      American skier Mikaela Shiffrin finished tied for fifth in a World Cup downhill and had her quest for a record-tying 86th career victory extended by at least another day.

        American skier Mikaela Shiffrin finished in fourth place in a World Cup super-G and missed out on a record-tying 86th career victory. Shiffrin was the ninth starter and trailed leader Elena Curtoni of Italy by 0.15 seconds. The race was eventually won by Cornelia Huetter. The Austrian edged Curtoni by a mere 0.01 seconds.
