    Alice Robinson is so freaking good, watch her on that final pitch, she gets to the new ski so quickly. She refuses to get caught holding on to the old ski. Really impressive skiing.

    Just took a look at her run and wow, so fluid and quick through the transition.

    She cares about one thing with regards to her professional life, winning. Showing up for red carpet events, TV interviews, publicity tours, commercial shoots, etc. takes away from training time and personal time. Given that she's probably "home' for no more than 4-8 weeks a year, max, I don't think she'd want to sacrifice a couple of those precious down days to go sit around all day at an event.
    She really does not appear to have any desire to be a mainstream celeb like Vonn or Miller. It is really clear that throughout both their careers they were angling hard for that mainstream celebrity position. I really do think their skiing suffered as a result.

    Soooo much WIN!
    Watching some of those turns again in slow-mo make you really appreciate how smooth she is through turns. She rarely has to fight through a corner which I think is really helping her to keep her body from injury.

    She got jobbed in the espy’s tonight. I get Morgan and all but as a singular athletic feat last season was a much bigger deal.

    Totally agree. Women's soccer is hot, rightfully so, and Morgan was a goal winner. But, as far as solo sports achievements, Mikaela's was on another level. Ah, well, I think she'll take it in stride.

    I think Ms. Shiffrin cares about winning races, cold hard performance, not some popularity contest most people haven't heard of.

    The ESPYs used to be something cool but IMHO the prestige of receiving one has declined along with the rest of ESPN.

    If the ESPYs were held in March, Mikaela would have won easily.

    Or even 3 weeks ago before the media hoopla of Women's Soccer.
    At least we won't hear about them until the Olympics next year, then we won't hear about them again until 2023.

    Just saw this article, it's pretty good: https://www.glamour.com/story/mikael...in-is-the-best

    One tidbit:
    Her relentless pursuit of total ski supremacy isn’t about the high of winning or the glory of clinching a spot as a once-in-a-generation athlete. She wants to be the best skier in the world simply because she loves it. “One of the things that I love so much is that I have the opportunity to inspire people to ski,” she says. “I know for a lot of people who don't ski, or are just learning how to ski, you're like, ‘Why am I doing this? It's cold, it's hard, I'm falling, I'm bruised, and tiring.’ But the feeling you get when you make a clean turn, the exhilaration you feel is so addicting. It's like nothing else on earth. It's probably like driving Formula One—except you're not in a car; you're racing down an icy mountain on two little planks at 90 miles an hour. It feels like flying, and I'm totally addicted to it. When I'm on snow, I'm like, ‘Whoa! I like this, this is cool.’”

    ^Granted, I’m probably not as good as her, but, I totally get what she is saying.

    I know exactly how she feels, except for the 90 MPH part.

    Pretty good skills but the fakeness, "Oh, my cellphone is candidly recording me, I didn't even know, #sellout..." She's a great skier! BS facial expression.
    National hero! Fake celebrity phony. Good looking gal! Rich b.... Strong athlete! Good for her to ca$h in, but it all seems phony and paid sponsorships.

    What are you talking about? She was saying "oh it already is recording, ok here i go" she then talks to the camera.

    She is a winner, strong, smart, and also gorgeous. Her facial expressions are hilarious. I turned off the vid because I didn't enjoy her singing, but who cares? Her spancers aren't paying her to sing. She's singing because she wants to.

    This made me laugh.
