Tommy Ford captures slalom title at U.S. skiing championships

WINTER PARK, Colo. (AP) -- Tommy Ford used a strong second run on sun-baked snow to capture the slalom title in a tight race at the U.S. championships.

Ford, who was third after the opening pass, finished in a combined time of 1 minute, 32.20 seconds on Thursday, holding off Leif Kristian Haugen of Norway by 0.01 seconds. Michael Ankeny was third.

The 22-year-old Ford shines on this stage as he captured his seventh national crown.

Three-time World Cup giant slalom champion Ted Ligety went wide on a turn in his first run and was out of the race.

This was the last competition for Jimmy Cochran, who plans to retire after nine seasons with the U.S. ski team. Leading after the first run, Cochran hooked a tip on a gate and didn't finish.
