Shiffrin’s record hunt on hold with Zagreb slalom canceled

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Mikaela Shiffrin will have to wait at least a couple of more days to match Lindsey Vonn’s World Cup wins record. A night slalom scheduled for Zagreb, Croatia, on Thursday has been canceled due to warm temperatures and strong wind. Shiffrin has 81 career wins and one fewer than Vonn’s women’s record. Ingemar Stenmark holds the overall top mark of 86. Shiffrin can match and break the record in two giant slaloms scheduled for Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, on Saturday and Sunday. Shiffrin won the first of two scheduled slaloms in Zagreb on Wednesday and has won five straight races overall.
