Shiffrin wins women’s downhill in alpine skiing…

Mikayla Shiffrin (USA) won her 91st career victory at the Fédération Internationale de Ski (FIS) Alpine World Cup.

Shiffrin won the women’s downhill at the 2023-2024 FIS Alpine World Cup in St. Moritz, Switzerland, on Monday (Sept. 9) with a time of 1 minute, 28.84 seconds.

Her time of 1:28.99 was just 0.15 seconds ahead of runner-up Sofia Goza (ITA).

Shiffrin now has 91 career World Cup victories and three this season.

Shiffrin’s win was in the downhill, which is the speedometer equivalent of alpine skiing.

Alpine skiing is divided into giant slalom, super giant slalom and slalom, where speed is the main variable, and slalom, where technique is important.

Shiffrin’s main discipline is technical, with 76 of her 91 career World Cup wins coming in slalom and giant slalom.

This is the fourth time Shiffrin has won the World Cup downhill.

Shiffrin, who holds the record for most World Cup wins for both men and women in alpine skiing, is also on track to become the first woman to reach 100 wins this season.

The victory also gives Shiffrin 100 career wins at major events, including World Cups, World Championships, and the Olympics.

Shiffrin has won seven gold medals at the World Championships and two gold medals at the Olympics, in the slalom in Sochi in 2014 and the giant slalom in Pyeongchang in 2018.

She missed the podium at last year’s Winter Games in Beijing. 파워볼
