The American won the giant slalom in Aare on Friday and, like Stenmark, has triumphed 86 times in the World Cup. At the same time, the five-time overall World Cup winner got the crystal globe in the giant slalom. Franziska Gritsch, who was third at half time, fell a few goals before the finish line on her way to her best giant slalom result.

Best Austrian was Stephanie Brunner in ninth place. Federica Brignone in second (+0.64s) and Sara Hector in third (+0.92) shared the podium with Shiffrin, who claimed her 15th Crystal Globe. Already on Saturday (10.30 a.m./1.30 p.m.) Shiffrin can become the sole record holder in her favorite discipline slalom.
