Ligety races well in World Cup slalom in Zagreb; best result since 2008

Andre Myhrer of Sweden won the slalom.

He’s human, after all. Ted Ligety, winner of three straight World Cup giant slalom events, could not keep the victory train on track today in a slalom competition in Zagreb.  That being said, Ligety’s sixth-place finish was his best in this discipline since 2008, so he’s still skiing like a man possessed. Find out who won and how other American men fared in this story.

WOMEN’S WORLD CUP: U.S. Ski Team veteran Sarah Schleper of Vail overcame fog and a tough course to finish eighth in Tuesday’s Audi FIS Alpine World Cup night slalom in Zagreb, Croatia. Austria’s Marlies Schild took first place.

While the result put Schleper in the slalom World Cup top 30 for the season, the race was not so kind to other Americans, including Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso, neither of whom was able to finish their first run on the icy course. Complete story.
