Her 83rd victory in Italy on Tuesday leaves only one athlete ahead of Shiffrin: Ingemar Stenmark. The legendary Swedish skier has said he thinks Shiffrin will win more than 100 races.
Mikaela Shiffrin, 27, ties Lindsey Vonn's record for the most alpine World Cup wins for a woman. Shiffrin also has two Olympic gold medals and six world championships.
"I have always pushed the limits of ski racing and it has allowed me to have amazing success but also dramatic crashes," Vonn said, summarizing a storied career.
In the downhill at what's believed to be her final Olympics, Lindsey Vonn hit speeds of nearly 70 mph as she scorched down the mountain. "I gave it all today, skied a great race," she said.
