Shiffrin added to his record total with his 84th win in another major slalom.

SAN VIGELIO DI MARIBE, Italy — Mikaela Shiffrin didn’t have to wait long to add to her record World Cup wins.

A day after earning record victory No. 83, Shiffrin added his 84th win in another giant slalom on the same course on Wednesday.

And just as he did the day before, Shiffrin led from start to finish, dominating the first run down the steep Aerta course and then increasing his advantage in the second run.

Shiffrin finished 0.82 seconds ahead of two-time Olympic silver medalist Raganhilde Mounkel and 1.19 ahead of Olympic champion Sarah Hector.

“Oh my God,” Shiffrin said. “I was pushing really hard and I just hoped I’d go right through all the gates. Now I’m a little dead mentally – just very tired. But when you ski like that, it’s you. Keeps the energy going so just an incredible feeling.

While Tuesday’s win moved Shiffrin past former American teammate Lindsey Vonn’s previous women’s mark of 82 victories, Wednesday’s win moved her to within two of the total — between men and women — of Ingemar Steinmark. Out of 86 wins.

Vaughan retired four years ago after injuries cut his career short, while Steinmark raced through the 1970s and 80s.

If Shiffrin wins two slaloms this weekend in Spindleruv Mlyn, Czech Republic, she could match Steinmark on Sunday at the same resort where she made her World Cup debut as a 15-year-old prodigy nearly 12 years ago. was kept
