Shiffrin wins her second World Cup slalom of the weekend.

On Sunday, American Mikaela Shiffrin won her second slalom of the weekend, giving her the 76th World Cup victory of her career.

In Levi, Finland, the 27-year-old won again, this time ahead of Switzerland’s Wendy Holdener (+0.28) and Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova (+0.68).

Shiffrin is now five wins behind Lindsey Vonn, who leads the women’s list of most World Cup race victories, and ten behind Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark for the overall record.

“I really didn’t expect today, even after the first run, everyone who is racing is so strong right now,” Shiffrin told reporters.

“It’s never perfect or easy, but in the moments that I needed to be, I was tough. I was a little bit nervous but I think that’s good. Every time I felt a heartbeat, I thought, push harder.”
