ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (AP) - World champion Tessa Worley of France won a World Cup giant slalom on Sunday, racing to the fastest time in both runs.

Overall standings leader Lara Gut of Switzerland and Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States were among expected contenders who did not complete the first run. Both slid out on the aggressive snow surface.

Worley sped down in a combined time of 2 minutes, 7.62 seconds to deny Jessica Lindell-Vikarby of Sweden a second straight GS victory by 0.37 seconds.

Tina Maze of Slovenia, the defending overall World Cup champion, matched her best result of the season in third, trailing Worley by 0.79.

Worley got her eighth career World Cup win, all in giant slalom.

Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein, who won Saturday's super-G, also skied out in the morning.
