KILLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — World champion Lara Gut-Behrami of Switzerland has won her first World Cup giant slalom in more than six years with a triumphant second run. Gut-Behrami was third in the opening run in Killington, Vermont, but improved to edge out Marta Bassino of Italy by just 0.07 seconds. Defending Olympic champion Sara Hector was third. The 31-year-old Gut-Behrami had not won a World Cup GS race since October 2016. American skier Mikaela Shiffrin finished 13th on home snow. There is a slalom scheduled for Sunday.
