Prior to Thursday, Shiffrin led the super-G standings by 32 points over Tina Weirather, and 47 points over Nicole Schmidhofer, meaning in order to win the super-G globe, she had to ski better than either of those racers in order to claim the title.
For the first time in the 2018/19 season, Shiffrin finished off the super-G podium in fourth, tying Nicole Schmidhofer 0.44 seconds off of back Viktoria Rebensburg’s total time of 1:23.91. Despite her finish, Shiffrin skied just fast enough to claim her first super-G title and walk away with her third crystal globe of the season, a day after celebrating her 24th birthday.
Tamara Tippler finished second in Thursday’s super-G, 0.15 seconds back from Rebensburg, followed by Federica Brignone in third, 0.34 seconds back.
Weirather and Ramona Siebenhofer did not finish their runs.
