Tina Maze’s Super G victory on Sunday cemented her grip on the overall title. The result also made history for the Slovenian, who became the sixth woman ever to win all five World Cup alpine racing disciplines.

Maze has been close to Super G wins in the past, so the victory on a tough St. Anton course in Austria wasn’t a surprise.

Maze also impressed in Saturday’s Downhill, finishing fourth in a race won by an American. Normally, that American would be Vonn, but the defending overall champ looked rusty on her first day back after some health rehab and settled for sixth. Instead, the U.S. Ski Team reveled in a first-time World Cup win for Alice McKennis of Colorado. Read more.

Here’s where to find full results for the weekend’s races as well as the latest results in the overall standings.
