ST. Dylan DeMelo Jersey . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Tina Weirather owes her immense skiing talent to her parents, who were both Alpine world champions. Only fitting then that the Liechtenstein racer should deliver a perfect birthday present to her mother, two-time Olympic gold medallist Hanni Wenzel. Weirather won a World Cup super-G race in St. Moritz on Saturday on her mothers 57th birthday -- and at the same resort where Wenzel became the slalom world champion in 1974. Weirather timed 1 minute, 17.38 seconds to finally climb atop the podium after finishing runner-up three times already this season. Kajsa Kling of Sweden was second, 0.31 seconds back, and Anna Fenninger of Austria trailed by 0.39 in third. Mother and daughter shared a celebratory hug in the finish area after the victory on a near-perfect still, sunny day in the Swiss Alps. "I had a parcel for her but this first place will be a bigger present," Weirather said at her winners news conference. Weirathers flair for speed certainly follows her father, Harti Weirather, who won downhill gold at the 1982 World Championships staged at Schladming in his native Austria. St. Moritz seems like the familys favourite place though, after Wenzels slalom gold and combined silver here when the 1974 worlds were held at the high-end resort just 120 kilometres (75 miles) from the border with tiny Liechtenstein. "I think its an awesome story because she was world champion," the 24-year-old Weirather said. "Now shes here and its her birthday." Weirather has podium finishes in three disciplines this season, suggesting she can challenge for the overall World Cup title her mother won in 1978 and 80. Weirather earned 100 race points Saturday and moved up to second overall, trailing 37 behind Lara Gut of Switzerland. Gut was the pre-race favourite on a course where she earned her first World Cup win as a precocious 17-year-old in 2008, but placed seventh, 1.12 back. Gut also retained her lead in the super-G standings. Lindsey Vonn of the United States, who won this race last year, skipped the St. Moritz meet which concludes with a giant slalom on Sunday. Vonn has chosen a lighter World Cup schedule to manage a knee injury before the Sochi Olympics. Kling almost spoiled the family party, continuing her breakthrough season at age 24. She never had a top-10 finish in a World Cup race before the downhill last Saturday at Lake Louise, Canada, and now has three in eight days. "Ive been working a lot with the physical training and mentally, because Im really nervous and now Ive learned to handle it at the start," Kling said. After a stellar 2013 season, the U.S. team is still seeking a first podium finish after six speed races in this World Cup campaign. Stacey Cook was best-placed in 16th, 1.74 behind, and Julia Mancuso was 20th, 1.92 back. Weirathers second career World Cup victory was also her second in super-G. She won in March at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. She still has a long way to go to equal her mothers 33 World Cup wins, eighth on the all-time list. Wenzels Olympic record will also take some catching: Four medals including slalom and giant slalom golds at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics. It is still early in the Sochi Olympic season, but Weirather is pointed in the right direction. Brent Burns Jersey . JOHNS, N. Jannik Hansen Jersey . 1 player in the world.

In a text message on Monday, Collaros told TSNs Matthew Scianitti that he "feels good" and hopes to resume throwing in pads Tuesday "if cleared." Collaros has been out since he suffered a head injury against the Edmonton Esskimos on July 4. San Jose Sharks Jerseys. While he may work out in pads on Tuesday, it is unlikely he would be behind centre for Saturdays home game against the Calgary Stampeders. Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin and the staff have insisted they want to give Collaros more than a week of prep time before he makes his first start since Week 2.
