In the super combined, instead, the advantage of the 'blue has become abysmal: well 1 "23 on Abrahamova and 1" 75 on the Slovak Nikola Fricova, climb on the third step of the podium.
In the men, the podiums obtained by Edoardo Frau (back from the double world champion) and Filippo Zamboni in the super-g of the morning could be fundamental, both classified behind the Iranian Seyed Jafari, today absolute master of the two races.
Also good was the fourth place in the speed test of Nicol├▓ Schiavetti, while Lorenzo Gritti is eighth. In the next super-combined, there is also the Iranian triplet with Jafari, ahead of Sologhani and Kalhor; in fourth place is Frau, ahead of Zamboni, with Gritti seventh and Schiavetti eighth.
