Mikaela Shiffrin wins 2nd straight World Cup overall title

Mikaela Shiffrin

Mikaela Shiffrin rebounded from missing the Olympic slalom podium to clinch her fifth World Cup slalom season title with her 42nd career World Cup victory, most for any racer before turning 23 years old.

The American's only remaining challenger, Petra Vlhova, needs a win or second place to maintain a slim chance of overtaking Shiffrin in the slalom standings but the Slovak skier was 0.65 behind in sixth.

Ultimately, she did not even need that as Wendy Holdener, the only woman who could have pushed the battle to another race, finished down in 14th. "The best thing for me now is to have the crystal globe already locked in.

I can really just enjoy the last races and not have to fight for points to win the globe".

Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel won the race, and Viktoria Rebensburg was second on home snow.

Mikaela Shiffrin, world champion once again.

The World Cup continues on Saturday with a slalom in Ofterschwang, followed by one race each of every discipline at the World Cup Finals in Are, Sweden.

The two-time Olympian is now the second American female skier to win multiple overall titles behind Lindsey Vonn, who has reached that mark four times.

Holdener finished 14th today, however, to leave Shiffrin with an insurmountable 603 point lead.

"I had goals for the slalom and GS globes, the overall globe, Olympic medals", Shiffrin said Friday.

Shiffrin sits second, on 657, and Rebensburg third on 607.
