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.
