Mikaela Shiffrin (85 Wins) Can Tie or Break Ingemar Stenmark’s All-Time World Cup Wins Record (86) This Week from Åre, Sweden
Live Coverage of Women’s Giant Slalom Begins Friday at 4 a.m. ET on Peacock
All Races Also Streaming on SkiAndSnowboard.Live
STAMFORD, Conn. – March 9, 2023 – Two-time Olympic gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin is one win away from tying Ingemar Stenmark’s all-time record of 86 career alpine skiing FIS World Cup victories across all disciplines. Peacock will present live coverage of Shiffrin’s chase to tie and possibly break the record this weekend with two races at the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup event, presented by Stifel, in Åre, Sweden. Coverage begins Friday, March 10, with the women’s giant slalom at 4 a.m. ET (Run 1) and 7 a.m. ET (Run 2).
Shiffrin will then race the women’s slalom on Saturday, March 11, at 4:30 a.m. ET (Run 1) and 7:30 a.m. ET (Run 2). An encore presentation of the weekend’s most significant race will air Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on CNBC. All races this weekend will also be available on the streaming service SkiAndSnowboard.Live.
MOST CAREER WORLD CUP WINS
1. Ingemar Stenmark (SWE)
2. Mikaela Shiffrin (USA)
3. Lindsey Vonn (USA)
Passing Ingemar Stenmark’s record, which has stood since 1989, would make Shiffrin the winningest alpine skier of all time, and statistically, one of the most dominant athletes in individual sports history. Shiffrin’s next chance to compete will be at the FIS World Cup Finals in Soldeu, Andorra, on March 15-19.
Shiffrin clinched her fifth overall World Cup title last weekend in Norway – one short on the all-time women’s winners list behind Annemarie Moser-Pröll (Austria). In January, she broke a tie with three-time Olympic medalist Lindsey Vonn to become the sole U.S. and women’s record holder for career FIS World Cup victories.
In addition to her World Cup chase, last month Shiffrin won the gold medal in giant slalom and silver medals in super-G and slalom at the 2023 World Championships in Méribel, France, bringing her total individual medal count at World Championships to 14, the most by a man or woman in the modern era.
Steve Schlanger will handle play-by-play alongside former Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team member Steve Porino.
