Mikaela Shiffrin on verge of retaining overall title

American Mikaela Shiffrin claimed a second successive overall Alpine skiing World Cup title when she finished third in the giant slalom race at Ofterschwang on Friday.

Shiffrin finished a further 0.08 seconds behind in third place.

Her nearest rival, Wendy Holdener of Switzerland, lost any hope of overhauling the USA star when she trailed in 14th on Friday.

"It's been a big battle for me mentally to know exactly where my focus should be", Shiffrin said, having returned from the Olympics.

Since 2014, Shiffrin has raced in more than world championship and world cup slalom competitions and she recently competed in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeonchang.

Shiffrin already clinched a repeat World Cup overall title. Moser-Proell returned and won another 21 races.

Shiffrin, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, joins Vail's Lindsey Vonn as the only American woman with multiple overall World Cup titles.

In South Korea, she won Olympic gold in the giant slalom and silver in the combined event, but missed out on a medal in her strongest discipline, the slalom.

Her overall success overshadowed Mowinckel's win, her first on the World Cup circuit after silvers in the downhill and giant in Pyeongchang. Shiffrin is also the points leader in slalom and is third in giant slalom. Rebensburg leads the overall giant slalom standings by 92 points over Tessa Worley of France.
