Mikaela Shiffrin rebounds from Olympics, wins World Cup slalom title

A day after locking up her second straight World Cup overall championship, the American secured her fifth season title in the slalom.

But as the world knows by now, Shiffrin does more than just the minimum.

Since 2014, Shiffrin has raced in more than world championship and world cup slalom competitions and she recently competed in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeonchang.

Shiffrin notched her 11th win this season, matching her total from last season, and in her last possible race broke the record for most wins before turning 23.

Shiffrin, who is the Olympic champion in giant slalom, has yet to start her final run.

Holdener has never won a World Cup slalom but does have 16 podium finishes, including 12 in races won by Shiffrin.

Shiffrin's second run, though slightly slower at 54.85 seconds, was still enough to seal her victory. Holdener finished second in slalom, followed by Sweden's Frida Hansdotter.

Shiffrin formally won the discipline title as soon as the only remaining challenger, Petra Vlhova, failed to get the top-two result which the Slovakian skier needed in the penultimate event of the season. Lindsey Vonn, who did not race this weekend but will be in Are, holds the record of 81 wins. "My biggest challenge this year has not been the Olympics, or the (World Cup) overall or any of that, but getting motivated for these last races". It was the Norwegian's first career win.
