URGENT ¥¥¥ Alpine skiing: Slovenian Maze wins World Cup overall title

Slovenia's Tina Maze claimed the women's overall World Cup title on Sunday after victory in the super-combined here left her with an unassailable lead atop the standings with nine events still to race.

The 29-year-old has now amassed 1,844 points, meaning she cannot be caught by her closest rival, Germany's Maria Hoefl-Riesch, who has 886 points.

Hoefl-Riesch fell in the slalom section of the super-combined.
