Mikaela Shiffrin’s pursuit of Lindsey Vonn’s women’s World Cup wins record was thwarted when she could only finish sixth in a giant slalom in Slovenia.
Shiffrin win streak over amid Vonn chase
Mikaela Shiffrin’s pursuit of Lindsey Vonn’s women’s World Cup wins record will go on for at least another day.
Shiffrin finished tied for sixth in a giant slalom at the Slovenian resort of Kranjska Gora on Saturday to end her winning streak at five races.
Shiffrin remains on 81 career wins — one victory away from Vonn’s mark of 82.
Valerie Grenier, of Canada, won the race by a comfortable margin for her first career victory by posting the fastest times in both runs.
