Queen of the slopes Mikaela Shiffrin by the numbers
The GIST: History, made. Mikaela Shiffrin broke the record for most World Cup wins on Saturday by claiming the slalom title in Åre, Sweden, fittingly the site of her very first World Cup victory in 2012. In honor of the queen of the slopes officially owning the all-time crown, here’s a look at her career, by the numbers.
87: The record-setting career World Cup title Shiffrin won on Saturday, passing the legendary Ingemar Stenmark’s long-standing mark.
35: As in roughly 35.4% — Shiffrin’s incredible World Cup win percentage over the years. That’ll do.
6: Jack of all trades, master of…all of them, too. In 2018, then 23-year-old Shiffrin became the first skier to win in all six of the World Cup disciplines.
3: The number of races Shiffrin has remaining this season as we look ahead to this week’s World Cup Finals. Can’t wait to see what she does next.
