No Medal For Wiberg

By Compiled From Wire Services

Pernilla Wiberg, the leading skier all season on the World Cup circuit, straddled a gate and went out in the first slalom run of the women’s combined - meaning she will still be without a medal after four of five women’s events in the world championships at Sestriere, Italy.

Her final chance will come in Saturday’s downhill - the final day of the championships - where she will not be among the favorites.

Italian Morena Gallizio was the leader after the first slalom in a time of 44.13 seconds with Marlies Oester of Switzerland second in 44.47. Third was for German Hilde Gerg in 45.31.

A memorial service is scheduled Monday for Angie Stevenson, a top cross-country ski racer and biathlete who died of what authorities say was a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Stevenson was found dead Feb. 7 at her home in Bend, Ore.
