Tina Maze won the women's downhill here on Saturday to break Hermann Maier's 13-year-old record for the most World Cup points collected in a season.

Maze's tally of 2024 bettered Maier's record of 2000 points, set in the 1999-2000 season, for the highest tally of World Cup points and she has already been confirmed as the season's overall winner.

The 29-year-old Slovenian produced a superb technical display down the 3km Khandahar course, leading at every split, with a winning time of 1min 40.46sec, having finished third in Friday's Super-G on the same piste.
