KRANJSKA GORA, Slovenia (AP) - Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin dominated a women's World Cup slalom on Sunday for her 40th career win.
  
The result put her level with Sweden great Ingemar Stenmark for the number of World Cup victories before turning 23. Only Austrian standout Annemarie Moser-Proell won more races (41) at that age.
  
Holding a big first-run lead, the American posted the third-fastest time in the final leg and beat Frida Hansdotter of Sweden by 1.64 seconds.
  
Wendy Holdener of Switzerland was 1.87 behind in third for her 13nd career slalom podium without winning - a World Cup record.
  
Shiffrin has won seven of the last eight races, including all four in 2018.
