Good debut for Francesca Baruzzi at the Winter Olympics

Argentine skier Francesca Baruzzi achieved this Monday a creditable 29th place in the women’s giant slalom classification in her debut at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. The time of both series was enough for him to finish in 29th position in a test in which the Swedish Sara Hector won the gold medal and the American superstar Mikaela Shiffrin suffered a frustrating fall that did not allow her to revalidate the title achieved in Pyeongchang 2018.

Baruzzi, 23, completed the first descent in a time of 1:02.43 to finish 34th among the 82 competitors who started the test. The conditions of the Yanqing slope were not ideal, which meant that 22 skiers could not complete the course, including the favorites Shiffrin and the Italian Marta Bassino. In the second heat, the Argentine improved her record to 1:01.57 to be in thirtieth place among the 60 competitors left in the race. In the general classification, he finished 29 of the 49 that completed both sleeves, with a time of 2:04.00, 8:31 behind Hector, who clocked 1:58.43 to win the gold medal, ahead of the Italian Federica Brignone and the Swiss Lara. Gut-Behrami.

For his part, the cross-country skier Franco Dal Farra will compete again this Tuesday in Beijing from 5:50 (Argentine time) in the free sprint mode, and on Friday he will do it in 15 kilometers.

The remaining Argentine athletes waiting for their respective premieres at Beijing 2022 are Tomás Birkner from Rio Negro (alpine skiing), Neuquén Nahiara Díaz (cross-country skiing) and Victoria Rodríguez (speed skating), and Verónica Ravenna (luge).
