Tina Maze wins, sets up winner-takes-all race with Mikaela Shiffrin for World Cup slalom title

FIS LogoUPDATE: Slovenian superstar Tina Maze won the slalom on Sunday (March 10), in Ofterschwang, Germany, to overtake Mikaela Shiffrin in the slalom standings. Even though the 17-year-old American earned an amazing sixth podium this season (plus a World Championship) with her third-place finish, she now stands 7 points behind the Slovenian with one race to go.

March 9: Austrian Anna Fenninger won Saturday’s (March 9) Giant Slalom in Ofterschwang, Germany. Fenninger bested Tina Maze, who still will win the discipline for the season, and Viktoria Rebensburg filled out the podium. Julia Mancuso topped American skiers in eighth. Read more.

March 8: Tina Maze may have settled the issue for the Overall World Cup title, but Julia Mancuso and Mikaela Shiffrin still are challenging the Slovenian star for season titles in Super G and Slalom.

This Sunday’s slalom in Ofterschwang starts that season-ending competition with a crucial matchup between Shiffrin and Maze. The American seeks to maintain her slim lead (528-495) over Maze in the first of two season-ending slalom races. )On Saturday, the women will race a Giant Slalom.)

In the GS season race, Maze leads Mancuso 420-365 entering the season’s final race next weekend at the World Cup finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. So it’s going to take a big day for the American. But if Mancuso manages to win and Maze finishes sixth or lower, the American can claim the title.

Here’s where to find start lists, live timing and results for both races this weekend.
