Alice Robinson makes epic return to the top at the FIS Ski World Cup
Kiwi Free Skier, Alice Robinson, becomes the first woman to win three world cups before turning 20-years-old.
Alice Robinson finished the 2020–21 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup season with a brilliant giant slalom victory over Mikaela Shiffrin at Lenzerheide, Switzerland.
New Zealand's Robinson earned a second place in the recent Jasná giant slalom in Slovakia and she finished fourth in Sunday's first run in Switzerland, as Shiffrin held an impressive 0.77s lead over her.
The 19-year-old produced a superb second run however to put pressure on Shiffrin, who couldn't respond and finished 0.28s behind the teenager, with Slovenian Meta Hrovat third to end the season.
Robinson made her world cup debut, just two seasons ago at age 15, finishing in second place as the junior world champion invitee.
She is also the first woman since the 1980s to win three World Cup races before turning 20. The last to hold the title was Slovenian alpine skier, Mateja Svet.
