SKIING

WORLD CUP: Swiss skier Lara Gut-Behrami came from a long way behind to win a women’s World Cup giant slalom in Soldeu, Andorra, by one-hundredth of a second, and overtake the absent Mikaela Shiffrin on top of the overall standings.

Gut-Behrami improved from ninth position after the opening run to edge out New Zealand’s Alice Robinson. Shiffrin’s teammate AJ Hurt finished 0.15 behind in third for the American’s first career podium in GS.

Enjoying a three-race winning streak, Gut-Behrami raised her season’s tally to 1,214 points, five more than Shiffrin, who sits out this weekend’s races to nurse a left knee injury.

• Swiss star Marco Odermatt dominated a men’s World Cup giant slalom in Bansko, Bulgaria, to claim his ninth straight win in the discipline.

Odermatt wasn’t clean on the icy steep middle part of the Banderitza course in either run. But he gained time on his competitors in all other sections as he extended his lead from the first leg to finish 0.91 seconds ahead of runner-up Alexander Steen Olsen of Norway.

Austrian skier Manuel Feller was 1.08 behind in third as the top three kept their positions from the first run.
