Shiffrin wins gi­ant slalom gold

Boston Herald - - NBA/NHL SCOREBOARD/RACING -

Amer­i­can Mikaela Shiffrin won gold in the women’s gi­ant slalom in her Pyeongchang Olympic de­but. She used a hard-charg­ing fi­nal run to win her sec­ond ca­reer Olympic gold medal.

The 22-year-old Amer­i­can stand­out trailed by 0.20 se­conds head­ing into the last run, but made up ground in no time by pow­er­ing through ruts that had de­vel­oped on the course.
