Enter here, Mikaela Shiffrin. The queen of alpine skiing took her 87th World Cup victory in Are, erasing Sweden's Ingemar Stenmark and his 86 victories. The latter congratulated the American: "She is really impressive, fantastic."

After tying Stenmark's mark the day before, Shiffrin edged out Switzerland's Wendy Holdener (at 92/100) and Sweden's Anna Swenn Larsson (at 95/100) to hold the record for victories on the world tour alone.

"It's hard to understand this record. My brother and sister-in-law are there, they surprised me. It's super special for me. It was great to ski this second run in the lead, you had to be both smart and fast. I did exactly what I wanted today," Shiffrin told the International Ski Federation (FIS).

Guaranteed to win the big crystal globe

Race after race, the American, who turns 28 on Monday, continues to write the history of her sport. After dominating the giant on Friday, she crushed the slalom on Saturday, and took a 13th World Cup victory this winter.

Shiffrin is already assured of winning the overall standings for the fifth time before next week's finals in Soldeu (Andorra). By the way, she is also guaranteed to lift the small globes of the giant and the slalom.
