Switzerland’s Lara Gut-Behrami has won the women’s giant slalom at the Alpine skiing world championships with Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin, of the United States, having to settle for silver.
Austria’s Katharina Liensberger took the bronze medal in Thursday’s race.
The gold was the second of the Cortina championships for Gut-Behrami, who won last Thursday’s opening super-G.
She beat the combined gold medallist Shiffrin, who was leader after the first giant slalom leg, by a mere two hundredths of a second.
The silver was the 10th medal of Shiffrin’s world championship career.
