Just to clarify, those five races that you listed were the five SL races that she skied on the World Cup this year, & the margin of victory.

Ski racing magazine just published an article on Mikaela Shiffrin's junior race career.  Mikaela just turned 21.  Unfortunately, this article is behind a pay wall.  There are some interesting stats in the article: 


At 21 years of age she has amassed 19 World Cup slalom wins, certainly the fastest to accomplish that. It’s pretty easy to check, because there are just six people ahead of her on the all-time slalom win list.

it also mentioned some of her race margins this year.  

Stenmark was 23. Tomba was 27. Schild was 28 and Schneider was 27. Hess was 24. Kostelic, also 24. So yes, we can say without fear of contradiction, that Shiffrin, as a junior, was “the best that ever was.”

  • Aspen 1st race: 3.07 seconds
  • Aspen 2nd race: 2.65 seconds
  • Crans Montana (first race post-injury): 0.45 of a second
  • Jasna: 2.36 seconds
  • Moritz: 2.03 seconds
