Norwegian Maria Therese Tviberg is the new World Champion in the Parallel discipline. The 28-year-old, who has never been on a World Cup podium before, beats Wendy Holdener in today's Final.

This is a dream come true. I’ve never had a individual medal before, and just to do that is amazing, and then a gold on top of that, you can hear my voice is shaking. I always have stuff to say and I am speechless. After I qualified for the final I cried the whole way up and when I came to the top I was still crying and my coach looked me in the eyes and said ‘breathe, you got this’. And I was like, ‘yeah, I got this’,” Tviberg said.

For Holdener it is her second silver medal of the Championships, after her second place in the Alpine Combined.

Thea Louise Stjernesund rounded off a superb 24 hours for Norway beating Courchevel's native Marie Lamure in the Small Final.


Alexander Schmid beats Austrian Dominik Raschner in the Parallel Giant Slalom Final. It is his best result in international competition – and Germany’s best since the 1989 World Championships, when Hans-Jorg Tauscher lifted the Men's Downhill title.

It means a lot – I didn’t expect it, and I am so happy to be here with a gold medal, it is just amazing,” said Schmid.

In the Small Final, 26-year-old Norwegian Timon Haugan defeated Austrian Adrian Pertl to record his career-best result.
