Mikaela Shiffrin,an great sportgirl

At just 21, Mikaela Shiffrin has already achieved more than most professional skiers do in a lifetime.

In St. Moritz Saturday, Shiffrin became the first woman since Germany's

Christl Cranz back in 1939 to win three slalom World Championship golds in a row.

The US star had previously clinched the title at the 2013 and 2015 World

Championships.

Mikaela Shiffrin: What's in her skiing bag? 01:23

"People tell me about records and history and I'm starting to realize it's

amazing, especially for ski racing in the US. But today I wasn't thinking about that. I was just trying to ski fast," Shiffrin told CNN's Alpine Edge.

The youngest ever Olympic slalom champion -- Shiffrin was 18 when she won in Sochi in 2014 -- admits past success brings its own sort of pressure.

"In a way, once you win, if you don't win again it's sort of like you've lost something," she said prior to competing in Switzerland.

"After winning two World Championships, an Olympic gold and a bunch of World Cups... not winning makes me feel like I've done something wrong.

"It's sort of a greedy cycle, I guess."
