After nabbing the first World Cup title of her career last month, 17-year-old Mikaela Shiffrin has regained the lead in the World Cup slalom standings by winning Friday's event by a massive margin of 1.19 seconds. Shiffrin posted a combined time of 2 minutes, 1.73 seconds. Slovenian Tina Maze, who entered the slalom as the overall and discipline leader, finished the first leg in second, behind Shiffrin, but then failed to complete her second run. Maze remains atop the overall World Cup standings. Lindsey Vonn, who returned to training yesterday after an illness, skipped the race.
