    Guy, how would you know that, and how can you quantify that? I can't say anyone trains harder than her, because what I know of her training (direct from both past and present coaches) is that she...

    Shiffrin was always known as a training animal. Her parents instilled this in her and she was (is) naturally driven anyway. If you ever speak with anyone who coached her, even at a very young age,...

    She will not have a problem. Her parents/agents have a plan for handling this and will tell NBC where to get off, if necessary. NBC will get what they need, Shiffy will get what she needs (probably...

    Never occurred to me that VT would have disproportionately more female coaches. I am trying to remember female coaches from other states I have seen and can only think of a few.

    Heh, my guess is that that certain athlete's mother gets her way soon. Would that ultimately be Tiger Shaw's call?

    FWIW, here in Southern VT there are a (small) handful of female coaches, and I...

    I actually thought the SL would be much worse. He actually didn't look much worse than when you see some DH specialists in a combined getting crushed by the SL specialists. And I think Gavaggio beat...

    Yeah, I was pretty sure FIS racing for an American would be impossible without USSA, I just didn't want to make the blanket statement as I've never looked into it (but AFAIK it was required and...

    Is that possible for an American ski racer? Regardless, he would show up on FIS.

    Based on those videos it's pretty much impossible that he would be anything but DFL in a FIS race. 100 points is...

    Well, I don't have any idea who that guy is or why he posted that drill. Too bad Shiffy doesn't know about the javelin drill--she'd be a successful racer if only...

    I actually coach with a guy who is pals with Mikaela's coach (sometimes we get to use the video that he prepares for her, which is pretty cool). I know for a...

    I've seen her ski dozens of races and not noticed this. Will take another look. I did know about the boot switch.

    Really? I don't know much (anything?) about current PSIA crap (when I was about 18 I did a level 1 CSIA thing, for some reason), but that seems weird to me.

    Also worth noting that in current ski...

    Yeah, several years ago I posted almost exactly what you posted here (minus the recent stats). When I saw her move into GS, even before she won, I pretty much knew she could become the most dominant...

    Depends on your definition of buried. Based on what I know of splits from combined men's/women's training I would guess she might be as high as the 30's in a men's field. I know Vonn has been in...

    Daron Rahlves was tiny compared to the average guy in DH and made it work...I don't think Fenninger is that big. Sure, a disadvantage on gliding courses, but in SG and technical DH courses I think...

    She was born in Vail, but both her parents are from/raced in VT (I believe), and she was always a VARA (VT racing) racer growing up. Her father worked at Dartmouth and was always pretty involved in...
