The major attraction of the FIS Ski World Cup was the battle between world number Mikaela Shiffrin and the Beijing Olympic gold medalists Petra Vlhova. Both the skiers started the world cup with the same number of points, but Mikaela was always ahead of her Slovakian rival with some points.

Moreover, this spectacular victory might have demoralized Petra’s quest to be at the top against her American rival. After today’s results, she is lagging behind with a substantial lead. However, there are still three more races left in the finals and anything can happen.
