Nef clinches giant slalom title

Switzerland's Sonja Nef clinched the World Cup giant slalom title on Sunday when she won the seventh race of the season. Nef's victory at Cortina d'Ampezzo in Italy gave her an unassailable 235-point lead in the standings over last year's champion Michaela Dorfmeister.

She has 576 points to the Austrian's 341 with two races remaining and only 200 points at stake.

Nef became the second woman to clinch a World Cup discipline title at Cortina over the past week. Croatia's Janica Kostelic was crowned slalom champion on Friday when World Cup organisers decided not to reschedule a cancelled race that would have given her rivals a chance to catch her.

The downhill and super-G titles have yet to be decided.
