Shiffrin goes off course, comes in 27th in slalom

• Mikaela Shiffrin ended her six-race winning streak in World Cup slaloms in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, when she stunned her rivals by skiing off course with a lead of a full second in sight of the finish. Shiffrin lost rhythm and balance going into a straight combination with six gates left, handing victory to Petra Vlhova of Slovakia in the last slalom before the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Originally listed as a “Did Not Finish” by race organizers, Shiffrin hiked back up the hill, paused and passed through the gate before skiing slowly down.

The American star was given 27th place, almost 14 seconds behind Vlhova, in her final World Cup race before going to South Korea for the Olympics.

Kenyan wins Miami

Marathon by 37 seconds

• Hillary Too of Kenya took the lead at mile 22 and won the Miami Marathon in windy weather by 37 seconds Sunday.

Teklu Deneke of Ethiopia finished second. Too’s time of 2 hours, 23 minutes, 2 seconds was four minutes slower than his time last year, when he finished second.

“I was slow today because of the wind,” Too said. “It was everywhere from start to finish. It affects us because you are running against it so many times.”

Five-foot Lyubov Denisova, a Russian living in Gainesville, Fla., won the women’s race with a career-best time of 2:40:53, nearly eight minutes better than runner-up Lindsey Scherf of High Falls, N.Y.

Flames place Jaromir Jagr

on waivers, sources say

• The Calgary Flames placed veteran forward Jaromir Jagr on waivers, which could spell the end of his illustrious NHL career, two people with direct knowledge of the move said.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the transaction. The second-leading scorer in league history is on regular waivers, though one person told the AP that if the 45-year-old Jagr clears, he will be placed on unconditional waivers Monday for the purpose of terminating his NHL contract so he can return to Europe to finish the season.

West Ham player gives apology for spitting at foe

• Arthur Masuaku apologized Sunday for spitting at an opponent during West Ham’s FA Cup defeat to Wigan in England.

The defender was sent off during the Hammers’ 2-0 loss at third-tier Wigan on Saturday as he reacted to a challenge from Nick Powell.

Following the fourth-round game, West Ham manager David Moyes described Masuaku’s actions as “despicable.”

Masuaku took to social media to apologize.

“I want to say sorry for my actions yesterday — I let down my teammates, the manager, coaches, board and the fan,” Masuaku said on Twitter.
