Sweden’s Anna Swenn-Larsson was the best at home, 0.69 seconds behind, while third-placed Wendy Holdener from Switzerland is almost a second behind (+0.94).

If Shiffrin manages to win the 87th World Cup, she will be the only number one on the list ahead of Ingemar Stenmark. “The racing is nice after such an incredible day as yesterday. I don’t feel any pressure, maybe I’ll get a little nervous before the second round,” said Shiffrin in a great mood on ORF.

Austria’s women are threatened with a bitter disappointment. Katharina Truppe was the best in 13th (+2.17). Franziska Gritsch threaded in shortly after the first split. After her interim high, the Tyrolean experienced a painful double-out in Aare when she was third at half-time in the giant slalom. Katharina Liensberger, the winner of the youngest two Aare slaloms, just qualified for the 30-point decision (27./+2.93). Katharina Huber, Austria’s best in the World Cup slalom, missed this as 31st by 3/100.
