American skier Mikaela Shiffrin is arguably the most dominant athlete in sport right now. The 24-year-old has taken skiing by storm this season, winning 17 World Cup races across four of the six disciplines to take her overall tally to 60 victories. Here's a look back at her short but sweet career so far.

2011 – The American (right) secured her first World Cup medal in December 2011, winning a bronze in the slalom. Her potential didn't go unnoticed as she was named rookie of the year.
