Shiffrin stands alone with 87th World Cup victory

ARE, Sweden — American skier Mikaela Shiffrin set the outright World Cup record for most career victories with 87 by winning a slalom Saturday.

Shiffrin broke a tie with Ingemar Stenmark on the all-time winner list for men or women. The Swedish skier Stenmark competed in the 1970s and ’80s.

She had matched Stenmark’s 86 wins with victory in a giant slalom Friday.

Saturday’s result marked the American’s sixth slalom win of the season and her record-extending 53rd career win in the discipline.

Shiffrin is set to compete in three more races this season at next week’s World Cup Finals. She has already locked up her fifth overall championship and the discipline titles in slalom and giant slalom.
