Ireland’s Kirsty McGarry finished 50th in the women's giant slalom at a foggy Whistler Creekside this evening.

McGarry was 55th of the 85-strong original field heading into this evening’s action and clocked one minute, 24.28 seconds for a final combined time of 2mins, 45.20secs.

Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg sprang a surprise by taking gold.

Rebensburg, 20, was lying sixth after the first run but grabbed the lead after completing her second run in one minute, 11.64 seconds for a combined time of 2:27.11.

Slovenia's Tina Maze bagged another silver medal to add to her earlier one in the Super-G. She was 0.12 seconds behind after a second run of 1:11.76.

Elisabeth Goergl of Austria, leading after the first run, had to settle for another bronze to match the one she won in the downhill after a second run of 1:12.13 gave her a combined time of 2:27.25.

Defending champion Julia Mancuso skied a quick second run - 1:11.24 - but had too much ground to make up after her first run and was back in eighth place.
