Shiffrin passes Vonn to become all-time woman's World Cup winner​


The victory puts the 27-year-old just three wins away from the all-time record held by Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden, who captured 86 World Cup wins between 1974 and 1989.

"With her 12th world medal, the 27-year-old Shiffrin tied Kjetil Andre Aamodt, a Norwegian star of the 1990s and 2000s, for the most in individual events since World War II. Aamodt earned his 12th and final medal in his 27th world championships race. Shiffrin matched him in her 15th worlds start.

Swede Anja Pärson holds the overall record of 13 modern medals. She won two in the team event.

Shiffrin has six gold medals, one shy of that modern record.

Shiffrin, the greatest slalom skier in history, is selective when it comes to the speed events of downhill and super-G. She has never raced the downhill at worlds and will not enter Saturday’s race."

"Shiffrin has 11 wins on the World Cup circuit this season to take her overall tally to 85 – breaking Lindsey Vonn’s women’s record of 82 and moving within one of the overall mark set by Ingemar Stenmark in the 1970s and 80s."

"Mikaela Shiffrin won the gold medal in the women’s giant slalom on Thursday to become the most successful skier in the modern history of the Alpine world championships.

The victory makes her only the fourth female skier to win world titles in four different disciplines."




"Mikaela Shiffrin won her seventh career Alpine world championships gold medal on Thursday, after winning the giant slalom in Méribel, France, in the Alps.

The American took her overall tally to 13 medals from 16 career world championship races, making her the most successful skier in the modern era.

She now sits two medals behind German Christl Cranz’s record 15 medals won in the 1930s, when races were hosted every year instead of biannually as they are now."

"It was an historic, record-breaking race for the ages, executed on the very same mountain that Mikaela Shiffrin achieved her very first World Cup victory more than ten years ago.

Shiffrin charged down the Störtloppsbacken slalom race course in Are, Sweden, with supreme confidence, less than 24 hours after equaling Swedish icon Ingemar Stenmark’s longstanding record of 86 World Cup victories.

As if she was floating on her Atomic Redster skis, Shiffrin executed her turns with determination, precision and grace, on a course that was set for speed. The Colorado skiing legend, who turns 28-years-old on Monday, etched her name, yet again, in ski racing’s record books – this time as the all-time winningest racer with an otherwordly 87th World Cup victory."

"Shiffrin now stands alone in ski racing immortality, having moved one win past the Swedish icon Stenmark, who won his 86th and final race in Aspen, Colorado, 34 years ago. Shiffrin achieved the historic 87th victory just two days before her 28th Birthday, while Stenmark was nearly 33, when he won No. 86 in March 1989."
