Ingemar stenmark's record of 86 victories in world cup is still intact.

Lindsey Vonn hunted and hunted, but when the american Sunday ended his career she stayed at 82 wins.

But the record can hang loosely again if only a couple of years. If världscupdominanterna Marcel Hirscher (Austria) and Mikaela Shiffrin (USA) continues its vinstkavalkad.

Hirscher has taken 68 gold. Soon as the 24-year-old Shiffrin 56.

it has a gold (super-G) and a bronze (giant slalom) in the village of Åre, has only in the winter won 13 world cup events. Hirscher? Ten.

In the week Hirscher been bedridden with flu, but on Friday, stepping he – if he is healthy enough – in in the championship in Åre.

the Men's giant slalom are on the program, and here is Hirscher both the reigning world and OLYMPIC gold medalist.

"He has everything, the physics and the mental," says Ingemar Stenmark on the austrian.

" he Makes a bad förstaåk he can always come back in the second run. And he makes a poor race, he doesn't become stressed by it. He comes back and wins.

world CHAMPIONSHIPS-gold medalist Anja Pärson, who was also on location at Åre, can only agree with.

– It is incredible how stable he (Hirscher) can be, even if it is icy or tough, " says Pärson.

" He always changes the technology and can change it also during the actual run. It is great to see.

Ingemar Stenmark again:

" What is impressive is that she can go all the disciplines. If you compare her technique with the guy's technique is almost as good. Often will, perhaps, not the girls up in the same class as the guys, but I think she can beat a lot of guys.

learn to smoke in the future is nothing like the 62-year-old think is too boring.

" It was only when I was still active that did I care about the record. Then I stopped to care I am not actually on it, " says Stenmark.

" And I think that it is so difficult to compare the records from today with the record from before. It is easier in the running, or perhaps pole vaulting, where you can see a time or a number.

talk of the alpine record, it is Shiffrin, who is already in years can touch the Stenmark in one respect.

if you're Counting just slalomsegrar has some 38 pieces, Stenmark 40.

After the world CUP remains two traditional slalomtävlingar in the world cup.

Records are there to be broken, " said Shiffrin to the AP in december, when she passed the previous the record-holder in the women's events – österrikiskan Marlies Schild – in the number of slalomsegrar.

– In the future someone will, in turn, to beat my record, I hope. If I can inspire young skiers to it, I have done my job.
