CORTINA D'AMPEZZO, Italy (AP) - By any measure, Tina Maze is dominating the World Cup ski circuit this season.

The Slovenian has six wins, 13 podium finishes and a massive 590-point lead over her closest challenger in the overall standings.

With a super-G victory in St. Anton, Austria, last weekend, Maze became the sixth woman with career wins in all five disciplines.

But then there's this: Maze wants to become the first woman to break the 2,000-point barrier. She also declared late Thursday that she believes she can join a select group of all-around skiers who have posted World Cup victories in all five disciplines in a single season.

Maze says that "you need to keep yourself motivated and always make new goals."
