Edoardo Frau comincia con tre podi la difesa della Coppa del Mondo, ma che sfida con il ceco Bartak
The world championship of grass skiing comes alive in that of Marbachegg (Switzerland).
And after the second day of competitions of this world championship, Italy rises to two medals thanks to the umpteenth pearl of Edoardo Frau. After the gold won on Wednesday in the super combined, the 39-year-old ace blue gets on the podium also in giant slalom, snatching a bronze that is worth a lot and means 17th world medal for the native of Asiago. In the race that awarded the gold to the Swiss Stefan Portmann, the silver to the Czech Martin Bartak (ruler of the 2019 World Cup right in front of Frau), detached by 1 "14, Frau took the medal concluding at 1 "22 from the Swiss and only 8 cents from the silver of the great rival. Pietro Guarini is also good, fourth at 1 "50 from the top, but many blues fill the ranking. Daniele Buio will finish eighth, Fabrizio Rottigni ninth, Nicholas Anziutti tenth and Nicol├▓ Schiavetti eleventh. Outside in the first race instead Lorenzo Gritti, who will focus everything on the slalom scheduled for Saturday, after the rest day scheduled for Friday. Among the women, comes the second gold for the Japanese Chisaki Maeda, which once again precedes the Austrian Jacqueline Gerlach and the teammate Yukiyo Shintani. No Italian has completed the test, after having touched the medals in super combined.
