KRANJSKA GORA, Slovenia – Mikaela Shiffrin’s pursuit of Lindsey Vonn’s Women’s World Cup record will continue for at least one more day.

Shiffrin finished sixth in the giant slalom on Saturday, ending her winning streak in five races. She was stuck at 81 career wins – one win separated Vonn from 82.

Valerie Grenier of Canada won the race by a comfortable margin, taking her first career victory with the fastest time in both runs. Marta Bassino took second place with a loss of 0.37, and the podium was completed by Petra Vlhova with a loss of 0.40.

Shiffrin, who finished 1.33 back, could face Vonn in another giant slalom scheduled for the same route on Sunday.

“I don’t mind talking about it and I’m not tired of it,” Shiffrin said. “I just say, ‘That’s the way it is.’ Everyone will be saying, ‘You have a chance to win 82 races and equal the record’, every race until I do it – if I do it.
