Mikaela Shiffrin is on some kind of roll.

Tuesday morning U.S. time, Shiffrin continued her amazing run by winning the super-G gold medal at the World Championships in Are, Sweden.

Shiffrin was .02 seconds better than Sofia Goggia of Italy. Corinne Suter of Switzerland took the bronze, only .05 seconds behind Shiffrin. The top six skiers were separated by only .16 seconds.

Shiffrin now has four career World Championships gold medals. This is her first in super-G.

American Lindsey Vonn, in her final competition, crashed into a gate and did not finish. Vonn was able to slowly ski down the hill and told NBC she is still planning on competing in Sunday's Downhill. That will be the final race of her illustrious career.


Here is Shiffrin's gold medal run.
