Tessa Worley completed a French double at the International Ski Federation Alpine Ski World Cup in Lenzerheide as she backed up Romane Miradoli’s shock super-G victory with giant slalom success.

Just 24 hours after Miradoli overcame overall World Cup leader Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States to top the podium, Worley ensured another win for France in the Swiss resort.

Worley claimed her second World Cup win of the season with a combined winning time of 2min 2.35sec to overcome Italy’s Federica Brignone and Sweden’s Sara Hector who both medalled.

Hector led with a first-run time of 1:01.11, moving ahead of Shiffrin and Worley who clocked 1:01.22 and 1:01.27 respectively.

Brignone challenged for top spot with a storming second run of 1:00.53 before Worley stormed down the course in 1:01.08 to clinch victory as Hector could only manage 1:01.55.

Second place went to Brignone on 2:02.64 with Hector claiming bronze with 2:02.66.

Worley’s victory also boosts her chances of winning the Crystal Globe in giant slalom having triumphed in both Lenzerheide and Lienz this season.

Hector leads the standings in the discipline with 522 points, followed by Worley on 467 and Shiffrin on 411.

There are just two giant slalom races left of the campaign with the first scheduled to take place in Åre in Sweden on Friday (March 11) and the second set to be held in Méribel in France on March 20.
