Shiffrin will have to go through Schild to win the slalom

Mikaela Shiffrin finished sixth in the giant slalom Thursday at the World Championships in Schladming, Austria, but the 17-year-old American teenager will be a favorite in Saturday’s slalom. “It’s my first big event, and it’s really exciting to be here,” Shiffrin said.
Marlies Schild, the Austrian slalom legend, said she will enter Saturday’s slalom at the World Championships with “no expectations” despite being only one win short of Swiss great Vreni Schneider’s record of 34 World Cup slalom victories.
