• Velez-Zuzulova completes Flachau double


    FLACHAU, Austria: Slovak Veronika Velez-Zuzulova won the women’s World Cup slalom in Flachau on Saturday to complete the double four days after winning the night slalom in the Austrian resort. The 31-year-old clocked a combined time of 1:49.99 over two runs to finish 0.20sec ahead of Swede Frida Hansdotter, the World Cup leader in the discipline. Another Slovak, Petra Vlhova, winner in Are in December, was third at 0.53 in the event which replaced the race at Ofterschwang, Germany, which was cancelled because of a lack of snow. French skier Nastasia Noens clocked the fastest time in the first run, but finished just off the podium at 0.72. Czech Sarka Strachova, the 2007 world champion, finished fifth on Friday, missing out on the podium for the first time this season.
