Will Lindsey Vonn break an eternal record, and thus grow as a brand, in her last season? Can Mikaela Shiffrin top her athletically and financially mind-boggling winter from last year? And will Viktoria Rebensburg remain the top female earner in Germany? We take a close look at the stars of the 2018/2019 Women’s Alpine World Cup.

In tennis, soccer, and many other sports, female athletes have been struggling for years to receive the same prize money and rewards as men. In the’FIS Alpine Ski World Cup, it’s become reality ‘ at least as far as the official prize money is concerned. That’s how Overall World Cup winner Mikaela Shiffrin earned more in win bonuses last winter than her counterpart Marcel Hirscher.

Most Fit Athletes in Sports on SI’s Fittest 50 List 2019 | SI.com

It’s one of the most complex, contentious questions in sports: Who are the fittest athletes in the world? Every sport makes different demands and physiques are carved and cut and chiseled in distinct ways, but success at each often hinges on conditioning. What happens when you level the playing field and compare disparate sports?

With the help of a panel of trainers, exercise physiologists and performance experts, athletes were selected based on their performances over the last 12 months; demands and risks of their respective sports; durability; training regimens; and other physical criteria including power, speed, strength, agility, endurance, flexibility and more.’

Mikaela Shiffrin Breaks Another World Cup Record

Eight years ago, Mikaela Shiffrin started her first ever World Cup slalom race in Spindleruv Mlyn at the age of 15. On Saturday, the 23-year-old earned her 15th World Cup win of the season, breaking Vreni Schneider’s 88/89 record for most wins in a single season for any athlete, male or female.

‘If you told me eight years ago at this race ‘ my first race in World Cup ‘ that I would be in this position right now, I wouldn’t believe it,’ said Shiffrin. ‘It’s really, really special. My whole team ‘ we’re celebrating it a lot ‘ because it’s been an amazing year, it’s been an amazing career so far. But, at the same time, records are meant to be broken, and maybe me achieving this one will inspire a little girl who could beat my record someday. That’s what’s really important to me.’
