The talented American alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin joined the Longines family in 2014.
Mikaela was introduced to the world of alpine skiing at the age of 3 through her parents Eileen and Jeff who have been very supportive throughout her career. Since her very first race, aged just 15, at the World Cup in March 2011, she has simply just excelled. Olympic, World Cup and World Champion in her discipline, slalom, Mikaela Shiffrin is already one of that very small elite: today’s top female skiers.
Mikaela also won the Longines Rising Ski Stars prize for the three last consecutive years – the 2012/2013, 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 seasons. This prize, organized by Longines, is awarded to the best female skier under the age of 21 and the best male skier under the age of 23 of the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup.
