The 65th Kandahar Races are over and we can look back on two successful, fair and exciting race weekends in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
This would not be possible without the numerous volunteer´s energetic help, in the valley as well as on the mountain.
Big thanks for your commitment! We are already looking forward to the races next year and hope that you will be there again!
Thank you Team Kandahar!
After her victory in the speed downhill on Saturday, Lindsey Vonn was the fastest lady in yesterday´s Downhill too. But she was closely followd by Sofia Goggia (ITA) +0,11 and Tina Weirather (LIE) +0,12.
It was more than exciting – thank you and congratulations to you Ladies!
The OC Garmisch-Partenkirchen with all the engaged volunteers is looking back on two successful race weekends with phenomenal and exciting runs as well as a great atmosphere in the finish area with thousands of cheering spectators.
After the two downhill trainings had to be cancelled, today the slope was in a very good condition.
After a training run in the morning the speed downhill started at 12:30.
The Ladies showed an exciting race but nobody was as fast as Lindsey Vonn (USA). She ensured her 80th Worldcup victory in a hundredth thriller on the Kandahar. Only two hundredths of a second behind, on the second place, was Sofia Goggia (ITA) followed by Cornelia Huetter (AUT) on the third place with 13 hundredths of a second behind.
Congrats to you Ladies – you did a great job!

Fritz Dopfer und Linus Strasser showed especially a great second run and ranked 15th and 20th – congratulations!

HEAD is a new partner of the organising commitee Ski Worldcup Garmisch-Partenkirchen. All the employees and volunteers will be equipped with functional jackets of HEAD which are produced especially for the Ski Worldcup.
Walter Zehrer, HEAD Germany, and Peter Fischer, OC president, are both pleased with this cooperation and are convinced that the jackets are perfectly suited for the work assignments at the 65th Kandahar races.
Good news! Today FIS gave green light for the 65th Men´s Kandahar Races on 27.01./28.01.2018.
Inter alia the “Freie Fall” with 92 percent, the steepest part in the alpine ski worldcup, is prepared for the world´s best athletes.
Adrenaline and tension is guaranteed for the downhill on Saturday and for the Giant Slalom on Sunday.
First time in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and first time at all in the world cup calendar: the Ladies´ Sprint Downhill on 3 February 2018 on the Kandahar.
The mode of the sprint downhill is similar to the giant slalom and slalom: the best 30 athletes of the first run are going to start in reverse order in the second run. But the two runs will take place directly one after another - without a break in between and without another inspection!
The first run starts at 10.30, the second one at 12.30.
Don´t miss this premiere – get your tickets for the Ladies´ sprint downhill on 3 February 2018 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen!
The Organizing Committee of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup in Garmisch-Partenkirchen has formed a cooperation with the Department of Media and Communications of the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
"TUM is one of the best universities in Germany. The FIS Ski World Cup in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is one of the great classics in the entire Ski World Cup. This is an ideal partnership, of which we are very proud,” says Peter Fischer, President of OK Garmisch-Partenkirchen. "We are very pleased to have won the partnership of such a top-notch sports partner", says Prof. Dr. med. Michael Schaffrath, Head of the Department of Media and Communication at the Sports and Health Sciences Faculty of the TUM. Between September 2017 and February 2018, faculty members and students will manage the Facebook page of the Ski World Cup. “We have researched and studied social media and recently, our colleague Fabian Kautz completed his doctoral thesis on 'Social Media in Sport'. The first beneficiary of this scientific work will be the OK Ski World Cup, where our research results will be implemented and tested in practice,” explains Prof. Schaffrath. Secondly, TUM will support the media presentation of the Ski World Cup on site in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This will be led by former BR presenter and ARD reporter Gerd Rubenbauer. At the two Men's World Cups (27th/28th of January 2018) and the Ladies Races (3rd / 4th February 2018), students of the bachelor's program "Sport Science" will support the media presentation in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Among other things, they will conduct interviews with the racers immediately after training and racing runs - for example Lindsey Vonn, Viktoria Rebensburg, Marcel Hirscher, Fritz Dopfer and Felix Neureuther. The short interviews will then be translated and made available to journalists for their coverage. "For our students, this is a great opportunity to get practical insight into an interesting occupational field, to make contacts and to further develop their competences acquired at the university," explains Prof. Schaffrath.
