While she had already won the overall title, there was still a crystal globe at the table. However, even after leading the race in the first run, Mikaela couldn’t turn it in her favor.

In today’s giant slalom Mikaela could only secure the seventh position, while her rival Petra Vlhova finished on the podium at third place.
