The French ski professionals Tessa Worley, last Thursday, for the second time in her career, the world title in the giant slalom captured.

The 27-year-old Worley was in the Swiss Sankt Moritz in the first run is clearly the strongest and they retained enough of its lead in the second descent.

The American Mikaela Shiffrin, two-time world champion in the slalom, made in the second run, nearly four-tenths of its backlog, but they had a rate of 0.34 second of Worley to settle for silver.

Sofia Goggia, second after the first run, won the bronze. The 24-year-old Italian was very pleased with her first medal at a world CHAMPIONSHIPS. They ended up two times as the fourth; four years ago on the Super G last Sunday on the descent. Her compatriot Federica Brignone came 0,18 second deficit for the podium.

Worley was four years ago at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in the Austrian Schladming also all the best on the giant slalom. They had won this world cup with the French team gold at the nations cup.

The 21-year-old Dutch Adriana Jelinkova finished 36th on to 7.48 second of Worley.
