US ski star Mikaela Shiffrin clinches second consecutive overall World Cup title

Shiffrin secures overall World Cup title with 5 races to

But the 22-year-old shook it off and on Friday secured her second straight overall World Cup title with five events to spare.

Mikaela Shiffrin of US takes 3rd place during the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Women's Giant Slalom on March 9, 2018 in Ofterschwang, Germany.

Ultimately, she did not even need that as Wendy Holdener, the only woman who could have pushed the battle to another race, finished down in 14th. Vonn holds the American record with four season titles, which tally all the points in all the disciplines throughout the entire World Cup season.

Shiffrin, a two-time Olympian who won a gold medal in giant slalom in PyeongChang, is expected to compete in both giant slalom on Friday and slalom on Saturday. She had the fourth-fastest time after her opening run and improved to third after her second.

Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel claimed her first World Cup victory having won two silvers at the Olympics.

Shiffrin, with 41 World Cup wins to her name - 10 of them this season - is already assured the slalom title while in the giant slalom standings she is lying 81 points adrift of Rebensburg and 32 behind Tessa Worley ahead of next week's World Cup finals in Are, Sweden.

Jaylen Brown seems mostly okay after scary fall
When he finally rose from the floor - passing on the stretcher that had been rolled out - fans stood and cheered. He added 12 rebounds, but it wasn't enough for a Timberwolves team without injured All-Star Jimmy Butler.

"I've worked hard for this a really long time", Mowinckel said.

Shiffrin also joins two-time overall victor Bode Miller and now trails just Vonn and Phil Mahre (three titles) among Americans. "But nothing is impossible, so I am going to stay focused".

Mikaela Shiffrin can finally relax again. "It was quite a relief actually when the Olympics were over so I could focus on the rest of the World Cup season".

Shiffrin finished a further 0.08 seconds behind in third place.

In Kvitfjell, Norway, Olympians Bryce Bennett and Andrew Weibrecht are among the USA men competing in the downhill on Saturday, followed by super-G on Sunday.
