World Cup victory #43 for Shiffrin


The season’s final slalom race saw another extra-terrestrial performance by Mikaela Shiffrin, the ski prodigy who turned 23 earlier this week. She had already secured the slalom World Cup globe as well as her second consecutive overall World Cup title before the race.

Leading after the first run, Shiffrin won the race by 1.58 seconds. It was her 7thslalom win this season. Switzerland’s Wendy Holdener improved from 3rdin the first run to finish 2ndwhich also meant that she finished second in the season slalom rankings. Behind Holdener, who totalled 705 points, it was a tight race between the slalom Olympic champion Frida Hansdotter of Sweden and Petra Vhlova of Slovakia for the third slalom rank. Eventually it was Hansdotter’s third place finish on Saturday that secured her the place on the season podium with 681 points against Vhlova’s 679.

Åre is special to Mikaela as she took her career’s first World Cup win here, in December 2012. Another 42 have now followed as the young star continues to set records on a weekly basis.

The home course in Åre has also been good for Frida Hansdotter who scored her 4thpodium here, boding well for the World Championships next year. It was Frida’s 8thback-to-back slalom podium, including her gold medal performance at the PyeongChang 2018 Games. The good Swedish team effort resulted in a 9thplace finish for Anna Swenn Larsson and a 13thplace for Estelle Alphand.

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46 CETPressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
