Mikaela Shiffrin is only 27 years old, and she’s already the GOAT. Her dominance of alpine skiing is in the same category as Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, and Serena Williams…and she has an opportunity to further build on her legacy this weekend by surpassing the 34-year-old record for wins currently held by Swedish legend Ingemar Stenmark in his home country. It’s a far cry from where Shifrrin was a year ago, when she crashed out of the Beijing Olympics three times while still mourning her father’s death. So today, as Shiffrin chases history, Alyssa Roenigk brings us up to speed on Mikaela’s quest for greatness…and gives us a crash course in a snowy sport that’s picking up speed.
