Alpine Skiing - Marchand-Arvier fastest in second Val d'Isere training run

Marie Marchand-Arvier topped the second training run for the women's World Cup race weekend at Val d'Isere by just 0.01s from Tina Weirather.

Frenchwoman Marchand-Arvier, who was 10th in the first run on Wednesday, clocked a time of 1:51.45 to lead the way from Liechtensteiner Weirather.

German Maria Hofl-Riesch was third ahead of Slovenia's Ilka Stuhec.

American Lindsey Vonn, who already has four race wins to her name this season - a treble at Lake Louise and the super-G at Saint Moritz - was dead last in 48th, seven seconds off the pace, after an uncharacteristic error at Meadows.
