Maze Wins Super-G Title as High Winds Cancel Final Race
Slovenia’s Tina Maze won her first super-G title and her fourth in total this season after the World Cup’s final speed race was canceled because of high winds in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.
The 29-year-old has dominated ski racing this season. Before today, she had already secured titles in the super- combined, giant slalom and the overall championship on the alpine World Cup circuit. She finished the super-G with 420 points, 55 points clear of Julia Mancuso of the U.S. while Austria’s Anna Fenninger was third.
It’s the second day in a row the World Cup finals have been canceled because of bad weather.
AmericanLindsey Vonn, whose season ended last month with a knee injury, yesterday clinched a record sixth straight women’s World Cup downhill title one point clear of Maze after fog caused the final downhill event of the season to be called off.
Today’s men’s super-G race was also canceled. The title had already been secured by Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal two weeks ago after four wins this season. Svindal won the men’s downhill title yesterday.
