Mikaela Shiffrin Wins Last World Cup Slalom

Mikaela Shiffrin won a career-best seventh slalom of the season on Saturday in impressive fashion, leading the field by over 1.5 seconds, at the Audi FIS World Cup Finals in Åre, Sweden. It was the American's fourth slalom victory –the most among women – at the Swedish resort that will host the 2019 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. She also finished the day by collecting her fifth slalom crystal globe that was mathematically secured in Ofterschwang last week.
Wendy Holdener of Switzerland attacked the second run to move from fifth after the first run into the runner-up position for the race and also the discipline standings. Frida Hansdotter of Sweden finished third on the day and also moved onto the standings podium in third place, much to the delight of local fans.
