Petra Vlhová and Mikaela Shiffrin jointly won the giant slalom race in Maribor, Slovenia on February 1, after they finished with the same time of 2:31.31.

Norwegian skier Mowinckel ended third, 0.93 s behind Vlhová and Shiffrin.

It is the second World Cup giant slalom victory for Vlhová, after her triumph one month ago in Semmering, Austria, Sme daily wrote.

"It is excellent for both of us, I am very happy about it," Vlhová said after the race.
