Lindsey Vonn crashed out on the second run, leaving victory for Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany in a World Cup giant slalom in Flachau, Austria.

Vonn remained in second place in the overall standings, but leader Lara Gut of Switzerland pulled further ahead by finishing 19th. Gut leads Vonn by 50 points with a total of 750.

Vonn, a native Minnesotan who has won one giant slalom race this season, appeared to catch a rut with her right ski and crashed out close to the finish line.

Conditions were difficult. The second run began in sunshine, but heavy snow was falling by the time the top runners started, and all leaders had to deal with poor visibility.

Rebensburg trailed Ana Drev by .04 seconds after the first run but completed the two heats .94 seconds ahead of the Slovenian despite racing through heavy snow in the second run. Drev made the podium for the first time in her career.

Norwegians sweep the weekend

Henrik Kristoffersen won a World Cup slalom in Wengen, Switzerland, giving Norway a sweep of the three weekend events.

Aksel Lund Svindal won the downhill Saturday, and Kjetil Jansrud won a combined event Friday.

Kristoffersen's fourth win this season, all in slalom, was also a record 12th for Norway in a men's World Cup campaign. This one is still only 19 races old, and has two months and 24 scheduled races to go.

"I don't think it's a secret," Kristoffersen said. "The work that the individual athlete does makes the difference."
