Shiffrin wins 40th World Cup race plus third Golden Fox Trophy

Mikaela Shiffrin claimed her 40th career World Cup victory in the Kranjska Gora slalom on Sunday after charging down an icy slope and taking a commanding lead over the rest of the field. Her back-to-back wins in Slovenia were also commemorated with the 54th Golden Fox Trophy, the third of her career and thus one with diamond honors. It was the first diamond Golden Fox Trophy to be awarded since Anja Paerson raced in Maribor. 

Frida Hansdotter picked up her third straight slalom podium result with a solid second-place finish. She's excited to head next to Flachau, Austria, the site of her last victory one year ago. With another passionate performance, Wendy Holdener also skied to her third straight slalom podium finish in third. After finishing the GS in fourth, Holdener secured the second-place award in the Golden Fox Trophy.

Her second straight fourth-place finish in the slalom was bittersweet, but Petra Vhlova landed in the third podium position for the Golden Fox Trophy after finishing ninth in the GS. The Slovakian recently announced that she is sponsoring 12 of the best junior skiers in Slovakia and providing them with a variety of race-specific equipment including speed suits, protection, poles, gloves, and backpacks. She hopes to continue to give back and promote the sport in her home country by offering support that was not available when she was a junior competitor. 

The ladies' tour moves on to Flachau, Austria, for the annual night slalom on Tuesday.
