Mikaela Shiffrin gets silver, Lindsey Vonn skis out in combined


JEONGSEON, South Korea — Michelle Gisin of Switzerland won the women’s Olympic Alpine combined on Thursday with an aggressive slalom run to beat Mikaela Shiffrin.


Lindsey Vonn, the leader after the downhill portion, made a mistake early in the slalom and didn’t finish in what’s likely the final race of her Winter Games career.


Gisin turned in a nearly flawless performance as she finished in a combined time of 2 minutes, 20.90 seconds to eclipse the silver-medalist Shiffrin by 0.97 seconds. Wendy Holdener of Switzerland earned the bronze.

Mikaela Shiffrin.


Add another medal to Shiffrin’s burgeoning collection. She won Olympic gold in the giant slalom a week ago and captured the slalom title at the 2014 Sochi Games.
