Shiffrin surpasses Schneider with 56th World Cup win
Annemarie Moser-Proll and Lindsey Vonn are the only women to have won more World Cup races than the in-form American 23-year-old.
Mikaela Shiffrin claimed yet another slalom victory on Saturday, winning in Maribor to move outright third on the all-time list of FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup successes.
Shiffrin equalled Vreni Schneider's haul of 55 World Cup wins with a shared giant slalom triumph at the same venue 24 hours earlier and now has 56 to her name.
Still only 23, Shiffrin trails only Annemarie Moser-Proll (62) and the retiring Lindsey Vonn (82) in terms of all-time wins.
Her victory in the slalom - by a margin of 0.77 seconds from Anna Swenn Larsson - saw the American claim a 13th World Cup win of the season. Schneider is the only woman to have ever bettered that tally, recording 14 victories in the 1988-89 campaign.
Shiffrin has now won 14 of the last 18 World Cup slalom races, including the past three in Maribor.
