Resi Stiegler surprises with second place finish in World Cup slalom to earn first career podium

Resi Stiegler celebrates her podium on Sunday.

Hard to believe, but an American woman stood on the podium after a World Cup race on Sunday and her name wasn’t Lindsey or Julia.

Believe it. Wyoming native Resi Stiegler, who had never been on a World Cup podium, finished second in a slalom on Sunday (March 4) in Ofterschwang, Germany. All that separated her from first-place finisher, Canadian Erin Mielzynsky, was five-hundredths of a second.

That was a bit of an upset, considering how Marlies Schild has dominated the event this year, but Schild still clinched the season title for World Cup women’s slalom over the weekend. Read more.

Rising American slalom star Mikaela  Shiffrin was third after the first run, but a mistake during her second time down landed her in 27th. Tina Maze led after the first run, but the Slovenian skied off the course in her second run. Overall World Cup points leader Lindsey Vonn straddled a gate and was DQ’d during the first run while fellow American star Julia Mancuso did not qualify for the second run.
