82nd World Cup victory: US ski star Mikaela Shiffrin sets a record.

She draws level with her compatriot Lndsey Vonn.

Things didn't go so well for the German starters in the giant slalom.

Kranjska Gora - Ski superstar Mikaela Shiffrin has

equaled Lindsey Vonn's record

with her 82nd World Cup win.

The 27-year-old American

won the giant slalom in Kranjska Gora

ahead of Italy's Federica Brignone and Lara Gut-Behrami of Switzerland.

Two Olympic victories, six world championship titles and 82 successes in the World Cup underpin Shiffrin's supremacy in alpine skiing.

Alpine skiing: only four more wins to Stenmark

Since her downhill success in 2018, the American Vonn has led the all-time best list for women.

The

Swedish ex-ski star Ingemar Stenmark still holds the all-time record for men with 86 victories.

Shiffrin, who has already celebrated her eighth success of the season in Slovenia, should soon reach this mark as well.

As in the first giant slalom on Saturday, the German starters

Lena Dürr and Jessica Hilzinger

missed the final round of the top 30.
