WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02), co-chair of the Bipartisan Ski and Snowboard Caucus, honored Mikaela Shiffrin, the most decorated skier of all time, on the House floor. On March 11, 2023, Shiffrin broke the record for the most World Cup wins, becoming the most decorated alpine skier ever, male or female.
Kuster’s full remarks are available here and printed below.
Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
I rise today as co-chair of the Bipartisan Ski and Snowboard Caucus to recognize the incredible achievements of New Hampshire’s own Mikaela Shiffrin, the most decorated skier of all time!
On March 11, 2023 – during Women’s History Month – Mikaela broke the record for the most World Cup alpine wins by any skier, male or female, earning 87 championship wins and securing her place in history.
Shortly after, she won another title, breaking her own record and making history, again.
I love having a woman be the most decorated skier in the world!
From her earliest days, when I met her at the Dartmouth Ski Way and first watched her race with her late father, my friend Jeff, Mikaela has taken the world by storm.
Her record-breaking win and dedication to the sport will inspire women and girls across the country and around the world.
Thank you, Mikaela, for inspiring us to be nice, think first, and have fun.
I yield back.
