Anna Fenninger of Austria took victory in a World Cup giant slalom in Ofterschwang on Saturday.

Fenninger went fastest in the first run and held on to her advantage to beat Tina Maze of Slovenia by 0.44 seconds.

The 23-year-old continued her strong finish to the season following her super-G victory in Garmisch-Partenkirchen last weekend.

"It's a good feeling to be able to switch so well from one speciality to the other and from hard to softer snow," she said.

"It gives me a lot of confidence for the finals next week in Switzerland and also for the coming seasons. I know that I still have more in me."

Viktoria Rebensburg, looking for a third victory in succession on home snow, claimed third place.

Maze, who has already won the giant slalom title, finished on the podium for a record eighth time in one season.

"I'm very proud of my great results and the records I have set this winter," said Maze. "Yet it's not over, and I'm looking forward to another exciting day tomorrow in the slalom."

Her remarkable year now sees her with more than double the points of her nearest rival, Maria Hoefl-Riesch, in the overall standings.
