The without are counted. Without Sofia Goggia due to injury, without the public due to Covid, without the most famous for age limits of Lindsey Vonn and Marcel Hirscher. However, the Cortina Ski World Championship must be viewed positively. The World Cup is there. And it was not taken for granted in Covid time. Competitions that start with no winners announced are usually the most interesting and compelling.

Italy hosts the World Ski Championships for the seventh time. They had been missing for 16 years, from Bormio 2005, and it is the third time of cortina d’Ampezzo after those of 1932 and 1956 at the same time as the Olympic Games.

There are 13 podium races in two weeks plus tests, held on 5 tracks. 39 medals are awarded in the 46th edition of the World Championships in which they participate 600 athletes for 70 nations. Italy relies on girls, da Federica Brignone to Marta Bassino, and awaits the men, the revived Dominik Paris and Christoph Innerhofer.
