Mikaela Shiffrin is finally ready to kick off her 13th FIS Alpine Ski World Cup season this weekend with two slaloms in Levi, Finland, on Saturday November 19 and Sunday November 20.
The defending World Cup overall champion was due to race in Sölden, Austria in October, but the women’s giant slalom was canceled due to bad weather.
The American has four career victories in Lapland (2013, 2016, 2018, 2019) and only trails last year’s Crystal Globe winner in slalom Petr Vlhova (five) for victories on the Levi Black tour.
A triumph this weekend would mean the two-time Olympic champion would equal the women’s record for winning at least one World Cup event in 11 consecutive seasons, which they jointly held Wrenia Schneider (1984/85-1994/95) and Renate Gotschl (1996/97-2006/07).
Shiffrin is fighting for her fifth overall title, which would place her second on the all-time winners list behind only Austria Annemarie Moser-Pröll which has six crowns.
The 27-year-old American won 74 World Cup events, leaving her third on the all-time list Ingemar Stenmark (86) and Lindsey Vonn (82).
