Mikaela Shiffrin has skied to her 81st World Cup triumph to move to within one victory of her US compatriot Lindsey Vonn’s all-time women’s record of 82.
Shiffrin one title away from Vonn record
Mikaela Shiffrin has claimed an 81st career World Cup triumph in a Zagreb slalom to move within one of the women’s all-time victory record held by fellow American Lindsey Vonn.
The 27-year-old great triumphed for the fifth time in a row and seventh time overall in the season on Wednesday as she became the Zagreb ‘Snow Queen’ for a record fifth time with a record-extending 51st slalom victory.
She can match Vonn’s 82 top spots in another Zagreb slalom on Thursday.
Her 81 wins are just five shy of the overall record of 86 victories set by Swedish slalom great Ingemar Stenmark.
