Muffy sweeps four titles in World Cup

The competition was tougher this year, which makes her achievement all the more satisfying, U.S. Disabled Ski Team racer Muffy Davis said Monday from Park City, Utah.

Mono-skier Davis, 29, called the Express on Monday with the big news that she has now swept all four season titles on the Disabled World Cup for the 2001-02 season—slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom and the overall championship.

Is this the best winter of racing for the 1995 Stanford University graduate? "Consistently, I’ve been skiing very well," said Davis, on top of the standings after World Cups in Austria, Germany, Canada and at Snowbasin, Utah.

Last winter Davis won three titles—slalom, giant slalom and her first overall crystal globe on the World Cup. The 2000 world GS queen added the SG title this winter, clinching it during World Cup races Friday at Kimberley, B.C., Canada.

"This year it was a very close race," said Davis, who began downhill training Tuesday on Snowbasin’s Wildflower ski run for the 2002 Paralympics, which open Friday.

She has some trepidation about Friday’s Paralympics downhill. "I just want to get through it," she said. But she feels more comfortable knowing she’s got the World Cup title in her pocket.

"The Paralympics are just one race. The World Cup is the entire season," she said.

More about Muffy’s Paralympics schedule is in the Sports Section, page B3 of this week's printed edition of the Idaho Mountain Express.
