Two New Zealand athletes, Nicola Campbell and Michael Ross, triumphed at this week's FIS Series races at Cardrona beating a strong field of international competitors.



Sixteen-year-old Campbell from Dunedin trains with Wanaka Ski Racing Academy and is New Zealand's highest ranked female slalom skier. Her convincing win's in today's and yesterday's giant slaloms, together with a fourth in Sunday's slalom sealed her victory as overall women's champion ahead of fellow national team members Erika McLeod and Alana Gould.



Wanaka's Michael Ross, who also trains with the Wanaka Ski Racing Academy, beat off stiff competition from David Lamb and Roger Brown of the USA, both of whom are ranked higher than him in FIS world rankings. Two second places (slalom and GS) and a third (GS) was enough to secure him the position of first overall.



The two Wanaka skiers' victories will mean an improvement in their world rankings and a strong standing at next week's New Zealand nationals in Queenstown.
