Ester Ledecka secured her first win in World Cup Super-G competition when taking top spot at Val d’Isere, while Alexis Pinturault secured his first win on the fabled Gran Risa to win the men's Giant Slalom at Alta Badia.
Ledecka made history at the 2018 Olympics when winning the Super-G in alpine skiing and the parallel giant slalom in snowboarding, becoming the first person to win two gold medals at the same Winter Olympics using two different types of equipment.
At Val D’Isere on Sunday, Ledecka produced a supreme display to post a time of 1:24.64 - 0.03 ahead of Corinne Suter of Switzerland, who was also runner-up to Sofia Goggia in the Downhill discipline on Saturday.
