Beat Feuz moves to top of downhill standings

• Beat Feuz won the last men’s World Cup downhill race before the Olympics to underline his status as a gold-medal favorite. The world champion, second in Kitzbuehel, Austria, last week, completed the 2-mile Kandahar course in 1 minute, 55.39 seconds, beating both Austria’s Vincent Kriechmayr and Italy’s Dominik Paris by 0.18 seconds in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. It was the third win of the season for Feuz, his 15th overall, and it ensured the Swiss took the lead in the downhill standings from Aksel Lund Svindal. Feuz, who was 10 points behind the Norwegian, now leads him by 40.

• Tessa Worley of France had perfect timing to win her first World Cup race of the season in the final giant slalom before the Pyeongchang Olympics. World champion Worley survived a tricky passage through the steep first three gates of her second run to hold off Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany by 0.07 seconds in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. Unheralded 19-year-old Meta Hrovat placed third, 1.45 behind Worley. Hrovat gave the Slovenia team a first-time podium finisher for the second straight day.
