Germany's Andrea Rothfuss continued her superb season by winning the overall women's Para Alpine Skiing World Cup giant slalom standing crown in Hakuba today.

It comes in a campaign in which she also won the giant slalom world title in Tarvisio in Italy.

Rothfuss finished in a combined time of 1min 55.16sec across her two runs at the Japanese resort.

Petra Smarzova of Slovakia finished second, 3.16 seconds behind, while The Netherlands' Anna Jochemsen finished in a distant third place in 2:05.32.

It meant Rothfuss guaranteed herself victory with one race to spare.

Slovakia's Henrieta Farkasova and Austria’s Roman Rabl were two others to secure overall giant slalom crowns today.

Farkasova, guided by Natalia Subrtova, returned from two injury ravaged seasons to finish second in 1:58.01 in the women's visually impaired.

Australia's Melissa Perrine triumphed in 1:57.80 while Yang Jae-rim of South Korea took bronze 5.58 seconds behind.

Rabl triumphed in the men's giant slalom sitting division despite finishing second in Hakuba behind Dutch world champion Jeroen Kampschreur.
