Kildow 4th, Stiegler 9th in Finland SL

From the US Ski Team

LEVI, Finland (March 10) - World Cup leader Janica Kostelic of Croatia moved closer to the World Cup overall title Friday night, winning a slalom by more than a second while Lindsey Kildow (Vail, CO) had the best World Cup slalom result of her career, finishing fourth with Resi Stiegler (Jackson Hole, WY), the only other American in the race, ninth.

Kostelic, who has 1,640 points with five races left, had the fastest time on each run for a total time of 1:37.52 in collecting her seventh victory this season. Defending overall champion Anja Paerson of Sweden, who faces knee surgery after the season, was second in 1:38.99 and is second overall with 1,366 heading into the final five races.

Kildow, eighth after the first run, produced the third-fastest final run and had a two-run clocking of 1:40.43. Stiegler, one of Kildow's Olympic teammates, was tied for sixth in the first run; she had a mistake on the upper part of the second course and finished in 1:41.50.

The women race another slalom Saturday before World Cup Finals next Wednesday through Sunday in Aare, Sweden, host of the 2007 World alpine Ski Championships. World Cup Finals are open to the top 25 skiers in each discipline plus Junior World Championships gold medalists. The U.S. Alpine Championships will be held March 25-30 at Sugarloaf USA in Maine.
