Zettel wins World Cup giant slalom

Kathrin Zettel won the season-opening women's World Cup giant slalom Saturday after posting the fastest time in the second leg.
The 22-year-old Austrian finished in a combined time of 2 minutes, 22.99 seconds to beat Tanja Poutiainen of Finland, who led after the first run, by 0.98 seconds.
It was Zettel's fourth World Cup victory, and the first time since 2002 that an Austrian racer won the traditional opening race on the Rettenbach course.
Andrea Fischbacher was third, 1.48 seconds behind, and giant slalom champion Denise Karbon was fourth, trailing Zettel by 1.51.
Defending overall World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn was ninth, Chemmy Alcott equaled Zettel's second-run time to finish 10th, and Olympic giant slalom champion Julia Mancuso was 17th place.
