Shiffrin repeats as World Cup champ

Mikaela Shiffrin celebrates after her third-place finish in Friday's Giant Slalom is enough to secure overall title

The American duly wins for the second successive season with five races still remaining.

Shiffrin follows Lindsey Vonn as only the second American woman to win multiple World Cup titles, while she can add the slalom globe on Saturday.

Mikaela Shiffrin of US takes 3rd place during the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Women's Giant Slalom on March 9, 2018 in Ofterschwang, Germany.

Holdener needed a top two finish to have any hope of keeping the title race alive.

The 22-year-old secured back-to-back crystal globes following giant slalom gold at the Pyeongchang Olympics last month.

The race was won by Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway.

EagleVail's Mikaela Shiffrin locked up her second-straight overall World Cup title Friday with a third-place finish in a giant slalom at Ofterschwang, Germany. Moser-Proell returned and won another 21 races.

Shiffrin sits second, on 657, and Rebensburg third on 607.
