Congratulations, Mikaela Shiffrin! Looking Back On Her 2019 World Cup Wins Through Photos

March 04, 2019, 1:49 p.m. (ET)

Mikaela Shiffrin claimed the overall crystal globe for the most points on the world cup circuit on Saturday.

But there was no competition this weekend. And there are still six races remaining.

Shiffrin was able to claim the victory due to a cancellation in Rosa Khutor, Russia, on account of heavy snowfall. The event's cancellation put Shiffrin out of reach in the standings, and she thus claimed the title prior to the World Cup Finals taking place.

So far this season, Shiffrin won a record-tying 14 titles on the world cup circuit, and with a handful of races left she has the chance to win a 15th for the most ever by a skier in a single season. This season she also became the only skier to ever capture a world cup win in all six alpine skiing disciplines - and one of seven women to win the five traditional alpine events.

At only 23 years old, the win marked her third consecutive overall crystal globe. It's fair to say the Shiffrin won't be going anywhere among the ski racing community anytime soon.

In honor of her victory, we look back on the Shiffrin's 14 first-place finishes (and counting).
