PARK CITY, Utah — Nathalie Bouvier of France won a World Cup women's giant slalom Friday after a jury overruled a protest that claimed she had missed a gate on her first run.
The jury talked with the gatekeeper and reviewed the videotape, then declared Bouvier the leader over Diann Roffe of the United States with a time of 1 minutes 8.37 seconds.
Roffe, 22, giant slalom gold medalist in the 1985 World Championships, finished her first run on the artificial surface in 1:09.06 as light snow fell.
In the second run, Bouvier was timed in 1:07.60 for a total of 2:15.97. Roffe's 1:08.14 gave her a total of 2:17.20, placing her ahead of Austria's Anita Wachter, who was third in 2:17.51.
