Germany’s Viktoria Rebensburg triumphed in her second straight women’s World Cup giant slalom in Slovenia on Saturday despite an early mistake.
The 2010 Olympic champion hit a bumb and only managed to make the next gate by slowing her pace considerably.
She finished on a two-run time of two minutes, 29.82 seconds.
It was Rebensburg’s 10th victory in the giant slalom, matching the German best mark set by Martina Ertl-Rentz from 1994 to 2003.
Her victory put her point 32 seconds ahead of second place Ana Drev from the host country Slovenia who earned her second podium finish.
Drev said it was her dream to ski well in her home race and described it as an incredible feeling.
Third place went to Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather, just point 02 of a second behind Drev.
Weirather said the course and conditions had been tough for them all and that she was proud of her performance overall.
A slalom on the same course was due to take place on Sunday.
