Mikaela Shiffrin Wins First Race Since Death Of Her Father

By

Mikaela Shiffrin secured her 67th World Cup win, and the first since the sudden death of her father earlier this year. She won the women’s giant-slalom event at Courchevel by a narrow .82 seconds.

Mikaela was overcome with emotions when she realized she won.

Warning- this video is a tear-jerker.

This victory ties her with Marcel Hirscher for 3rd all-time on the World Cup win list. She trails only Lindsey Vonn (82), and the great Ingemar Stenmark (86).

Congrats from all of us at Unofficial Networks to Mikaela!
