Mikaela Shiffrin crowned a successful speed race weekend in Bansko, Bulgaria, with victory in the super-G on Sunday. Following her win in Friday's downhill and fourth place in the downhill Saturday, Shiffrin chalked up her 66th career victory and is now just one short of the retired Austrian Marcel Hircher's 67.
Only Shiffrin's fellow American Lindsey Vonn (82) and Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark (86) have more. "I wasn't perfectly clean everywhere, but I was aggressive and that's how you have to be in super-G," Shiffrin told Germany's ARD television. "The surface was perfect, and I like this hill so I am really, really happy."
The win is Shiffrin's fourth in super-G and puts her closer to a fourth straight overall World Cup title while she also takes the lead in the super-G standings. Shiffrin benefited from Italian Federico Brignone crashing out on a faster split time. Brignone had attacked the icy course aggressively but caught a gate and slid into safety netting, one of several skiers to crash out. Brignone appeared to have hurt a hand but was otherwise uninjured.
