Shiffrin ties Stenmark record with win in women's slalom

Shiffrin은 월드컵 슬라롬에서 그녀의 46번째 우승으로 그녀의 주요 라이벌인 Petra Vlhova를 꺾었습니다.. 단일 종목에서 월드컵 최다 우승 기록을 세운 32세 기록과 맞먹는다., set by Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark in giant slalom.

The 26-year-old Shiffrin was in tears after her 71st World Cup victory was confirmed.

Getting to the finish knowing I put everything I could into it, that’s always a special feeling,” said Shiffrin, who has endured two difficult years which included the loss of her grandmother in October 2019 and the death of her father less than four months later.

I’ve had a lot of incredible memories at this race over the years, and I’ve shared it with family and all the people I love, the people who I love the most in the world. 그리고 올해, two of them are not here anymore. So it’s emotional, it’s one of the more emotional ones for sure.

While Shiffrin hails from Vail, 콜로라도, she can almost consider Killington a hometown race as she honed her skills nearby at the Burke Mountain Academy as a teenager.

Shiffrin trailed Vlhova by .20 seconds after the first run and, although she made an error at the top of her second run, a fantastic finish ensured she was still fastest on that second run.

Shiffrin lifted her arms over her head to soak in the cheers of the passionate home crowd before cupping her hand to her ear as she beamed broadly.

Then she turned to watch her rival.

Vlhova also made a mistake, and that cost her even more dearly than Shiffrin’s. The overall champion was almost a second slower than Shiffrin on the second run to ultimately finish .75 behind in second place.

Shiffrin had won all four previous World Cup slalom races in Killington. Last year’s event was canceled because of the pandemic.

Wendy Holdener of Switzerland finished third, .83 behind Shiffrin.

Shiffrin moved 20 points ahead of Vlhova at the top of the overall World Cup standings.

I hope everyone enjoyed watching (the race) because that’s the most show that we have,” Shiffrin said about her battle with Vlhova. “It takes someone who is not only able to do the work and to ski that way, but really does it, and takes care of the fine details.

She and her team, they have what they need and they’re pushing the limits, and we’re trying to do the sameevery race is an enormous test and it’s very nerve-racking as well.

Shiffrin won the season-opening giant slalom in Sölden, 오스트리아, but finished second to Vlhova in both slalom races in Levi, 핀란드, 지난주.
