LIENZ, Austria (AP) — Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin held on to a big first-run lead to win a women's World Cup slalom on Thursday.

Backed by a 1.14-second lead from the opening leg, Shiffrin avoided risks and posted only the 11th-fastest time in the final run to beat second-place Wendy Holdener of Switzerland by 0.89 seconds.

Frida Hansdotter of Sweden was 1.22 behind in third, and Bernadette Schild of Austria was a further 0.55 behind in fourth.

Sweden's Estelle Alphand, daughter of former ski racer Luc Alphand, posted the fastest second-run time and finished fifth for her first career top-10 result.

It was Shiffrin's sixth win of the season and 36th overall.
