(Lienz) Ski queen Mikaela Shiffrin signed her second success in two days on Friday by winning the Lienz slalom in Austria in style, her 93rd World Cup victory.

Like Thursday on a giant scale, the American, five-time winner of the big crystal globe, folded the race in the first round, relegating her competitors to more than a second.

At the end of a second round carried out in complete control and control, Shiffrin finally crossed the line 2 seconds 34 ahead, a world, over the German Lena Dürr in second. The Swiss Michelle Gisin completes the podium (2 sec 45).

At 28, the best skier in history with a record number of World Cup victories ends 2023 with a 93rd success on the world circuit. This is also his 56th world victory in slalom, his favorite discipline.

After her demonstrations in Lienz on Thursday and Friday, nothing seems able to stop the American who already has five victories this winter.

“I felt so good on the skis,” responded Shiffrin after the slalom on Friday, adding that she finally felt really in shape after a start to the season where she crushed the competition less.

As a giant, she signed her first victory of the winter on Thursday after three third places in the discipline. And in slalom, she often had to battle to the end with Petra Vlhova in great form, who beat her twice on the stakes this season.

But the Slovak, impressive last week in Courchevel where she managed to get the better of Shiffrin, seemed much diminished in Lienz where she had to settle for a seventh place on Thursday and a fifth place on Friday.

Now with 900 points, Mikaela Shiffrin ends 2023 well ahead of the general ranking, far ahead of Italian Federica Brignone (637 points).

If she wins the big crystal globe again this year, she would equal the record of the Austrian Annemarie Moser-Pröll, who won the general classification of the Women’s World Cup six times in the 1970s. Above all, she will win the big crystal globe again this year. is taking giant steps towards 100 worldwide successes, a legendary threshold that it could reach before the end of winter.

The Women’s Alpine Skiing World Cup continues on January 6-7 in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia.
