Mikaela Shiffrin concluded the World Cup season by setting another record in Andorra on Sunday.

Shiffrin, 28, won the giant slalom by six-hundredths of a second over Norway's Thea Louise Stjernesund to record her 14th World Cup win of the season. It was the 88th win of her career, now two ahead of Ingemar Stenmark in the record books for the most victories by a World Cup alpine skier.

She broke the career record set 34 years ago by Stenmark last weekend in Are, Sweden.

Her win on Sunday also gives Shiffrin a record 21 World Cup wins in the giant slalom event.

Shiffrin recorded 17 wins in the 2018-19 season, her most ever.
