Sterz fastest in women’s Worlds downhill training

SCHLADMING, Austria – Regina Sterz of Austria posted the fastest time in the first women’s downhill training at the World Championships on Wednesday.

Sterz timed 1 minute, 53.44 seconds on the 3.05-kilometer Streicher course to lead Lotte Smiseth Sejersted of Norway by 0.46 seconds. Sterz finished a career-best fifth in a World Cup downhill in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, last month.

Fraenzi Aufdenblatten of Switzerland came 0.51 behind the Austrian in third. Slovenia’s Tina Maze, who won the super-G title Tuesday, was another 0.03 behind in fourth.

Defending champion Elisabeth Goergl of Austria placed fifth, 0.62 behind.

The downhill Sunday will take place without five-time World Cup discipline champion Lindsey Vonn, who is out for the season after injuring her knee in a crash Tuesday.
