Mikaela Shiffrin soared to new heights with her recent win at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Åre, Sweden. This win is a huge achievement for Shiffrin, breaking records and becoming the first ever athlete, male or female, to win four World Championship titles in a row.
Shiffrin rocketed into the competitive ski scene at the age of 16 when she took gold in slaloms at the 2011 US National Championships and became the youngest skier ever to win a national alpine title. She has soared into high ranks and now holds 3 Olympic medals, 7 World Championship medals, and 57 World Cup wins.
At only 23 years old, Shiffrin has astounded the world with her incredible performance on the slopes. She continues to prove again and again that she is, as Lindsey Vonn says, in a “league of her own.”
