Mikaela Shiffrin breaks World Cup record

US ski star Mikaela Shiffrin became the first person to claim 15 World Cup wins in a single season with slalom victory Saturday.

Shiffrin is arguably the most dominant athlete in sport at present. She has already clinched the overall Crystal Globe and has wrapped up a third consecutive World Cup slalom title, her sixth in total. 

She also clinched her fourth consecutive slalom world title in Sweden last month alongside gold in super-G and bronze in giant slalom.

If that wasn’t enough, the American looks almost certain to claim her first giant slalom season crown at the World Cup finals in Andorra next week.
