Mikaela Shiffrin Ties Ingemar Stenmark's Record 46 World Cup Slalom Wins

By

Huge congratulations to Mikaela Shiffrin who tied Ingemar Stenmark’s record for the most World Cup wins in a single discipline on Sunday in Killington where she took home her 46th slalom victory of her career. Shiffrin had this to say about the win when she spoke to NBC Sports:

“I actually didn’t know about the record. I won’t say it’s not meaningful. It certainly is, but I’m trying not to focus on those numbers. The closer I get to these marks, it’s hard not to think about it and want that.”
Her win Sunday marked her 5th consecutive slalom win in Killington. Mikaela now leads the overall World Cup standings on 360 points after five events. The women’s World Cup is heading to Lake Louise, Canada, with the downhill taking place on December 3.
