Cortina D’Ampezzo, Italy Jan.27, 2002 (AP)–Norwegian Stina Hofgard Nilsen tore through the second run to overtake teammate Andrine Flemmen for her first World Cup victory Sunday, while Americans Sarah Schleper (Vail, CO) and Kristina Koznick (Burnsville, MN) finished 14-15 in the final women’s World Cup race for the U.S. in the Olympic selection period.

Outdoor Life will televise coverage of the GS Thursday at 8 p.m. EST.

Nilsen had the second-fastest second run to win in 2:44.37 while Flemmen led the first run but had problems in her final run, dropping to second, six-tenths back.

Schleper was 14th with a time of 2:46.54 with Koznick 15th in 2:46.58.

The U.S. Olympic Alpine Team will be named Monday at 2 p.m. EST. Meanwhile, the women’s side of the Cafe de Colombia World Cup moves on to Are, Sweden, for — as it did in 1998 — the final pre-Olympic races, a giant slalom, downhill, slalom and combined calculation starting Thursday.
