Italy's Edwin Coratti repeated his win from last year, coming out on top in the men's parallel giant slalom event at the International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Snowboard World Cup in Slovenian resort Rogla.

The 28-year-old beat compatriot Roland Fischnaller by 0.28 seconds in the big final, having defeated Russia's Vic Wild in the last four.

Wild bounced back from that disappointment to overcome fellow Russian Dmitry Loginov by 0.22 seconds in the small final.

Coratti has moved up to third place in the FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup men's parallel giant slalom standings, with 1,700 points.

Fischnaller remains top of the pile on 3,160 points, while Austria's Benjamin Karl, who did not make the last-16 after finishing 28th in qualification today, is second with 1,760.

In the women's event, reigning Olympic champion Ester Ledecká of Czech Republic ended Ramona Theresia Hofmeister's winning run after beating the German in the big final.

Hofmeister, who had won each of the four events on the World Cup tour since finishing seventh in the season-opener in Bannoye in Russia on December 7, failed to finish.

Russia's Natalia Soboleva defeated Austria's Daniela Ulbing in the small final, taking the bronze medal by a margin of 0.11 seconds.

Hofmeister still comfortably leads the FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup women's parallel giant slalom standings.

Nearest challenger Ladina Jenny of Switzerland, who was eliminated by Ulbing in the quarter-finals today, is 1,930 points shy of Hofmeister's total of 3,800.

Germany's Selina Jörg, knocked out by Ulbing in the last-16 today, is a further 230 points behind in third.

Fischnaller and Hofmeister remain the leaders of the overall parallel standings, with point totals of 4,110 and 5,160, respectively.
