LAKE LOUISE, Alberta Dec. 5, 2004 (AP) – Michaela Dorfmeister of Austria cut through falling snow to win the first women’s World Cup super giant slalom of the season Sunday.
Dorfmeister finished in 1 minute, 16.24 seconds. Teammate Renate Goetschl was second in 1:16.39, followed by Lindsey Kildow of the United States in 1:16.64.
“The pressure is always on Austrians,” Dorfmeister said. “Now we have our first victory. It’s a very good beginning for the Austrian girls. For me it was a very good beginning. I went 120 percent.”
The super-G wrapped up a weekend of racing that also featured two downhills. Kildow won Friday’s downhill, while Hilde Gerg of Germany won on Saturday. “Not bad,” Kildow said. “It beats all my results from last year already in three days. I can’t be too disappointed in that.”
