Olympic champion Shiffrin seals second World Cup globe

Share

Just weeks after the 2018 Winter Olympics, Mikaela Shiffrin secured her second straight overall World Cup title at a giant slalom race on Friday in Ofterschwang, Germany.

Austrian legend Annemarie Moser-Proell won her 41st race at age 21, then took a whole season off to care for her father before he died of lung cancer in 1976.

"That's really exciting, for sure". "To have the overall locked in now before going to Are is pretty cool".

Switzerland's Wendy Holdener had been the only skier with a mathematical chance of catching Shiffrin in the overall stakes if she finished in the top two.

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.

She joins Lindsey Vonn as the only American women to win multiple World Cup titles. Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway, the Olympic silver medalist, won the race. Her last race was at age 26.

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's 603-point lead over Holdener is now insurmountable.

But the largest globe is now hers heading in Are.
