Shiffrin’s 5th World Cup overall win… Beyond ‘Ski Empress’ Lindsay Vonn

Michaela Shiffrin (28, USA) won the overall championship in the women’s division of the Alpine World Cup in the 2022-23 season of the International Ski Federation (FIS). It is the 4th overall win in her career, surpassing ‘Ski Empress’ Lindsay Vonn (retired, USA).

Shiffrin placed 5th in the women’s downhill at the 2022-23 FIS Alpine World Cup held in Kvitpel, Norway on the 4th (local time) with a record of 1:33:15. 메이저사이트

With this, Shiffrin earned 1,792 of her ranking points in the Alpine World Cup this season and became the 2022-23 season champion regardless of the remaining 7 race results. In this season’s World Cup, Shiffrin won 5 wins each in the slalom and giant slalom, as well as one win in the super-G.

This is the fifth time Shiffrin has become the World Cup season champion after 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022. The record for the most overall wins in a women’s Alpine World Cup season was six by Annemarie Moser Prühl (Austria) in the 1970s.

With this year’s overall victory, Shiffrin surpassed Lindsey Vonn (retired, USA), who was called the “Ski Empress”, four times. In the men’s division, Marcel Hirscher (retired, Austria)’s 8 times is the record for most wins.

Shiffrin, who has won 85 World Cup races in her career, can share her shoulders with Inge Marsten Mark (retired, Sweden) with 86 wins in the Alpine World Cup, if she adds one win out of the remaining seven races this year.

Among the remaining seven games in the 2022-23 season, there are two remaining slalom and giant slalom, which are Shiffrin’s strong events, and it is highly likely that Shiffrin will break through the 86-win record within this season. Shiffrin will compete in the super-G, held at the same venue on the 5th.

Meanwhile, Kaisa Bikofri (Norway) won the downhill with a time of 1:32:36. This is the first time a Norwegian has won the World Cup women’s downhill.
