    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.

    She actually started entering GS races the first year competing in FIS. She worked a lot on it over the off season and we can see the results. You can see her steady improvement in GS last year. Those GS results are a big reason she finished 5th overall last year (only a 40 points behind Mancuso).

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Congrats Mikaela

    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 today

    Guess all those drills skiing on one foot paid off.

    Good point. Not a very well rounded skier.

    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:

    Was finally able to find video of her two runs. Holy shit does she rip. The way she got back in the groove on the second run was beyond amazing.

    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.

    This is also a good read. Especially the embedded graphic.

    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?

    Too about about the fall at the end of her GS run yesterday, still up by .68 at the last split when she went down.

    Crushed it in the slalom today though! 3 seconds WTF?!

    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

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