Switzerland’s world champion Julie Zogg secured a fifth consecutive women’s parallel slalom Snowboard World Cup title and a second overall title as a nervous spectator on the final day of racing at Berchtesgaden in Germany.

Meanwhile Austria’s Fabian Obmann topped the men’s parallel slalom and parallel overall standings after his first World Cup victory.

After finishing seventh on the day she had to watch and hope as her main rival, home athlete Ramona Theresia Hofmeister, reached the big final, where victory would have given her the overall title.

But victory there for the Czech Republic’s double Olympic champion Ester Ledecka, in only her second race after a long injury lay-off, delivered the honours to the Swiss racer’s door in the International Ski and Snowboard Federation rankings.

Afterwards, however, the 30-year-old double world champion hinted at thoughts of retirement.

"I’m happy that the season is over, and I won the World Champs and now the two Crystal Globes - the big and the small," she said.

"Last time I won the big and the small was 2015 and now I have the big Globe and that’s amazing.

"Today was not my day and it was difficult for me and I have some pressures from my side…

"Now it’s time to chill.

"I’m married this year and we will see if I start next season or not."

Zogg finished the overall standings on 595 points, with Hofmeister on 584 and Austria’s Sabine Schoffmann third on 549.

In the parallel slalom rankings the Swiss racer was top with 345, from Austrians Daniela Ulbing on 290 and Schoffmann on 288.

The men’s race saw Austria’s Arvid Auner beaten in the big final by Obmann and Slovenia’s 36-year-old Rok Marguc beating Cody Winters of the United States in the small final to secure the last podium place.

Obmann finished on 485 points in the men’s parallel overall standings, with Italy’s Maurizio Bormolini on 465 and Austria’s Andreas Prommegger on 481.

In the final parallel slalom standings, Obmann beat Bormolini by just two points, 297 to 295, with third place going to Auner on 251.
