Borssen wins World Cup slalom

Therese Borssen claimed her first World Cup victory Friday with a combined time of 1 minute, 55.15 seconds in a women's slalom.
The 22-year-old Swede was second after the first run.
Austria's Marlies Schild held a commanding lead after the first run and looked set for her fourth consecutive slalom victory, but lost control of a ski just before the finish of her second run. Schild came in third, 0.42 seconds behind Borssen.
Kathrin Zettel, who won Thursday's giant slalom, finished second, trailing Borssen by 0.25.
Lindsey Kildow of the United States lost control halfway through her second run and did not finish. All other American skiers failed to qualify for the evening run.
Schild goes into 2007 on top of the overall World Cup standings. She recaptured the lead she lost Thursday to her compatriot Nicole Hosp, who did not finish in her first run Friday.
