Vincent Kriechmayr of Austria has clinched the overall super-G title after racing at the Alpine Skiing World Cup finals in Lenzerheide was cancelled for a second consecutive day due to bad weather.
Organisers of the event at the Swiss venue called off the planned men's and women's super-G races today because of fog.
The cancellation handed Kriechmayr the super-G crystal globe without the reigning world champion having to take to the course.
Kriechmayr, who also won downhill gold at last month's World Championships, held a commanding 83-point lead over Switzerland's Marco Odermatt going into the final super-G of the season.
Lara Gut-Behrami of Switzerland had already wrapped up the women's super-G crystal globe prior to the campaign finale.
The downhill races were called off yesterday owing to adverse weather conditions.

The men's and women's overall titles are on the line this week and the latest cancellation boosts the respective chances of Frenchman Alexis Pinturault and Petra Vlhová of Slovakia.
Pinturault, the most successful men's World Cup skier without an overall title, leads Switzerland's Marco Odermatt by 31 points with two events remaining.
Vlhová, aiming to become the first Slovakian skier to claim an overall crystal globe, is 96 points clear of Gut-Behrami.
A team parallel event is scheduled to take place tomorrow.
