Recently-crowned downhill world champion Ilka Štuhec of Slovenia moved closer to leader Mikaela Shiffrin in the race for the overall International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Skiing World Cup title as she won today's super-G event in Crans-Montana in Switzerland.
Štuhec cut the gap to American Shiffrin to 258 points with nine events remaining as she clocked a time of 1 min 21.78sec.
The 26-year-old was 0.50 quicker than second-placed skier Elena Curtoni of Italy, while Stephanie Venier of Austria was third-fastest.
It proved to be another disappointing outing for American Lindsey Vonn, who suffered a nasty crash due to the softening snow in the Swiss resort.
Vonn was among the leading critics of organisers yesterday as the American team pulled out of the Alpine combined race as they believed the conditions to be too dangerous.
Štuhec, who was second yesterday, now sits in third on the overall standings behind Switzerland's Lara Gut, who suffered a season-ending injury at the recent World Championships, with a total of 965.
Shiffrin, who could only manage 13th in the super-G, has 1,223 points.
"The speed was lower, so I guess they tried to make it a bit safer," the Slovenian said.
"But there were still some key points where you had to do what you had to do to maintain the speed and to carry it all the way down.
"I guess I did that pretty well.”
Olympic super-G gold medallist Kjetil Jansrud won the men's downhill event on home snow in Kvitfjell in Norway as he finished in 1:47.63.
The Norwegian topped the podium in front of Peter Fill of Italy, while Switzerland's Beat Feuz, who claimed the world downhill title in St Moritz, was third.
"I know this hill very well - it's not just home because it's in Norway, it's home because I grew up here so it's a big thing and I think the last time (a Norwegian) won on a Saturday here was Lasse (Kjus) twenty years ago, so this is a big Norwegian day," Jansrud said.
"It's amazing and probably one of my biggest wins.
"I even won my first World Cup race here so there are a lot of good memories in Kvitfjell."
Action at both events continues tomorrow.
