LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland (AP) -- Anna Fenninger of Austria clinched her first overall World Cup title on Thursday by placing second in a super-G won by Lara Gut of Switzerland.

Fenninger built a 215-point lead over Gut with two races remaining this weekend and cannot be caught.

Fenninger's path to the title was eased when her closest challenger, Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany, sustained season-ending injuries after crashing in the downhill on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old Fenninger adds Alpine skiing's Crystal Globe to the Olympic gold medal in super-G and silver in giant slalom she won in Sochi last month.

Gut won for the second straight day to clinch the season-long super-G title.
