Mikaela Shiffrin is expected to race for the first time since the Olympics, returning to the Alpine skiing World Cup for an overall title battle, live on Olympic Channel and Peacock this weekend.

Shiffrin and years-long rival Petra Vlhova of Slovakia are tied atop the standings for the World Cup overall title, the biggest annual prize in the sport.

After sitting out last week’s downhills, both skiers are expected to return for a super-G and giant slalom in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, on Saturday and Sunday. The overall crystal globe will likely be decided at the season-ending World Cup Finals in two weeks in France.

Shiffrin won three consecutive World Cup overall titles in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Vlhova is the reigning champion.

With a fourth crown, Shiffrin can tie Lindsey Vonn for second place in women’s history, trailing only Austrian Annemarie Moser-Pröll, who won six in the 1970s.

Also this week, the storied world allround speed skating championships, along with sprint worlds, take place at the Viking Ship in Hamar, Norway.
