Seven consecutive slalom wins! With today’s win in Zagreb, Mikaela Shiffrin is equaling her own record winning streak set in 2016. That says a lot about her current form in this discipline. The American superstar is building on her lead in this discipline and is now 100 points ahead of her main contender Petra Vlhova.
As in the other four slalom races this season, the second place goes to Petra Vlhova. The Slovakian athlete made the step to the very first spot of the podium for the first time both in the giant slalom (in Semmering) and in the city event (Oslo), but still couldn’t clinch a win in slalom this season.
In third place, Switzerland’s Wendy Holdener could celebrate a 19th World Cup podium in slalom. The Swiss multi talent, who is already a World Champion, a multiple Olympic medalist and a globe winner, is still waiting for her first slalom win.
Tomorrow the Snow Queen Trophy will crown the best male athlete, as the men will take over the hill on Sljeme and race a slalom starting at 12:15 and 15:30.
