Defending Overall champion Mikaela Shiffrin (USA) became the first athlete – male or female – to win in all six individual disciplines currently contested on the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup circuit by claiming her career-first victory in super-G at Lake Louise (CAN) on Sunday.

She described the run as nearly perfect and surprised even herself with the accomplishment. The American secured her first speed victory in downhill last season at the same resort. She has now won individual World Cup races in ladies' slalom, parallel, giant slalom, super-G, downhill, and alpine combined. 

Attacking Viking Ragnhild Mowinckel (NOR) picked up her second podium of the winter and first in the speed disciplines, finishing second behind Shiffrin. Viktoria Rebensburg (GER) who has threatened for the podium in both giant slalom races this season, put down a solid run to kick off the race with bib 1 and held on for her first podium of the winter in third.

Valerie Grenier (CAN) kept local fans on their toes as she skied a blazing run from bib 32 for a career-best finish in fifth place to wrap up World Cup racing in Lake Louise for the year.

The ladies next race in St. Moritz (SUI) where they will compete in super-G on 8th December and parallel slalom on 9th December.
