KUEHTAI, Austria — Eagle-Vail teenager Mikaela Shiffrin won a women’s World Cup slalom in dominating style Monday for her 11th career victory.

The Olympic champion posted the fastest time in both runs and finished in an aggregate 1 minute, 43.39 seconds.

Second-place Sarka Strachova of the Czech Republic was 0.80 behind, and Wendy Holdener of Switzerland came third, trailing by 0.92. The rest of the field was more than a second off Shiffrin’s winning time.

Tina Maze of Slovenia placed sixth to extend her lead in the overall standings.

Shiffrin has won the World Cup slalom title for the past two seasons but Monday’s win was her first slalom podium of the season.
