American teenager Michaela Shiffrin won her second World Cup slalom of the season and her career on Friday after she won the prestigious floodlit classic in Zagreb.

The 17-year-old, who celebrated her maiden World Cup victory last month in Are Sweden, dominated both runs to win in two minutes and 1.73 and be crowned Snow Queen. She now tops the discipline standings 26 points clear of Slovakian Tina Maze.

Like in Are three weeks ago second place went to Sweden’s Frida Hansdotter. The 27-year-old was 1.19 seconds adrift for her fourth world cup podium placing – all of which have been a runners-up spot.

Canada’s slalom prodigy Erin Mielzynski rounded off the podium in third place. The 22-year-old from Brampton, Ontario finished 1.76 off the pace.

Overall World Cup leader Maze entered the race having finished on the podium in the last nine technical events she entered.

However her dream run came to an end in Croatia when she straddled a gate in the second run and was disqualified.

Despite losing the lead in the discipline standings Maze retains a whopping 452-point lead in the overall standings over Germany’s Maria Hoefl-Riesch.
