Skiing...and in Yugoslavia, Hanni Wenzel of Liechtenstein, has won the Women's World Ski Cup Slalom for the second year running.
SYNOPSIS: Hanni Wenzel had clocked the fastest time in the first of two runs, and this second run confirmed her supremacy.
Miss Wenzel's total time for the two runs - ninety-two point seven one seconds.
Sixty four competitors from thirteen countries had entered the competition, but the course claimed twenty-one retirements in the first run. Christa Kinshofer of West Germany was a strong contender.
However, Fraulein Kinshofer's run was not quite good enough, and she finished in second place, point eight one seconds behind Hanni Wenzel. It was a demanding course - fifty-five gates dropping through one hundred and seventy metres (186 yards).
Third was Italy's Maria Rosa Quairo. After her first run, she was in eighth place. Her second run gave her a total of ninety-three point eight two seconds.
