Maze Wins World Cup Giant Slalom in Aspen as Vonn Finishes 21st

Nov. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Tina Maze of Slovenia won her second consecutive World Cup skiing giant slalom as Lindsey Vonn finished 21st in her return to the slopes.

Maze, 29, had a combined time of 1 minute, 59.39 seconds for two runs in Aspen, Colorado, to beats Austria’s Kathrin Zettel by 0.90 seconds. It was the same top-two finish as at last month’s season-opening race in Austria and keeps Maze at the top of the overall World Cup standings.

Vonn, a 28-year-old American, was racing for the first time since being hospitalized three days last week with severe intestinal pain. The four-time World Cup overall champion was in 10th place after her opening run, but had the third-slowest second pass.

Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal beat Austria’s Max Franz by 0.64 seconds to take the first men’s downhill of the season in Lake Louise, Alberta. It was the 17th World Cup victory for the 29-year-old.

Austria’s Klauss Kroell, the defending World Cup downhill champion, and American Marco Sullivan tied for third.

The women will race a slalom tomorrow in Aspen, while the men run a super-G in Lake Louise.
