Kriechmayr’s participation in Wengen was controversial. He had only recently tested positive for corona and should have been quarantined according to the rules and therefore not allowed to participate, but the international ski federation FIS granted him a special dispensation. This exemption led to protests, especially from its French and Swiss competitors, but the FIS did not bow to those objections.
Swiss Marco Odermatt finished fourth in the classic on the Lauberhorn at 0.46 and consolidated his lead in the overall World Cup standings. He is well ahead of Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, who set the seventh fastest time in Wengen.
