More winter sports as we move to France now for the Women's Alpine Skiing World Cup which continued in Courchevel. But it would not continue for too long as windy conditions would eventually lead to an early stoppage in the giant slalom as it simply became too dangerous on the slopes.  

The wind is so bad that some skiiers would need leashes to stay on the mountain. Get back here you.

This is the home favourite Tessa Worley starting her run. The Frenchwoman began the day at the top of the standings for the giant slalom, but perhaps she has a bit of trouble with the wind as she is unable to replicate the form that took her to the top, and she finsihes in a time of 1 minute, 1.07 seconds which is only good enough for fourth place at this point.

Another big name on the circuit is Italian Sofia Goggia who starts the day in ninth, 55 points behind the top ranked Worley. She finishes in a time of one minute, 0.3 seconds which is good enough for her to leap frog the others into first place. 

Ten skiiers would descend after Goggia, but none of them could overtake her. Just after the 19th skier completes her run, the competition has to be stopped due to heavy winds that made it too dangerous.
