Peter Vlhova accomplished only the second victory in the slalom in the season Andorra 2023 FIS Skiing Globe Cup Final on Saturday (March 18).

Slovakia’s Olympic champion led by .32 seconds following the very first run in Soldeu and turned her lead into a .43-second benefit more than Croatia Leona Popovic who accomplished her very first podium.

Series winner and general Globe Cup champion Mikaela Shiffrin was third and tied Lindsey Vonn’s Globe Cup podium record of 137.

With rain falling and visibility compromised on the course, numerous runners failed to full their second runs, which includes Canada’s globe champion Laurence St-Germainof Slovenia Ana Bucik, Katharina Liensbergerand an Austrian colleague Franziska Gritsch which lasted only 3 gates.

One particular spin following the roller in the late challenge proved especially difficult for the skiers Mina Fuerst Holtmann, Lena Duerrand Paula Moltzan wasting a large quantity of time.

The latter runners approached the stretch with terrific caution, but Shiffrin attacked the top rated half to enable herself to be somewhat conservative in the bottom half.

And following Anna Svenn Larsson took off, Popović developed the ski of her life to take the lead with only Vlhova till the finish.

The 27-year-old struggled in the top rated half, losing her lead in the very first run, but pulled it collectively in the bottom half to finish the season on a higher.

The season ends on Sunday with the women’s giant slalom.

Extra to come…
