Unbeatable in Flachau: Petra Vlhova wins the slalom and her first race of the season.

One, Petra Vlhova (27), seemed to have forgotten how to win. The other, Mikaela Shiffrin (27), won race after race. So what should the Slovakian have done against the US high-flyer? The answer comes from Vlhova in Flachau’s witches’ cauldron with two almost perfect runs – she wins for the first time this winter after seven podium finishes and is crying with happiness. Shiffrin, on the other hand, has to wait for her 9th win of the season, she comes second and sticks with Lindsey Vonn (38) to 82 World Cup victories.

Shiffrin will be able to handle it – just like the fact that the highest victory check (60,000 francs) in the women’s world cup is slipping through her fingers. Apparently she was in poor health when she started. As the “Krone” reports, she had to throw up after the second run at the finish. But that shouldn’t be the reason why she skips the next World Cup station. Rather, Shiffrin allows himself a break after seven races within 15 days and waives the upcoming speed weekend in St. Anton (one Super-G and one downhill).
