Colorado’s Mikaela Shiffrin pulled off a remarkable feat this past weekend in Aspen. At the age of 22 she earned the title of youngest skier ever to win the overall title in skiing's World Cup since 2003.

And she joins Phil Mahre, Tamara McKinney, Bode Miller and Lindsey Vonn as the only American overall World Cup champions.
