Mikaela Shiffrin 2017

Our Sportswoman of the Year became the first woman to win three slalom World Championship golds in a row. In December, Shiffrin celebrated a World Cup slalom win in Killington, Vermont with her 95-year-old grandmother, Nana cheering her on. Mikaela then headed west to Aspen where she celebrated her World Cup Slalom Championship. Later that same day, she officially won the overall World Cup Slalom Title.
