At the ripe young age of 22, Mikaela Shiffrin is already miles ahead of some of the best female skiers in history.
She’s won Olympic gold, pulled down multiple slalom titles, and is now one of the youngest women to ever claim an Overall FIS World Cup Title reports RedBull.com.
The win comes after speed specialist, Ilka Stuhec decided to sit out the slalom event in Aspen today, paving the way for Shiffrin’s victory lap. She’s just the 5th American to ever claim the FIS overall world cup title. Her predecessors include Lindsey Vonn, Bode Miller, Phil Mahre, and Tamara McKinney. Shiffrin finished second in today’s slalom event @Aspen behind Slovakian, VLHOVA Petra.
