The Swede still holds the record of successes in the world cup with 86 first places (even if Mikaela Shiffrin with 69, only 25 years old, could surpass him)

Today, March 18, Ingemar Stenmark turns 65, in practice “Mister Sci” although there was a Marcel Hirscher who won 8 times (and even in a row) the absolute World Cup against the three crystal globes of the ace Swedish, preceded in this ranking by other champions, including Gustavo Thoeni. But Stenmark, a man of ice and few words, 32 years after his retirement still holds the absolute record in the “number of victories” (there are 86), even if his scalp is in the crosshairs of Mikaela Shiffrin (just 25 years old the American is already at 69) after Hirscher himself (67) and especially Lindsey Vonn, who stopped at 82 first places, spared him. But even when his primacy is beaten, Ingemar will remain immortal: it is no coincidence that his name also circulates in space thanks to an asteroid named after him.
