Austrian Anna Fenninger claimed Olympic gold in a drama-packed women's super-G on Saturday that saw a number of racers struggle to finish the demanding course.

After only three of the starting 10 racers had made it down the 2.2km-long Rosa Khutor course, Fenninger, starting with bib number 18, clocked 1min 25.52sec for victory.

Germany's Maria Hoefl-Riesch won silver at 0.55sec to go with the gold she won in Monday's super-combined, while combined silver medallist Nicole Hosp of Austria took bronze, a further 0.11sec adrift.
