Mikaela Shiffrin had her winning streak in slalom at the world championships ended by Katharina Liensberger on Saturday as the title returned to Austria after 10 years.

Shiffrin had to settle for bronze after earning slalom gold at a record four straight worlds.

This time, Shiffrin finished 1.98 seconds behind Liensberger, who posted the fastest times in both runs. Petra Vlhova, the overall and slalom World Cup leader from Slovakia, was one second behind the Austrian for silver.

After her triumph in Tuesday’s parallel event, Liensberger is now a double world champion but has yet to win on the World Cup circuit.

Burns was at 10-under overall through 13 holes.

Dustin Johnson, Max Homa and Wyndham Clark were at 7 under, with Patrick Cantlay another shot behind.
