Mikaela Shiffrin ties the record for most alpine skiing World Cup race wins
Mikaela Shiffrin, 27, won her 86th World Cup race on Friday, tying the overall career World Cup victory record set over 34 years ago.
With this victory, Shiffrin cements her place as one of the greatest skiers — and athletes — of all time.
Sweden's Ingemar Stenmark set the previous record for career race wins on the alpine skiing World Cup at age 32 in 1989.
