Alcott goes out a winner

Chemmy Alcott won her final Super G title before retirement as she finished top of the podium at the British National Championships.

Four-time Olympian Alcott will give up competition after the championships, keen for a rest after battling back from a broken leg she sustained last summer.

Further leg trouble did not prevent her landing the Super G title in Meribel, France in a time of one minute and 23.91 seconds, well ahead of Cara Brown, who took second in 1min 26.01secs, and third-placed Honor Clissold (1:27.91).

Alcott said: "I just wanted to come through the finish line with a smile on my face. The last few weeks have been tough with my leg, I am not in my best shape of the year, but I would have been disappointed if I didn't win.

"It was really, really great to win and on what was a tough course."

Alcott's fiance Dougie Crawford won the men's Super G national title in 1:19.20.
