Not Shiffrin, but Vonn is number 1!

1st place: Lindsey Vonn (38, USA). 290.6 points. She won often, very often. The speed queen – probably forever.


Mikaela Shiffrin has the sole record for women with 84 World Cup victories. But does that make her the greatest ski racer of all time? Blick created its own rating. First, second and third places in the World Cup, World Championships and Olympic Games were taken into account. Of course, victories resulted in more points. Large crystal globes for winning the overall World Cup and small crystal globes for the discipline World Cups were also taken into account. The start of the measurement is 1967, when the World Cup was created.

Drama Queen or Speed ​​Queen? Vonn was both. No woman in the history of skiing mastered the balancing act between entertainment and sporting achievement (including 8 downhill crystal balls) so well. She cried in pain and happiness, came to press conferences with her lap dog and sometimes poked at opponents like Mikaela Shiffrin (“She always does her own thing”). Vonn was always brave on the skis, sometimes cocky – she often injured herself badly and will soon need artificial knee joints. That didn’t stop Vonn from riding parts of the Streif in Kitzbühel.
