Mikaela Shiffrin led a women's World Cup slalom race after the opening run Saturday, closing in on her fifth season title in the discipline.

Shiffrin finished a further 0.08 seconds behind in third place.

Shiffrin, shockingly fourth in the PyeongChang slalom, prevailed by.09 over Swiss Wendy Holdener in Ofterschwang, Germany, on Saturday.

"It's been a big battle for me mentally to know exactly where my focus should be", Shiffrin said, having returned from the Olympics. "The best thing for me now is to have the crystal globe already locked in".

Shiffrin, the Olympic giant slalom champion, needed just a top-six finish to guarantee the title.

The race was won by Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway.

It was in late October that a student told a school board investigator what Swinyar had discussed with his students. And no, this is not the same racist teacher who was outed as the host of a white supremacist podcast.

United States' Mikaela Shiffrin poses on the podium after placing third in Friday's World Cup giant slalom in Ofterschwang, Germany.

Shiffrin is only the second American female skier to win multiple overall titles, behind speed specialist Lindsey Vonn who has won four.

Her overall success overshadowed Mowinckel's win, her first on the World Cup circuit after silvers in the downhill and giant in Pyeongchang.

The American duly wins for the second successive season with five races still remaining. She also won a gold in the GS to go with her gold in slalom from the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

"It's an incredible moment right now", Shiffrin said. Shiffrin's 603-point lead over Holdener is now insurmountable.
