a tough season so far for Robinson, her best placing coming in October when she claimed 12th at the Sölden World Cup Giant Slalom.

    Robinson now moves her attention to the more technical Giant Slalom, in which she’s found success with three World Cup Podiums, including two victories, in the last two years.

    One of her victories came at Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, due to be held on January 16.

    In October 2020 she was named New Zealand’s snow sports athlete of the year, after her victories last season.

    She was New Zealand’s only Alpine World Cup gold medallist since 1997
