Mikaela Shiffrin is now the women’s all-time World Cup leader in slalom wins. Mikaela took home her 36th career victory on Saturday in Semmering, Austria. The victory put her a win ahead of her childhood heroine, Marlies Schild from Austria.

Shiffrin, who is only 23-years old, could still have over a decade of ski racing ahead of her.

“When I was young I wanted to be the best skier in the world. I was always watching Marlies, she was a legend. To me, she is the best slalom skier. I wouldn’t be here without her. For me, she has this record for ever,” said Shiffrin after her latest victory.

Congratulations Mikaela!
