FLACHAU, Austria • American teenager Mikaela Shiffrin won a World Cup night slalom on Tuesday, the third victory in her first year on the circuit.

The 17-year-old Shiffrin, who was second after the opening run, posted the third-fastest time in the final run to finish in a combined time of 1 minute, 51.45 seconds.

Frida Hansdotter of Sweden was 0.85 back in second, and Tanja Poutiainen of Finland took third, trailing Shiffrin by 1.10.

Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany, who led Shiffrin by 0.56 after the first run, straddled a gate shortly before the end of her final run and failed to finish.

Shiffrin already was the first American to win two World Cup races before turning 18. She is exactly the same age — 17 years, 308 days — as Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proell was when she earned her third career victory in 1971. Moser-Proell holds the all-time record of 62 World Cup wins.
