Germany's Gunda Kleeman set a world record in the women's 3,000 meters in a World Cup speedskating meet at Calgary, breaking the mark set by her long-time idol, Yvonne Van Gennip of the Netherlands. Kleeman's time of 4:10.80 was more than a second better than the mark of 4:11.94 set by Van Gennip, a triple gold medalist at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. Van Gennip finished third in 4:21.06, well behind second-place Heike Warnicke, also of Germany.

Rudolf Nierlich successfully defended his world title in the men's giant slalom Sunday at Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria, but the victory was clouded by a controversy over a missing International Ski Federation-approved seal on his racing suit. The decision was protested by four teams, and the suit was confiscated by officials, who said results could be overturned after tests. Nierlich held his title when first-run leader Alberto Tomba fell near the top of the course.
