Vail's Mikaela Shiffrin keeps on winning.

This time she made history while doing so.

Sunday, Shiffrin captured her first World Cup super-G, winning at Lake Louise, Canada. With that victory, Shiffrin became the first ski racer, male or female, to ever win in each of the six disciplines that are currently part of the World Cup program.

Shiffrin beat out Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel by .77 seconds and grabbed the top spot on the podium for the first time in a super-G race.

Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg was third, .83 seconds behind Shiffrin.

It was Shiffrin's 46th career World Cup win, tied for fourth all-time in women's history.
