Overall champion Tina Maze of Slovenia won a World Cup slalom Sunday to overtake Mikaela Shiffrin in the discipline standings and close in on becoming the first woman to win five crystal globes in a season.
Maze finished her two runs on the Ofterschwanger Horn course in 1 minute, 52.85 seconds to beat Wendy Holdener of Switzerland by 0.25 seconds. More importantly, world champion Mikaela Shiffrin was 0.75 back in third, meaning Maze now leads the 17-year-old American by seven points in the slalom standings with one race remaining.
Maze has already clinched the overall and giant slalom titles, setting a record for points in a season. She leads the super-G standings and can also clinch the downhill title at next week's World Cup finals at Lenzerheide, Switzerland.
