Final day of racing Sunday at the World Cup Finals had the women’s giant slalom and the men’s slalom to cap a big week and the season.

The Italians swept the women’s giant slalom podium Sunday at the World Cup Finals in Aspen, first-run leader Federica Brignone edging teammates Sofia Goggia and Marta Bassino to win the final race of the World Cup season.

Mikaela Shiffrin raced in the GS and finished sixth before she picked up her crystal globe as the best overall female skier this season.

Marcel Hirscher’s dominant season came to a disappointing end Sunday when he lost time at the bottom of the men’s slalom course on Aspen Mountain and ended up off the podium.
