In Garmisch-Partenkirchen, West Germany, Helmut Hoeflehner of Austria won a men's World Cup downhill race, with Switzerland's Peter Mueller second and Austria's Anton Steiner third . . .

Meanwhile, Austrian-born Marc Girardelli, who has won six World Cup slaloms this season and leads the standings with 190 points, has applied for Luxembourg citizenship in a last-ditch attempt to compete in the world championships starting next week in Bormio, Italy, his father said.

But officials of the International Ski Federation (FIS) said Girardelli would not be eligible for the championships unless he produces a Luxembourg passport by Monday.

Girardelli, 21, began skiing for Luxembourg when he was 13, after his father had disputes with Austrian team officials. He still has Austrian citizenship and travels on an Austrian passport . . .

In Arosa, Switzerland, West Germany's Marina Kiehl won a women's World Cup super-giant slalom, a race that was substituted for a downhill event canceled by bad weather. Kiehl beat Eva Twardokens of the United States by .34 seconds . . .

In Seefeld, Austria, Grete Nykkelmo led a Norwegian sweep in the women's 20-kilometer race at the World Nordic Championships. The silver medal went to Britt Pettersen and the bronze to Anette Boe . . .
