Bella Wright lead the way for the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team squad in the 2023 World Championships alpine combined event on Monday with a 13th-place finish. This event's alpine combined consisted of one super-G run and one slalom run.

“My super-G run started off with over-skiing and some mistakes,” said Wright. “But at the end of the day, I'm happy I made it to the finish line and was able to get a top-to-bottom run and experience this track for Wednesday's race.”

After the first run, Mikaela Shiffrin was sitting in the fourth fastest spot. Several racers did not choose to ski the slalom portion, thus bumping Shiffrin from sixth to fourth. For the slalom run, Shiffrin was sending it, but got off her groove towards the bottom of the run, causing her to straddle and be disqualified.

“For me, my run felt very good. It was everything I wanted to do in a slalom run, and of course it is disappointing not to finish,” said Shiffrin. “In the end, it’s the World Championships, you go for gold and sometimes it doesn’t work out.”

The winner of the alpine combined went to Italian skier Frederica Brignone with a 1.62 second advantage over second place Swiss skier Wendy Holdener. The bronze went to Austrian skier Ricarda Haaser.  

Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team members Breezy Johnson and Tricia Mangan also raced but did not finish the super-G run.

The women will now have a downhill training run on Feb. 7 and a super-G on Feb. 8. The men will compete in the alpine combined on the Courchevel track Feb. 7. Watch the race live on Peacock, presented by Stifel, or
