And she did it with five races left in the season.

Shiffrin, who is the Olympic champion in giant slalom, has yet to start her final run.

American ski queen Mikaela Shiffrin claimed her second successive overall women's World Cup title after finishing third in the giant slalom in Ofterschwang on Friday. Holdener failed to win or finish in second place, which was the only mathematical chance Shiffrin could be knocked out of contention.

"I can really just enjoy the last races and not have to fight for points to win the globe". Lindsey Vonn, who did not race this weekend but will be in Are, holds the record of 81 wins.

Her overall success overshadowed Mowinckel's win, her first on the World Cup circuit after silvers in the downhill and giant in Pyeongchang.

In her first race after the Olympics, Shiffrin was fourth after the opening run but improved a spot to third, 0.74 seconds behind Mowinckel. She previously won gold in slalom, her strongest discipline, at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

"I had goals for the slalom and GS globes, the overall globe, Olympic medals", Shiffrin said Friday.

"So to have the overall this year locked in already before we go to (the World Cup) finals (in Are, Sweden), it feels like a confirmation for me". Rebensburg leads the overall giant slalom standings by 92 points over Tessa Worley of France. Shiffrin's 603-point lead over Holdener is now insurmountable. Moser-Proell returned and won another 21 races.

Shiffrin sits second, on 657, and Rebensburg third on 607.
