SCHLADMING, Austria (AP) - Olympic champion Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany has won the super-combined title at the world championships.
Hoefl-Riesch was fourth after the downhill portion Friday before posting the second-fastest time in the slalom to finish in 2 minutes, 39.92 seconds. The German beat Tina Maze of Slovenia by 0.46.
Former overall champion Nicole Hosp was one second behind in third to earn Austria a first medal at its home worlds.
Maze had shared the lead after the first run with Austria's Anna Fenninger, who straddled a gate and failed to finish the slalom.
