ARE, Sweden (AP) – Overall champion Mikaela Shiffrin won her seventh slalom of the season at the World Cup finals on Saturday.
Holding on to a commanding first-run lead, the American won by a massive 1.58 seconds over Wendy Holdener of Switzerland. Olympic slalom champion Frida Hansdotter of Sweden was another 0.01 behind in third.
It was Shiffrin’s 32nd victory in the discipline and 43rd overall. She secured her fifth slalom season title and second straight overall championship last week.
Earlier, men’s overall champion Marcel Hirscher won the season-ending men’s giant slalom for his 58th career victory. The Austrian became only the third skier to win 13 races in a single World Cup season.
