Mikaela Shiffrin, Colorado’s pride, bags the 83rd Skiing World Cup in Italy

Mikaela Shiffrin, is now the most decorated female alpine skier in history with her 83rd World Cup win at Kronplatz, Italy. The Vail Valley resident is only 27 years old, thus, she has ample time to reinforce her legacy as the best skier to ever grace the alpine tracks.

Shiffrin has won 35 percent of the races she’s entered, a mark even tennis dynamos Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams can’t claim. Lindsay Vonn, whose record Shiffrin broke Tuesday with a win in giant slalom, won 20 percent of her races.

Born in Vail to avid ski parents, Shiffrin made her international debut in 2010 at 14 years old and won her first World Cup in 2012 at age 17.

Stats on Mikaela Shiffrin’s skiing career:

14 global medals. Shiffrin has finished on the podium 14 times at the Olympic Games and World Championships, with two golds and a silver at the Olympic Winter Games and six golds, two silvers, and three bronzes at World Championship events.

5 gold medals at consecutive World Championships. When Mikaela Shiffrin won gold in the combined at the 2021 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, she became the first skier to win a gold medal at five straight World Championships.
