Mikaela Shiffrin skied her way to the giant slalom crystal globe on Sunday in the final races in Soldeu, Andorra, beating out unsuspecting challenger, New Zealand’s 17-year-old Alice Robinson, by 0.30 seconds. Petra Vlhova skied onto the podium in third, 0.41 seconds out from Shiffrin, as the only other woman who came within a second of her final combined time.

Shiffrin’s victory is her 17th of the season, awarding her 2,204 total FIS points in the race for the overall globe, which she clinched a few races prior to the giant slalom final in Soldeu. The newly minted 24-year-old now has four globes from the 2018-19 season, having been crowned champion in each discipline she chose to actively participate in.

Stay tuned for full race coverage.
