Shiffrin gets 7th straight slalom win
In the rhythmic style of a dancer, Mikaela Shiffrin approached yet another record on Saturday.
The American skier dominated the first women’s World Cup slalom of 2019 to match her personal best winning streak in the discipline with seven straight victories.
Rivals were awed by her opening run, a flawless attack that gave her a lead of more than a second for the final run, while Shiffrin felt a familiar groove.
“When I am skiing my best, it feels something like a dance,” she said. “The rhythm is really something that I can feel helps me ski faster in every turn. There were a lot of turns that felt like this dance.”
