What is Lara Gut-Behrami's health status? According to media reports, the 30-year-old has been suffering from a cold for a long time.

Lara Gut-Behrami took the podium at the season opener in Sölden.

That's what

  • Lara Gut-Behrami is said to be suffering from a stubborn cold.

  • The Swiss skier struggled for air after her first downhill training.

  • All November she was only able to train less.

Lara Gut-Behrami's first downhill training in Lake Louise did not go according to plan. With a gap of 3.05 seconds, the Ticino placed behind the training winner Sofia Goggia. Training residue is usually not a cause for concern. As the Keystone-SDA news agency reported on Wednesday, Lara Gut-Behrami was completely out of breath after the run and is said to have gasped for breath.

As the news agency continues to write, Gut-Behrami has been suffering from a bad cold for weeks. The report refers to information from the Swiss Ski environment. In November Gut-Behrami only trained five times due to the illness. She also prepared in Austria and not in Canada. Already in mid-November, after the parallel race in Lech/Zürs, the woman from Ticino announced that she was suffering from flu.

This weekend there is a mammoth program on the calendar for the 30-year-old. On Friday and Saturday the women start the speed season with a downhill run. A Super-G is on the program on Sunday. Lara Gut-Behrami is not the only Swiss woman who will compete in Lake Louise. With Corinne Suter, Jasmine Flury, Priska Nufer, Joana Hählen, Noémie Kolly and Stephanie Jenal, six other drivers have been nominated.
