World Champion Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, CO) returned to the site of her first Audi FIS Alpine World Cup slalom podium to further her status as a giant slalom threat after finishing third Saturday in Lienz, Austria. Fourth after the opening run, Shiffrin stormed within .01 of second place on the icy slope for just the second World Cup giant slalom podium of her young career.
