Shiffrin left fuming over start delay after Vlhova home win
JASNA, Slovakia (AP) — Slovakian skier Petra Vlhova turned the tables on Mikaela Shiffrin by winning a women’s World Cup giant slalom. The American had beaten Vlhova in Saturday’s slalom. Vlhova fell on her back in celebration as soon as first-run leader Shiffrin failed to beat her time. It was the 19th win in Vlhova’s career but first in a home race on the hill where she regularly trains. Shiffrin placed third while Alice Robinson of New Zealand climbed from seventh position to finish runner-up. Marta Bassino of Italy locked up the GS season title with a race to spare.
