LEBANON, N.H. (Jan. 24, 2023) – U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Mikaela Shiffrin secured her 83rd FIS World Cup win in Italy to become the winningest female skier of all time.
“Congratulations to the Greatest Of All Time, Mikaela Shiffrin. She is an incredibly talented, mentally resilient athlete in a highly competitive global sport. Winning her 83rd World Cup race is a spectacular achievement,” said Dan Richards, the CEO of Global Rescue, the company providing emergency and crisis support since 2006 for the U.S. Ski & Snowboard team in the event of illness or injury among any of the team members.
Shiffrin’s win elevates her past the previous record holder, American skier Lindsey Vonn, and moves her within three victories of Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 86 World Cup wins.
“Mikaela Shiffrin is now not only the best woman alpine skier of all time, but she is also a great person, teammate and role model for the sport of alpine skiing,” said Sophie Goldschmidt, CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard. “As an organization, we are so proud of her accomplishments and cannot wait to see how she further transforms the sport and the history books next.”
Shiffrin admitted she was nervous before her run, but her anxiety washed away once it was time to go. “Everything went quiet and I just pushed as hard as I could at every turn. It’s still hard for me to believe that I have the mental focus again to be strong on the second run. It’s something I don’t take for granted.”
