Prommegger, Kummer defend parallel overall titles
SIERRA NEVADA, Spain -- Andreas Prommegger and Patrizia Kummer clinched their second straight snowboard World Cup overall titles in parallel Wednesday after poor weather forced organizers to cancel the final race.
Prommegger of Austria ended the season with 5,060 points, leaving Roland Fischnaller of Italy runner-up for a second time with 4,480 points.
Rain, wind and fog in southern Spain caused practice on Tuesday to be called off, and organizers cancelled the parallel giant slalom on Wednesday after several delays.
Kummer of Switzerland ended the season with 4,170 points, leading Marion Kreiner of Austria at 3,862.
