Swedish skier Anja Pärson

Anja Pärson tears up record books at Alpine Ski Championships

The Swede became the first female skier in history to win gold in all five disciplines.

The 25 year old has now taken 3 gold medals in front of her home crowd up at Åre in Northern Sweden.

Pärson made history when she saw off the challenge of Lindsey Kildow to win the downhill on Sunday. She’s now won the super-G, the super-combined and the downhill at Åre and has the chance for further gold in the technical events, the slalom and giant slalom.

Sunday was a great day all round for the Swedish Alpine team; Patrik Järbyn became the first swede to win a medal in the men’s downhill. The 37 year old claimed a bronze.
