American skier Mikaela Shiffrin has posted the fastest time in the opening run of a women’s World Cup slalom. She positioned herself for her 85th career victory. A win would move her within one of the World Cup record of 86 wins set by Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark in the 1980s. Shiffrin had shared the women’s record of 82 wins with former teammate Lindsey Vonn before triumphing at back-to-back giant slaloms in Italy this week. Shiffrin was 0.29 seconds faster than Lena Dürr and 0.46 faster than Petra Vlhová. The rest of the field was more than a second off the pace.
