Women’s Alpine Skiing Slalom – USA’s Mikaela Shiffrin Wins!

Women’s Slalom, held today in Are, Sweden, saw USA’s Mikaela Shiffrin taking the win after the two runs were completed. Shiffrin made 2nd best in run 1 and recorded the fastest slalom in run 2 for an aggregated time of 1:45:36, 0:29 seconds better than local skier Frida Hansdotter that had the best time after run 1.

Alpine Skiing – ‘The Slalom’

Slovenian Tina Maze had another consistent performance and ensured 3rd place (0:52 seconds behind ). She now has 9 podium finishes in 14 Alpine Skiing events held till now.

Alpine Skiing – What are its origins and in what it consists?

This result allowed Maze to extend even further her alpine skiing overall World Cup lead to a 387 points advantage over Maria Hoefl-Riesch (Germany) that finished today’s slalom in 11th place. If she keeps this consistency  in the rest of the season, and apart from any possible injury, the Alpine Skiing World Cup Title seems to be nothing but a mirage to all other competitors.

The same seems to happens in what respects the Giant Slalom World Cup Standings.
