The Modesto Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

Mikaela Shiffrin capped the best year of her ca­reer by set­ting yet an­other mile­stone Satur­day, over­tak­ing one of her child­hood idols to be­come the most suc­cess­ful fe­male slalom skier in the 52-year his­tory of the World Cup.

In Sem­mer­ing, Aus­tria, the Amer­i­can added her 36th vic­tory. Shiffrin pre­vi­ously shared the record with Aus­tria’s Mar­lies Raich, who, com­pet­ing as Mar­lies Schild, won 35 times be­fore re­tir­ing in 2014.

Only Swedish great Inge­mar Sten­mark has won more World Cup slaloms, 40, be­tween 1974 and 1987.

In Bormio, Italy, Do● minik Paris made it two World Cup vic­to­ries in two days on home snow by win­ning amen’s su­per-G by the slimmest of mar­gins. Paris beat Olympic cham­pion Matthias Mayer of Aus­tria by 0.01 sec­onds for a record fourth vic­tory on the Stelvio course, eclips­ing Aus­trian greats Her­mann Maier and Michael Walch­hofer.
