FLACHAU, Austria (AP) - -

Olympic slalom champion Mikaela Shiffrin won a women's World Cup night race on Tuesday to stretch her winning streak in 2018 to five races.
  
It was the American's 41st career win, matching the record for most World Cup wins by a 22-year-old skier, set by Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proell in the 1970s.
  
It also was the 200th women's World Cup win for the U.S. ski team.
  
Shiffrin trailed first-run leader Bernadette Schild of Austria by 0.37 seconds but posted the fastest second-run time to beat the Austrian by 0.94. Frida Hansdotter of Sweden was 1.43 behind in third.
  
Shiffrin became the first female skier to start a calendar year with five straight wins.
