Giant Slalom Live Results: Mikaela Shiffrin Begins Gold Chase
• Shiffrin is set to ski seventh in the first run, after both Worley (fourth) and Rebensburg (sixth).
• Shiffrin’s biggest challenger is likely to be Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany, the 2010 winner and 2014 bronze medalist.
• Worley is the reigning world champion, beating Shiffrin by less than a second.
Initially a slalom specialist, Shiffrin has expanded her repertoire to become one of the best in the world in the giant slalom as well.

Rebensburg has three World Cup giant slalom wins to Shiffrin’s two this season.
