    Mikaela is 25 years old, and will turn 26 at the end of this ski season. She has:
    68 WC wins
    100 Podiums
    3 Overall Globes, 7 Small Globes
    11 World Champs Medals
    2 Olympics (2014,18) with 3 medals (2G and S)

    When Lindsay Vonn was 25 she had:
    33 WC wins (another 30 wins in her last 26yo to 34yo years)
    64 WC podiums
    3 Overall Globes, 6 Small Globes
    4 World Champs Medals
    First Olympics (2010) at age 25 with 2 medals (G and B)

    35 years old is the sweet spot for retirement for most highly successful Alpine racers. This means that Mikaela could have 8-10 more years of success to completely decimate any previous records set.
    Let's just hope she can stay healthy for us to see this history.

    Vonn’s accomplishments are astounding when concidereing she did it in Speed events and overcame so many injuries. I don’t think anyone will challenge her Queen of Speed title for a long time.

    However, Vonn is not Shiffrin’s ceiling; she is on a trajectory all her own. She could become the most dominant athlete of all time.

    Agreed.

    But nothing is assured. 12 years ago, Tiger Woods looked like a lock to overtake Jack, and now...

    Hopefully Mikaela won't fall deep into the world of hookers and painkillers.

    She needs to stay healthy AND stay interested.

    That was a ridiculously long time to repair a single panel. Lots of Euros (mostly slovaks afaict) giving her a hard time on her Facebook feed about her being mad about it.

    Fuck them. Those people are still waiting for toilet paper that's less abrasive than 90 grit sandpaper.
