Mikaela Shiffrin wrapped up the season-long slalom World Cup title Tuesday in Stockholm, three days after winning her record fourth straight world title in the discipline. And she matched yet another record in the process.
Shiffrin won a parallel city event, defeating Christina Geiger of Germany in both runs to win by 0.27 seconds.
The victory gave the American two-time overall champion an insurmountable 203-point lead in the season standings with two races remaining. Her closest challenger, Slovakia's Petra Vlhova, was beaten by Geiger in the quarterfinals.
It was Shiffrin's 57th career win and 14th of the season, matching the record for most World Cup victories in a single campaign, set by Swiss great Vreni Schneider in the 1990s.
Ramon Zenhaeusern of Switzerland won the men's event, beating Olympic champion Andre Myhrer of Sweden in the final.
Marcel Hirscher lost in the quarterfinals but the Austrian seven-time overall champion gained enough World Cup points to lock up the slalom season title.
Brown makes peace with Steelers owner
Steelers receiver Antonio Brown ended his lengthy standoff with the team by meeting with president Art Rooney II, though any shot at reconciliation between the two sides appears to be out of the question.
Brown, who has asked to be traded, posted a picture on various social media accounts that showed him arm in arm with Rooney at the Palm Beach International Airport.
"We discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues!" Brown wrote. "We both agreed that it is time to move on but I'll always have appreciation and gratitude towards the Rooney family and (at)steelers organization!"
