Double triumph for Swiss skiers in Sölden

Swiss skiers Daniel Albrecht and Didier Cuche have taken the two top spots at the season's opening event in Sölden in Austria.

Albrecht won the World Cup giant slalom in 2:15,78, 0.14 seconds ahead of speed specialist Cuche.

The Swiss duo crushed their opponents. American Ted Ligerty was third, 1.25
seconds behind Albrecht.

In the Women's World Cup Giant Slalom on Saturday, Switzerland's young hope Lara Gut came 5th place. She was only six hundredths of a second from gaining a podium place.

"I knew I'd be able to get into the top 30," the 17-year-old said. "And now I know I'm capable of a top ten. That's cool".
