Sofia Nadyrshina won a second successive International Ski Federation (FIS) Snowboard World Cup leg in Bad Gastein, while Aaron March won the men's parallel slalom contest.

Russian Nadyrshina was victorious across the border in Scuol in Switzerland last week in the parallel giant slalom, and beat German athletes in three of her four races in Austria today over a slalom course.

Cheyenne Loch was seen off in the final, Olympic parallel giant slalom silver medallist Selina Jörg in the semi-finals, and Melanie Hochreiter in the last 16.

Jörg finished third, defeating world champion Julie Zogg of Switzerland in the small final.

Nadyrshina now has 274 points to lead the overall parallel World Cup standings, with German Ramona Theresia Hofmeister - who suffered a first-round exit - on 264.

In the men's contest, March beat Russian world champion Dmitry Loginov in the final, with the Russian falling.

Austria's Andreas Prommegger edged out another Russian, Igor Sluev, to claim third place.

Prommegger has a one-point lead over compatriot Benjamin Karl in the parallel World Cup standings.

Bad Gastein is due to stage a team event tomorrow.
