Rebensburg wins GS title as winds cancel season-ending race



ARE, Sweden — Viktoria Rebensburg has won the World Cup giant slalom title for a third time Sunday after the season-ending race was cancelled due to strong winds.

The German skier, who won three GS races this season, leads the standings by 92 points from world champion Tessa Worley of France, who won the title last season.

The race jury first lowered the start gate to avoid gusts higher up on the mountain, but then called off the race as conditions didn’t seem safe for a giant slalom.

Rebensburg, the Olympic GS gold medallist in 2010, also won the World Cup GS title in 2010-11 and 2011-12. In the overall standings, Rebensburg finishes third behind winner Mikaela Shiffrin and runner-up Wendy Holdener.

The final men’s slalom was scheduled for later Sunday.
