ADELBODEN, Switzerland (AP) Henrik Kristoffersen won another duel with Marcel Hirscher in a World Cup slalom on Sunday to extend his lead in the standings.

The Norwegian edged Austrian Hirscher by .06 seconds as they finished 1-2 for the fourth straight World Cup slalom this season.

Aleksander Khoroshilov of Russia, the first-run leader, was third, trailing .60 behind Kristoffersen's two-run time of 1 minute, 51.34 seconds.

The same three racers filled the podium places on Wednesday at Santa Caterina, Italy, where Hirscher got his only slalom win this season. Kristoffersen has three wins.

Hirscher extended his lead in the overall standings as he seeks a fifth straight title.

Fog shrouded the course and hid racers cresting the hill into the steep final section from the view of fans in the finish area.
