ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (AP) — Vail native Mikaela Shiffrin has won a World Cup downhill ski race to extend her lead in the overall standings.

When Shiffrin is even winning downhills her rivals have less hope of denying her a record-tying sixth overall World Cup title.

Shiffrin mastered the sharper turns on a sun-bathed course Saturday at St. Moritz to be 0.15 seconds faster than standout downhill racer Sofia Goggia.

Federica Brignone was 0.17 back in third to complete a high-quality podium for the first downhill this season.
