    Margin of over a second. Unreal.

    Shiffrin had the fastest time in both runs, winning by 1.09 seconds over Slovakian Veronika Velez Zuzulova. Swiss Wendy Holdener was third.

    However, her lead was cut to .07 at a split midway through her second run. She stormed through the final gates to win comfortably.

    Shiffrin is now one win shy of the women’s record for consecutive World Cup wins in any discipline. Swiss Vreni Schneider won 12 straight slaloms from 1988-90. Shiffrin can match it in the next slalom Dec. 29 in Semmering, Austria.

    Shiffrin has said her streak shouldn’t really count, since she missed five straight slaloms last season due to injury.

    What blows me away most about Mikaela this year is that she scored and 18th and a 13th in DOWNHILL at Lake Louise last week. In her 1st World Cup downhills. On a glider's course. Holy shit! Without injury, I forecast that she will win the overall this year. Didn't know she was even going to ski speed this year. Not like she's been training for it...Good luck Mikaela!

    Actually, she's been training hard at the speed events. She's been training very little at the technical events and is mostly relying on her existing skill at those.

    Thanks for the beta...looks like her speed training is paying off without sacrificing her tech skills, eh?

    Her MO, she always puts the hammer down on the last 1/3 of the course. She is truly amazing. Her slalom is flawless.

    That is the ridiculous part about this last win. It is one thing to built up a 1+ second margin over two runs. However, to put up all of that time in the last half of a course just by saying to herself, "ok, time to ski fast". .

    It makes you realize how she is capable of pulling off a winning margin of over 3 seconds.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Reminds me of Ligety back after the first year of the ski regulation change. He was the only one that had figured out how to make the big 35m GS boards turn. It was obvious in the video and even more obvious in the time. I recall he had a couple huge victory margins (2+ seconds I think)

    Uncut vid of both runs for anyone who's interested





    To say she knifed the bottom half of the second run is probably an understatement...

    Fuck. Picking up a second in 1/2 a run in WC slalom.

    Is that 11 slalom wins in a row?

    BTW, for those on Facebook, she is one of the best "stars" to like. She posts the info on each race and how to watch it, and for that alone it is worth it. She also seems like a very real down to earth person, and occasionally posts interesting stuff about her training.

    She's super real, maybe because she still lives at home in Eagle-Vail. Normal house, normal people. We see her training or at the store or out to eat quite a bit.

    Great to see. Her previous GS result made it look uncertain she'd be fighting for the podium in GS as well as SL for this season at least.

    Crazy! She just crushes...watching the first GS race now.

    Great to see Anna Veith back in the action after her knee injury. Also she missed a gate at the end but we have been loving Sofia Goggia this year. Love her style on the hill and she has an Aussie. Fkna!

    Barring injury, she probably will.

    And she wins that too. 3 wins in 3 days is amazing.

    am I missing something? Looking at live streaming results, it doesn't look like she has taken her second run. Granted she's in the lead after run 1 and favored to win, but it doesn't look like she has yet.
