Ester Ledecka celebrated her second World Cup win of the season with a convincing triumph in the snowboard parallel giant slalom in Korea.

The reigning Olympic champion, who has spent the first six weeks of the year competing in alpine skiing World Cup, fended off competition from German Selina Georg as the Czech prevailed in PyeongChang.

Winning on the same track she claimed her gold medal in the 2018 Olympics, her result puts her first in the Giant Slalom standings in the Snowboard World Cup, and fourth in the Parallel competition as a whole.

"I feel good. It was a great race,” she said.

"A very well-prepared course, so thanks to everybody for that, and thanks to all the fans for such a great atmosphere. It's fun to be here.”

Ledecka put away overall leader Sabine Schoeffmann in the semi-final for the second time this season, but the Austrian recovered to secure third place.
