Shiffrin wins another slalom by huge margin at WCup finals

ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (AP) Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States won another slalom by a huge margin Saturday, with her closest rivals more than two seconds slower at the season-ending World Cup finals.

Veronika Velez-Zuzulova and Frida Hansdotter could only smile wryly as Shiffrin crossed the line 2.03 ahead after another monstrous run from the Olympic champion.

Shiffrin herself didn't celebrate after her fifth slalom victory of the season and her 19th in total, surpassing Sweden's Anja Parson for fifth place among women.

The American is unbeaten in slalom racing since February 2015 but missed five races during a two-month injury layoff and couldn't capture a fourth successive crystal globe in the discipline.

Hansdotter of Sweden clinched the World Cup slalom title earlier this month with a race to spare.
