Robinson Pulled an "Alice" to Close the Giant Slalom Season

Today Alice closed the season in the same way that she did last year in Kranjska Gora, at the top of the podium and setting the best time in the last run.

Alice Robinson (19 years) is the first woman to claim three World Cup Giant Slalom wins before turning 20 years old since Mateja Svet in the late 1980s.

She finished in second place in the last Giant Slalom event in the World Cup, in Jasná on 7 March. She has now claimed five World Cup podiums in the Giant Slalom: three wins and two second places.

I wasn’t happy at all with my first run, (...) So I just thought I have to go full gas and give it all my energy in the second run since it was the last of the season I gave every bit of energy and power that I had", Robinson said.

Mikaela Shiffrin finished in second place +0.28 behind Robinson. It is podium 106 in the World Cup for the American star.

Meta Hrovat rounded out the podium, +0.48 behind the young ski ace.

Marta Bassino, who finished today in 7th place, has secured the World Cup title in the last Giant Slalom in Jasna. Bassino became the fourth Italian skier to win the Giant Slalom Crystal Globe, after Deborah Compagnoni did it in 1997, Denise Karbon in 2008, and Federica Brignone last season.

Marta Bassino is the only woman to have won multiple Giant Slalom events (4) this World Cup season: Sölden, Courchevel, and Kranjska Gora (2).

Marta Bassino finished the season with 546 points in the Giant Slalom standings. Mikaela Shiffrin was the runner-up with 420 points, while Tessa Worley closed out the top-three in the discipline with 391 points.
