Germany's Stefan Baumeister and Daniela Ulbing of Austria claimed parallel giant slalom victories at the International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Snowboard World Cup in Carezza in Italy.

In the men's competition, Baumeister defeated Italian Edwin Coratti to make it into the semi-finals and was joined by Dmitrii Loginov of Russia, who knocked out the other home favourite Mirko Felicetti.

Baumeister took the victory in the big final when Loginov failed to finish.

Coratti took third after Felicetti did not finish his run in the small final.

The top eight were completed by Austrian Benjamin Karl, Lee Sang-ho of South Korea, Dario Caviezel of Switzerland and Italian Maurizio Bormolini.

Ulbing made it into the women's final by beating Ramona Theresia Hofmeister of Germany in the semi-finals.

She was joined by Czech snowboarder Ester Ledecká, who eased past Japanese Tsubaki Miki.

A mistake by Ledecká in the big final ensured Ulbing claimed the gold, while Hofmeister was comfortably ahead of Miki for the bronze.

Completing the top eight were Julia Dujmovits of Austria, Swiss pair Julie Zogg and Ladina Jenny and Russia's Daria Klink.

The next leg of the World Cup is scheduled to take place in Cortina d'Ampezzo, starting on Saturday (December 18).
