Zettel finished in a combined time of 1 minute, 42.46 seconds to narrowly edge Schild by 0.67 seconds. Tina Maze of Slovenia was second in a race that Lindsey Vonn skipped as she recovers from an intestinal illness.

Teenager Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S. was in the lead for a few skiers, before winding up seventh. Shiffrin was third at the last slalom event in Levi, Finland, a competition won by Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany.

Hoefl-Riesch was questionable for this race after bruising her left arm when she crashed Saturday. She recovered enough to not only race Sunday, but race well, taking fourth.
