SQUAW VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - Olympian Tim Jitloff won the giant slalom at the U.S. Alpine Championships by more than 1½ seconds Friday, when Sochi Games gold medalist Ted Ligety failed to finish.

Ligety was in third place after the opening run, but he skied out on the second leg.

Jitloff earned his fifth national title, including a consecutive in giant slalom. He also won that event in 2008 and 2009, along with a combined title in 2009.

He finished Friday's two runs in 2 minutes, 22.45 seconds. Brennan Rubie was next in 2:24.06, turning in the fastest second leg to rise from sixth place. Jared Goldberg finished third.
