Weirather Edges Maze In Garmisch For First World Cup Win

March 1 (Bloomberg) -- Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather claimed her first World Cup ski title by beating pre-race favorite Tina Maze in today’s Super-G race in Germany.

Weirather finished in a time of one minute, 19.82 seconds on the Kandahar 2 course in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Julia Mancuso of the U.S., last year’s winner, and overall World Cup champion Maze of Slovenia tied for second, 0.12 seconds behind.

The 23-year-old Weirather had never won a race on the World Cup circuit in 73 starts. Earlier this season, she finished third in the giant slalom in Soelden, Austria and in the downhill in Lake Louise, Canada. Weirather’s parents, Harti Weirather and Hanni Wenzel, won 39 World Cup events between them.

Maze last week clinched the women’s overall World Cup title by winning the super-combined event in Meribel, France. Today’s race didn’t change the standings in the Super-G, with Maze leading with 370 points ahead of Mancuso’s 305 points.

The women continue tomorrow in Garmisch with a downhill race, followed by another Super-G on March 3.
