Mikaela Shiffrin won a World Cup event for the third time in eight days, beating Petra Vlhova in the head-to-head final of parallel slalom on Sunday in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

Shiffrin trailed midway down the course after clipping a gate but led her Slovakian opponent through the final three gates.

The American star's 48th career World Cup win — fourth on the women's all-time list — was her third straight after back-to-back victories in the super-G speed discipline Saturday at St. Moritz and last Sunday at Lake Louise, Canada.

"I'm not unbeatable, no," Shiffrin said.

Not quite, but Shiffrin, pursuing her third overall title in a row, has more than double the points of the second-place skier, Michelle Gisin of Switzerland.
