ALTENMARKT-ZAUCHENSEE, Austria (AP) — Marie-Michele Gagnon of Canada won a women's World Cup super-combined event Sunday for her maiden victory.

It was the first win for a Canadian woman in a combined event at World Cup level since 1984.

Gagnon was 1.37 seconds off the lead after the super-G portion earlier Sunday but posted the second fastest time in the slalom run to finish in an aggregate 2 minutes, 5.55 seconds.

Michaela Kirchgasser of Austria came 0.32 back in second, and Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany trailed by 0.39 in third.

Nicole Hosp of Austria, who led the competition after the super-G, finished fourth.

Hoefl-Riesch regained the lead in the overall standings over Austria's Anna Fenninger, who finished eighth.
