(Reuters) – Slovenia’s Andreja Slokar won her second World Cup race when she prevailed in the final giant slalom of the season in Courchevel, France, on Saturday.
The 24-year-old, who also won a parallel slalom in Zürs, Austria, set a combined best time of 1min 36.54s this season thanks to a superb second run, beating Germany’s Lena Dürr by 0.48s.
Dürr, who was in the lead after the morning run, was chasing her second World Cup win nine years after her first.
Slovakia’s Petra Vhlova, who had already bagged the World Cup title in this discipline, finished third, 0.81 seconds behind.
Eighth was the American Mikaela Shiffrin, overall World Cup winner, who won the Super-G and the downhill at the World Cup final.
