Sportswoman of the Week Ending 3/12/2023
There's a new women's ski champion of all time and her name is Mikaela Shiffrin. The American greatest skier of all time notched her 87th career World Cup victory on Saturday to eclipse Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark for the most all time. Ingemar competed in the 70s and 80s in which the sport was still a bit more limited in it's competitors all the more impressive. Shiffrin's diverse skills contribute to her ability to dominate the sport at a level never seen before. The two-time Gold Medalist and five-time World Cup champion (and now repeat Sportswoman of the Week) has won 73 of her 87 in either Slalom (53) or Grand Slalom (20). To go with 5 Super-G's, 3 Downhills, 1 combined, 3 parallel city events, and 2 parallel slaloms. The 28-year-old from Vail, CO, is an American legend and a repeat Sportswoman of the Week!
