Kostelić, Pietila-Holmner win slaloms

Croatia's Ivica Kostelić and Swede Maria Pietila-Holmner scored victories in the maiden parallel slalom here Sunday, an event reserved for the top 16 Alpine skiers in the World Cup.

Kostelić beat Frenchman Julien Lizeroux in the men's final, with Pietila-Holmner -- victorious in the slalom at Aspen in November -- comfortably vanquishing Tina Maze of Slovenia in the women's decider.

The event, which only counts toward the overall World Cup standings, gave a clear advantage to the most technical skiers in the field.

Furthermore, the one-on-one duals on a small hill adjacent to Munich's Olympic park had little impact on the World Cup hierarchy.

Kostelić dominated his final against Lizeroux, who lost his grip on the contest in the final stages, with American Bode Miller taking third place.

Austria's Elisabeth Goergl completed the podium in the women's event.
