She is an amazing skier. She just started competing in GS this year (on the WC) and places 6th and 2nd! Looking forward to seeing her compete in all 4 disciplines eventually.

So, she has nothing left to do in the SL world.

enjoyed watching your SL tonight. you will go far. Nice recovery. not to often you hear I was going to fast into that flush and had to recover. IE I was killing it so fast and the course switched to a flush where you gain speed and I kept it together to win GOLD.
awesome performance todayPOWDER SKIER

Guess all those drills skiing on one foot paid off.

That was a impressive display of maturity, and skill in that second run.
Here is some local news flavor:
And a story from when she was a freshman at BMA:

Shiffrin in women's slalom and Ted in GS were the two most impressive alpine performances in Sochi IMO... but I missed the men's super-G (about to watch now).

Looks like she finished making the post Olympic publicity rounds and is back in Europe to finish out the WC season.

1st race of the season, 1st career GS win. Not bad. Will she be able to make a run at the overall title this year?

Won by 2.65 with an edge catch at the start of run two. Pretty fucking dominant.
