Lara Gut (Italian pronunciation: [ˈlaːra ˈɡuːt], (born 27 April 1991) is a Swiss World Cup alpine ski racer who competes in all disciplines except slalom and specializes in the speed events of downhill and super-G.




Lara Gut was born in Sorengo, Canton Ticino. Her father, Pauli Gut, is Swiss, and her mother, Gabriella Almici, who is masseuse, was born in Zone, Lombardy. Gut participated in her first FIS races at age 15 in December 2006. At the Alpine Youth World Championship 2007 at Altenmarkt, Austria, she won silver in downhill. In the same year, she became Swiss national champion in super-G, the second youngest champion of all time. In the 2007 season, Gut finished 2nd in the downhill standings of the Europa Cup.

In late December 2007, Gut made her World Cup debut in a giant slalom at Lienz, Austria. In January 2008, at Caspoggio, she won four consecutive Europa Cup races. At her first World Cup downhill race on 2 February 2008, Gut made the podium at third place at St. Moritz, despite falling on the finishing pitch and sliding on her back through the finish line; she finished only 0.35 seconds behind the winner. She followed her World Cup speed debut with a fifth-place finish in the super-G the next day. Following the 2008 season, Gut was moved up to the World Cup team for the 2009 season.

Early in her first full season, Gut won her first World Cup race on 20 December 2008, a super-G in St. Moritz, finishing 0.63 seconds ahead of runner-up Fabienne Suter. Gut became the youngest skier to win a World Cup super-G race, at 17.65 years (17 years, 237 days).

At the 2009 World Championships at Val-d’Isère, France, Gut won silver medals in the downhill and the super combined, more than two months before her 18th birthday.

On 29 September 2009, Gut fell during training at Saas-Fee, Switzerland, and dislocated her hip. She was transported by helicopter to a hospital in Visp, where it was reset. The Swiss Ski Federation initially reported that Gut would be out of competition for at least a month. In January 2010, it was announced that Gut would miss the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver because of slow recovery from the hip injury.She sat out the entire 2010 season, but returned for the 2011 season and earned four podiums, which included a victory in the super-G at Altenmarkt-Zauchensee in January.

Gut switched ski suppliers following the 2011 season, leaving Atomic for a three-year deal with Rossignol. Though she had seven top ten finishes in three disciplines during the 2012 World Cup season, she did not reach a podium; her best results were three top-five finishes.

In December 2012, Gut won her first World Cup downhill in Val-d’Isère, France. She finished ahead of American Leanne Smith (0.16 sec) and fellow Swiss skier Nadja Kamer (0.5 sec).

Gut won her first Olympic medal in the downhill in 2014 at Sochi. She took the bronze, finishing 0.10 seconds behind Tina Maze and fellow Swiss skier Dominique Gisin, who both won the gold. In World Cup, she won the Super-G season title and finished third overall in 2014.

After four years with Rossignol, Gut changed to Head equipment in May 2015.

Gut is fluent in Italian, German, French, English and Spanish.
