The Olympic champion edged fellow German Natalie Geisenberger - recently-crowned World Cup champion - to win the women's event, which was marred by warm temperatures, light rain and poor quality ice.

Anke Wischnewski was third.

“It is maybe my favourite track,” Hufner said after her win. “It has its character.”
