US Alpine Ski Racer

When it comes to dominance in the sport of Alpine skiing, one name comes to mind—Mikaela Shiffrin.

From the early days of her career, the potential, drive, and grit shone through, giving a glimpse of the great levels she would reach. Born in Vail, Colorado, skiing has been in her blood since a young age—both of her parents were competitive ski racers. And since her first days on skis, she has been dominating the world of ski racing, racking up win after win, breaking records each year. One of the most recent impressive feats is being the youngest skier—male or female—to win 50 World Cup races, which she achieved all before she was 24 years old. Her meteoric rise has no sign of stopping as each year she is appearing stronger and more confident with every race.
