Sandrine Aubert won the women’s slalom race at Are (Sweden) Sunday. It is the second skiing victory for a French woman this weekend; Tessa Worley won the giant slalom Saturday.
AFP - Sandrine Aubert of France won the women's slalom race at Are on Sunday, edging out German sisters Maria and Susanne Riesch by 0.46 and 0.96sec.
Standing second after the opening run, Aubert went one better to bag her third World Cup win - all of them in slalom.
Having already won at the same venue in last year's season finals, the 27-year-old Aubert had again carefully prepared her mission and had her reward as she gave France further glory on the heels of Tessa Worley's giant slalom success on Saturday.
In placing second, Maria Riesch, who had stood 0.6sec clear of Aubert following the opening run, went top of the overall World Cup standings after US star Lindsey Vonn could only come in eighth, 2.13sec off the pace.
