Mikaela ShiffrinShe finished sixth in her first World Cup Super-G in 22 months. After finishing 26th and 38th in the downhill sections, Shiffrin was faster than Goggia in the first two intermediate times on Sunday and then lost time at the end of the route.

“The descents weren’t super fast for me, of course,” laughed Shiffrin, according to US Ski and Snowboard. “So I thought, uh, oh, maybe I can’t really make it. But I still feel quite comfortable on a Super G ski, that’s really positive and makes me see the weekend a little better overall.

“The skiing and all of those parts were there and I’m really excited that I haven’t trained a lot in the past few weeks. I was pretty worried about coming this week. “

Goggia has joined Lindsey Vonn and Katja Seizinger as the only woman to win all three races at Lake Louise in one season. Vonn did it in 2011, 2012 and 2015.

Goggia was connected with her friend Vonn all weekend.

On Friday she won the descent with a 1.47 second lead, the largest lead in the last 50 years by no other woman than Vonn and Austria Annemarie Moser-Pröll, the two greatest downhillers in history.

On Saturday she won her sixth downhill start in a row and thus reached the longest series in the last 40 years, which Vonn and. share Picabo Street.

The Alpine Skiing World Cup for women is moving to St. Moritz in Switzerland for a couple of Super-G this coming weekend.
