Women’s slalom medals won in PyeongChang

American ski star Mikaela Shiffrin couldn’t repeat her golden performance in Friday’s women’s slalom.

The 22-year-old Vail, Colorado, native, who won gold Thursday in the giant slalom and four years ago in slalom at the Sochi Games, finished fourth Friday in her signature event.

Frida Hansdotter of Sweden won gold, while Wendy Holdener of Switzerland took silver and Katharina Gallhuber of Austria earned bronze.

Shiffrin struggled on the first of her two runs and found herself in fourth place halfway through the event, about a half second off Holdener’s lead.

Shiffrin was able to make up some of that time on her second run, briefly climbing into second place, but was eclipsed again as the last few skiers completed their runs.

Four years ago in Sochi, Shiffrin became the youngest, at just shy of 19 years old, to win the Olympic slalom event.

A three-time world champion in the slalom, she is also the reigning World Cup overall and slalom champion and a four-time winner of the World Cup discipline title in that event.

Shiffrin has 10 wins on the current World Cup season to bring her career total to 41. And she once again sits atop both the current overall and slalom standings.

Three-time Olympian Megan McJames, 30, of Park City, Utah, finished 36h while Olympic rookie Alice Merryweather, 21, of Boston, finished 42nd.

Another three-time Olympian, Resi Stiegler, 32, of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, crashed during her first run and did not finish the event.
