Tina Maze wins gold in giant slalom; no medal for Mikaela Shiffrin
Going for their second gold medals of the 2014 Olympics, Slovenia’s Tina Maze and Austria’s Anna Fenninger were separated by just .07 hundredths of a second. Ultimately, it was Maze who finished with the gold in women’s giant slalom, so Fenninger will settle for silver.
Maze now has gold in women’s downhill and giant slalom while Fenninger’s gold came in super-G.
Germany’s Viktoria Rebensburg wasn’t far behind that impressive duo as she took bronze; Rebensburg trailed Maze by .27 and Fenninger by .20 hundredths of a second.
Rising U.S. star Mikaela Shifrrin came in fifth, coming up with a time of 2:37.37 (.50 off the mark). It’s generally a good start for the 18-year-old even if she didn’t get on the podium, as her strongest event is the slalom.
