WIN­TER SPORTS

The Washington Post Sunday - - WASHINTONPOST.COM/SPORTS -

Mikaela Shiffrin shook her head after a fi­nal run that fea­tured plenty of mis­takes fol­lowed by some re­mark­able re­cov­er­ies. She left the door open, she feared. Turns out, not so much. Not the way she’s rac­ing.

The Amer­i­can stand­out clinched her fourth slalom ti­tle in five sea­sons be­fore she took her first run and then capped an elec­tric day with the win at a World Cup race in Squaw Val­ley, Calif., on a warm day.

“I’m not proud of my ski­ing, I think it was very scrappy and I’m proud of the fight,” Shiffrin said.

Trail­ing go­ing into the fi­nal run, Shiffrin over­came some early slip-ups to turn in a com­bined time of 1:39.48.
