Kristoffersen wins World Cup slalom, completes Norway sweep

WENGEN, Switzerland (AP) — Henrik Kristoffersen has raced through steady falling snow to win a World Cup slalom. His win gives Norway a three-race weekend sweep at storied Swiss venue Wengen. For the third straight day in three different disciplines a Norwegian won with a home Swiss racer runner-up. Kristoffersen finished 0.20 seconds ahead of first-run leader Loïc Meillard. He was denied giving Switzerland a first win in its classic World Cup slalom for 36 years. Lucas Braathen was third. Kristoffersen’s 30th career World Cup win lifted him back into the lead over Braathen in the season-long slalom standings.
