Overall champion Gut adds super-G title in St Moritz
Swiss star Lara Gut added the super-G title to her overall International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cup crown on home snow in St Moritz today.
The 24-year-old, who secured the overall title last time out in Lenzerheide, was second in the discipline today which was enough to top the super-G pile on 481 points.
Rival Tina Weirather won today’s race at the season-ending World Cup but couldn’t overhaul Gut’s tally and finished second in the super-G rankings.
The Liechtenstein skier has a tally of 436 points with American Lindsey Vonn, who is missing the last races of the season through injury, third on 420.
Weirather won in a time 1 min 18.93 sec ahead of Gut who clocked 1:19.34.
Austria took third place as Cornelia Hütter skied home in 1:19.52.
It was Vonn who began the day on top in the super-G, with Gut only needing a sixth place finish or better to overhaul her.
The Swiss has now won the super-G title twice in her career.
