Since coming off a silver medal at Beijing 2022 for the second Olympic podium in her career, Thompson has yet to miss gracing one on the World Cup stage yet. During her first event since Beijing, Thompson placed second in Austria and her silver on Saturday marked the second. Before leaving for Beijing, Thompson had won silver in Nakiska, Alberta.

Canadians Hannah Schmidt and Brittany Phelan, who won bronze last week, finished just shy of the podium, placing fourth and fifth respectively.
