Fanny Smith made it the perfect 10 on home snow today after backing up her ninth win in the ski-cross International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cup yesterday, while Sweden's Victor Oehling Norberg was also victorious in the men's competition in Arosa, Switzerland.
On a high after her Friday's victory, Smith darted into an early lead to the delight of the home crowd and held onto her advantage with the victor admitted afterwards that she was surprised that she was able to win both of the weekend's races.
"It was my goal to win in my homeland, and I really skied perfectly these two races," the 22year-old from Aigle said.
"I'm really proud and I'm really happy.
"My best friend and my family came here, and so many people here to watch, and the organisation was brilliant.
"I had so many people all down the course cheering me and it was good for me today."
Anna Holmlund of Sweden had to settle for second behind Smith for the second consecutive day, but her frustration should be eased as the result put her into the lead in the overall World Cup classification, while Russia's Sofia Smirnova was third.
Norberg, leading in the men's standings prior to today's race, was able to extend his advantage over the competition to 104 points after clinching another win.
Russia's Sergey Ridzik and Daniel Bohnacker of Germany trailed Norberg in second and third places respectively with the ski cross World Cup resuming next week in Norberg's home town of Are, Sweden, with back-to-back races again.
