Switzerland’s Lara Gut added the women’s super-G World Cup title to the overall crystal globe she had already captured after finishing second in the final speed race of the season on Thursday.

Gut needed a top-six finish on home snow in St Moritz to be sure of overtaking American Lindsey Vonn, whose season was ended early by a knee injury.

Second place, however, was good enough for the 24-year-old to celebrate a second title in the discipline after 2014.

The winner on the day was Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein.

It was the second victory of the season in the super-G for the 26-year-old from Vaduz while it was her sixth career World Cup success.

She also surpassed Vonn to take the runners-up spot in the season-long super-G standings.

Rounding out the St Moritz podium was Cornelia Huetter.

In ideal racing conditions the Austrian was 0.59 seconds off the pace in third leaving her in fourth place in the super-G standings for the season.
