The entire season of the Alpine World Cup in Eurosport and Player

In the World Cup 46 times in one competition – giant slalom – the Swede Ingemar Stenmark triumphed. In Austria, a 26-year-old American woman improved this achievement.

An excellent second pass

After the first ride, nothing announced that. Shiffrin was fifth and 0.42 seconds behind the leader Vlhova. However, the leader of the World Cup presented herself brilliantly in her second attempt and finally overtook the Slovakian by 0.15 seconds. The third place was taken by German Lena Duerr, who was almost a second behind the American.

In the previous six slaloms this season, Vlhova was the best five times, and once in second place. These results were enough for her to secure a Small Crystal Ball for her triumph in the classification of this competition. On the other hand, in the general classification of the World Cup, the defending Slovak loses 55 points to Shiffrin.

The competition in Schladming – the last one in the slalom ahead of the Beijing Olympics (February 4-20) – took place to replace the evening competition in Flachau, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
