The weather forecast for Day 3 of the 2018 World Juniors proved accurate and according to coaches reports, there was probably more than 15cm. of new snow that fell overnight on the Jakobshorn. The ladies and those men who did not participate in yesterday’s downhill had their free-ski on the Super G track, to prepare for the scheduled SG races on Friday.
So a lay day provides the opportunity for a backgrounder on the World Juniors.
Davos 2018 is the 39th edition of the FIS Alpine Junior World Ski Championships. Originally run as the European Junior Championships, in 1982 the FIS adopted the World Championship status with FIS medals and the designation of “FIS Alpine Junior World Champion” to the gold medalist of each event.
