WOMEN’S WORLD CUP: A LOOK BACK
It is the second of 32 races on the women’s
2013-14 World Cup tour.
It is the first of eight women’s slaloms.
It is the 15th Cup race — all of them slaloms
— hosted by Levi, the first of a two-race set
that included a men’s slalom Nov. 17.
It is the fifth World Cup win for Mikaela
Shiffrin, all in slalom… It is her second score
at Levi, where she was third last season.
It is the 263rd U.S. Cup win.
Five slalom wins ties Shiffrin with Bode
Miller for fifth all-time among U.S. skiers. Phil
Mahre and Tamara McKinney each have nine
wins, Steve Mahre owns eight and Kristina
Koznick six. Shiffrin matches Christin Cooper
and Kiki Cutter for 11th all-time on the U.S.
World Cup victory list.
It is the sixth World Cup top-five for Marie-Michele Gagnon, her fourth in slalom.
It is a career-best World Cup result for Elli
Terwiel and just her fifth scoring result.
