HOEFL-RIESCH TO DEFEND NARROW WORLD CUP LEAD

0

ALTENMARKT, Austria: Overall World Cup leader Maria Hoefl-Riesch has her work cut out this weekend if she wants to retain her top place amid strong challenges from her young rivals, four weeks out from the Olympics. Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather is just two points behind in the standings, and Swiss skier Marianne Kaufmann-Abderhalden is also hot on her heels in the downhill. Anything less than a win on Saturday could see the German double Olympic champion toppled from her position as number one.
