Mikaela Shiffrin sweeps at Squaw Valley, secures slalom title
Mikaela Shiffrin won her 31st career Audi FIS Ski World Cup race Saturday, winning the slalom at Squaw Valley.
Shiffrin also won her fourth career slalom crystal globe, after Slovenia's Veronika Velez Zuzulova skied out on the first run, becoming the first skier in history to win the World Championships slalom title and the World Cup overall slalom title in the same year for the third time.
The 31-time World Cup race victor could seal her first overall title in the Aspen women's downhill, which is scheduled for Wednesday (March 15). Wendy Holdener, of Switzerland, competes during the first run in the women's World Cup slalom competition Saturday, March 11, 2017, in Olympic Valley, Calif.
World champion Worley headed to California with a 120-point cushion over overall leader Shiffrin in the giant slalom standings but will have to finish the job in Aspen next week after only managing third place.
But for Shiffrin, the reality of becoming a fifth American to win the overall title is not something she is taking for granted just yet. Shiffrin wound up the morning session in second place, 0.02 seconds behind Holdener.
But in classic Shiffrin style, she shifted into overdrive and sneaked across the line to win by just 0.07 seconds. "I feel like I can go in and just try to enjoy the races a bit having secured the slalom globe and having such a big lead in the overall".
"I like hard races so I knew this hill with the steep start and the rollers at the bottom could be something for me". Stuhec has one top-10 World Cup finish this season in the two disciplines, while Shiffrin has 13. "Sometimes, that happens. Sometimes, you fall".
A total of 245 points separate the pair prior to the final race in Aspen in Colorado next Saturday (March 18). She was going for it. "It's really cool to have someone push me like that".
Shiffrin tied four other racers, including Vonn and Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proell, for the third most wins in a single season with 11.
Shiffrin rose to prominence in the slalom, capturing gold at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and three straight titles at the world championships.
Once the final event is over, Shiffrin plans to head to Hawaii with her family for some relaxation. It has been a true pleasure getting to work with her on the collection and we are excited to see where it leads to in the future.. Vreni Schneider of Switzerland has the most slalom titles among women with six.
Shiffrin began the day with a 660-515 lead over the Slovakian in the slalom points standings, but her fall left her with only one race next week, and a maximum 100 possible points, not enough to overtake Shiffrin.
How about this for a coincidence: Shiffrin's first World Cup podium was a third-place finish during a slalom race in Austria on December 29, 2011. "I can do it again".
