Run 1 of Women’s Slalom, held today in Zagreb, Croatia, just finished a few minutes ago.
North-American Teenager Mikaela Shiffrin (she will turn 18 only next March 13th) was faster recording 59:26 seconds. Shiffrin who won the slalom event in Are, Sweden – the 1st of her career – is therefore in a great position to clinch another win. She already had another podium finish before that: last November 10th in Levi (Finland) slalom’s 3rd place. Shiffrin is currently 4th in the Slalom World Cup Standings after a ‘did not finished’ in Run 2 of last Semmering’s Slalom (Austria).
Slovenian Tina Maze both Slalom World Cup and Alpine Skiing Overall World Cup leader took 2nd place just 0:35 seconds behind.
3rd place went to Maria Pietilae-Holmner of Sweden – currently 6th in Slalom World Cup Standings – 0:72 seconds slower than Shiffrin.
The 2nd and decisive run will be held today at 18:30 CET.
