Skiing: Aubert finds second wind to clinch World Cup slalom in Zagreb
Monday 04 January 2010
Frenchwoman Sandrine Aubert claimed her second win of the season yesterday with victory in the World Cup slalom in Zagreb. Aubert, who also triumphed in Are, produced a brilliant second run to triumph in two minutes 0.36 seconds.
She finished 0.43 seconds ahead of Austrian Kathrin Zettel and 0.74 seconds clear of Germany's Susanne Riesch. Fourth-placed Maria Riesch was denied a podium spot by her sister but will be consoled by topping the overall standings on 599 points after 14 events.
Meanwhile, Eldar Roenning of Norway and Petra Majdic of Slovenia won the 1.6-km sprints yesterday on the concluding leg of the cross-country Tour de Ski in Germany. Roenning left Norwegian team-mate and overall World Cup leader Petter Northug 2.1 seconds behind in the classic-style race. Axel Teichmann of Germany was third.
