Happy Birthday, Tina Maze
By Lizzie Haldane
Tina Maze had the most statistically dominant World Cup year since it began in 1967.
Skiing sensation Tina Maze turned 30 today. The Slovenian set a world record in March with 2,414 World Cup points, topping Hermann Maier’s record of 2,000, and claiming the overall giant slalom title. The 2014 season starts in six months, and we can be sure that Maze will be hungry after finishing second to the injured Lindsey Vonn in the downhill and second behind American teen Mikaela Shiffrin in the slalom.
