Alpine skiing: Shiffrin misses the first run of the Kranjska Gora slalom, Vlhova in the lead

Slovak skier Petra Vlhova set the best time in the first run of the World Cup slalom at Kranjska Gora in Slovenia on Sunday, marked by the big mistake of ski queen Mikaela Shiffrin who straddled.

After 30 bibs, Petra Vlhova is ahead of the German Lena Dürr and the Croatian Leona Popovic, both second at 26 hundredths.

The surprise of the day came from the five-time winner of the big globe Mikaela Shiffrin who, extremely rare, got on a pole and will therefore not see the second round.

We have to go back to February 2022 and the Beijing Winter Games to see Shiffrin go out in slalom. In the World Cup, she had not competed in her favorite discipline (56 victories) since January 2022, already in Kranjska Gora.

The American with 93 World Cup victories thus concludes a Slovenian weekend that had already gotten off to a bad start the day before in the giant event, where she took an unusual ninth place, her worst result in the discipline since November 2022.

The second round is scheduled for 12:30 p.m.
