Huefner's two-race time of 1 minute 27.075 seconds beat German team-mate Anke Wischnewski into second place by 0.84 seconds - giving Germany an extraordinary 102nd-straight World Cup victory, and Huefner a 25th World Cup gold.

Canada's Alex Gough completed the podium, a further 0.187 seconds back, and reigning world champion Erin Hamlin of the USA could only manage a 10th-placed finish after an error-strewn first run.
