Skiing: Kostelic claims another gold
Monday 25 November 2002
Janica Kostelic of Croatia claimed gold in the Women's World Cup slalom in Park City, Utah, on Saturday. She won a record four medals at the Salt Lake City games earlier this year, including gold on the slalom, and the 20-year-old added a World Cup title to her growing list of prizes with another accomplished display.
Kostelic twisted her way down the deteriorating Clementine course in a two-run combined time of 1min 39.61sec. The Frenchwoman Christelle Pascal was the only skier to get within a second of the Croat. The World Championship silver medallist crossed in second with a time of 1:40.31. Austria's Sabine Egger produced a remarkable turnaround to clinch third. Starting in 15th place, she ended on 1:40.75. The World Cup slalom champion Laure Pequegnot, of France, was fourth in 1:40.79, while Sarah Schleper was the highest placed US skiier, taking sixth with 1:41.21.
