posted by Josh Nagy -

Well, it was obviously worth the wait.

Because after a pair of postponements, Mikaela Shiffrin has one Olympic gold medal in hand.

 The 22-year-old Shiffrin used a hard-charging final run to win the giant slalom for her second career Olympic title. The American trailed by 0.20 seconds after the first run, but she powered through a course filled with ruts to quickly make up time in the second.

Shiffrin ended up with winning time of 2 minutes, 20.02 seconds, which was 0.39 seconds ahead of Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway who took silver and Federica Brignone of Italy took bronze.

First-run leader Manuela Moelgg of Italy wound up eighth.
