GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany — Tina Maze of Slovenia broke the record for points in a World Cup season on Saturday by winning a downhill, which also made her only the third woman to win a race in all five disciplines in a single campaign.

Maze secured the overall World Cup title one week ago and her ninth win of the season took her to 2,024 points in the overall standings. Austrian great Hermann Maier held the previous record of 2,000 points on the men's side.

With 20 podium finishes this season, Maze is second on the all-time list with Phil Mahre of the United States, who did it in 1981-82. Maier holds the record with 22 podium finishes in the 1999-2000 season.

Laurenne Ross of the United States was second and Maria-Hoefl Riesch of Germany took third.
