11 March, 2018, 01:18 | Author: Celia Hoffman
American ski queen Mikaela Shiffrin secured the World Cup slalom title for a fifth time after winning at Ofterschwang on Saturday.
The two-time Olympic gold medalist won the event with a time of 1:49.10 and claimed the slalom title for the second year in a row and fifth time since 2013, when she became the fourth-youngest woman to win a world cup title and the first American slalom world cup victor since 1983.
With a finish of 10th or better Saturday, Shiffrin will clinch the World Cup slalom season title, as well.
Shiffrin was a clear favorite to successfully defend her maiden overall title when she won the first five races of 2018. She turns 23 on Tuesday, one day before the World Cup Finals start in Are, Sweden.
Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, Colo.) won her fifth World Cup slalom title following her 42nd FIS Ski World Cup victory Saturday in Ofterschwang, Germany.
