Tessa Worley Wins Lenzerheide Giant Slalom


Tessa Worley secured her first win of the 2017/18 season after finishing in second place three times earlier this winter. The Frenchwoman powered down a challenging giant slalom slope in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, capitalizing on a solid first-run lead to take the win ahead of Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg.
A steep upper pitch and difficult fallaways further down made the slope particularly tough for the world's best GS skiers. With 18 athletes failing to finish the first run and two more skiing out on the second, the whole field was in for a rough ride. Meta Hrovat of Slovenia, wearing bib 28, overcame the challenge to score her career-first podium finish in third. Her previous best result was eighth place earlier this season in Lienz, Austria.
