Her boyfriend, Norwegian ski racer Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, commented, “The greatest skier (and human) of all time. You’re spectacular Mikaela!!!”

Shiffrin, who turns 28 on Monday, had her first victory 11 years ago, also at Åre.

The American has raced her entire career on Atomic skis, with the manufacturer supplying the skis pictured above after her record equalling run on Friday, then posting the image below from their factory on Saturday.
