Julie Zogg won for a third successive year in Lake Bannoye as the season-opening International Ski Federation (FIS) Snowboard World Cup continued with the parallel slalom discipline.

Zogg's victory continued her impressive World Cup record in Russia, with four of her eight wins at that level coming in the country.

The Swiss snowboarder triumphed in the big final against 18-year-old Japanese snowboarder Tsubaki Miki, whose second-place finish secured her a first World Cup podium.

In the small final, Russia’s Anastasiia Kurochkina was victorious defeating Ramona Theresa Hofmeister of Germany, who also finished second in the parallel giant slalom yesterday.

In the men’s parallel slalom, Austria’s Andreas Prommegger won the big final, after defeating yesterday’s parallel giant slalom winner Sangho Lee of South Korea.

Prommegger only just reached the big final, as he beat compatriot Arvid Auner by one-hundredth of a second in the semi-final to secure his place in the showpiece race.

The small final was an all Austrian affair with Auner beating Fabian Obmann to secure third place - the second time Auner had reached a World Cup podium.

The FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup circuit is scheduled to now move on to Italy, with races due to take place in Carezza on December 16, followed by Cortina D’Ampezzo two days later.
