Done! Mikaela Shiffrin catches up with Lindsey Vonn and now also has 82 World Cup victories under his belt.

Mikaela Shiffrin (27) in training clothes, large on the cover of “Outside Magazine”. The text: “She is the greatest ski racer of all time.” It’s been five years since the US magazine caused a tantrum in Lindsey Vonn (38) with this presentation. “She’s the best slalom driver – without question,” admitted Vonn. The rest? Could you imagine. Two years later, Vonn shot concrete poison darts. “She was doing her own thing and she never really wanted to be involved or my help or anyone’s help.” Shiffrin did not offer her help to anyone either – Vonn was upset: “I think as a professional athlete – and especially as the ‘best of all time’ – you have a responsibility to help others.”

A lot has happened since then. Above all, this: Shiffrin continued to win. Not always and with interruptions, especially the death of her father Jeff (1955-2020) threw her off track in the meantime. “Resignation was an issue at the time,” Shiffrin recently admitted. But the ski prodigy from Vail (USA) continued. And how! That season she won 7 of the 14 races she started. At the second giant slalom in Kranjska Gora (Sln) victory number 8 is added. Shiffrin has 82 World Cup victories to his credit, just as many as Vonn. “Maybe people will stop asking me about it now,” she says, laughing. “I try not to think about it. I try not to change my goals because of that. But yes, it’s 82 wins. It’s indescribable.”
