KILLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Mikaela Shiffrin powered through the fog Sunday at Killington to win her third straight World Cup slalom race.

The 23-year-old from Colorado overcame tiny mistakes on the final run and made up ground near the finish with the home crowd cheering. Shiffrin finished in a combined time of 1 minute, 43.25 seconds to edge Petra Vlhova of Slovakia by 0.57 seconds. Sweden's Frida Hansdotter finished third.

This was World Cup slalom win No. 34 for Shiffrin, tying her with Vreni Schneider for second among women in the discipline. The record of 35 is held by Austria's Marlies Schild, one of Shiffrin's childhood favorites.

Shiffrin has been a pillar of consistency in slalom. Over her last 31 World Cup slalom races, she's been on the podium 29 times, including 25 wins.
