Brilliant Shiffrin wins historic third title

American Mikaela Shiffrin won a record-equalling third consecutive world slalom gold with a dominant victory at the Alpine World Ski Championships.

The 21-year-old clocked the fastest times of both the first and second runs and claimed gold by 1.64 seconds.

Wendy Holdener, of Switzerland, was second and Sweden's Frida Hansdotter finished third.

Great Britain's Alexandra Tilley came in 25th as she finished 5.45 behind the winner in St Moritz on Saturday.

Shiffrin's third win in the slalom equalled the record of German Christl Cranz, who completed her treble in 1939.
