By November 10, 2012

Follow me on:

altaU. S. teen Mikaela Shiffrin finished third in the first run of the Audu FIS World Cup Slalom at Levi, Finland and held that spot after the second run to make her first podium appearance of the season.

"I felt confident because I had a plan to just ski like I do in training and I knew I could do that, said Shiffrin. I wasn't worried about what place I was going to come in. I was definitely nervous but I knew I could execute my plan."

Germany's Marie Hoefl-Riesch, came on strong in the second run to overtake first round leader and hometown favorite Tanja Poutiainen.
