Slovenian Tina Maze won the Giant Slalom that just finished a few moments ago in Courchevel, France. Her aggregated time of both runs was 2:16:84, 0.22 tenths of a second less than 2nd best.
With this win Maze has won all the 4 Giant Slalom held till now.
This week’s winter sports has been great for a small and wonderful country like Slovenia since Biathlete Jakov Fak recorded his first career win last Thursday (Biathlon Sprint Event) and a few minutes ago reached another fantastic 2nd place in the Mass Start.
Second place went to Austrian Kathrin Zettel and third to Tessa Worley (France). These 2 skiers swapped place since in Run 1 Worley did 2nd and Zettel 3rd.
Tina Maze is, of course, the current World Cup leader in The Giant Slalom. She also leads the Super Combined event.
In the overall Alpine Skiing classification Tina Maze leads as well with a huge advantage ( 331 points) over second best classified Maria Höfl-Riesch from Germany that today finished the GS just in 26th.
And skiing seems not to be Maze’s only skill. She also sings and one can say very well! See video below.
Kathrin Zettel moved to 3rd overall at the cost of USA’s Lindsey Vonn and is now just 28 points apart from Maria Höfl-Riesch’s 2nd place.
The next Women’s Giant Slalom will be held at Åre (Sweden) next December 19th.
