    How many more races for her this season? Maybe she can break the all time WC victory record before she turns 24.

    With three gates to go, I was thinking there was no way she was going to win that. And even when they got to the line I was thinking she didn't but she somehow got the first few inches of her ski across the line first. I looked for but couldn't find a still shot of the view along the finish line.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Crazy how she knew she could make it all up in one gate or turn.

    Obviously Vlhova is not as fast because her skis are not as red.

    Tina Maze's 2012-2013 season where she scored a record 2414 overall points was probably the earliest the title had been clinched. Second place was Maria Hoefl-Reisch with 1101 points.
    However, determining the exact date of "wrapping up the title" is difficult. Somewhere, someone has probably figured it out.

    Sorry for the crappy quality. I didn't want to film it but my daughter made me do it.

    If you watch the replay, Vlhova tucked and dove for the finish line after the 2nd to last gate. Shiffrin made an extra mini turn to get one last impulse. Click image for larger version.

    I think one of the keys to winning those parallel slaloms is the drops. MS in balance when she lands and gets on edge quickly for next gate. All the others seem to land on tails and are off balance --> late on next gate and then in trouble for the one after that.

    Most people are clueless about how to accelerate out of a turn. So fun watching the time made up by using the energy from a bent ski.

    Let's see a floppy clown shoe skier do that!

    Reverse camber ski skier, no directional nor speed control, packed snow, back past their heels, tips and tails flapping as they terrorize everyone else.

    i.e. Dumb ass.

    he's talking about me. and he's right. shiffrin bends a ski better than me, regardless of whether i'm wearing my clown shoes, or a ski he approves of.

    One of Mikaela's most underrated(?) traits is her balance on her skis. The only other skier I can think of offhand who has a similar innate sense of balance is Hirscher. Vonn doesn't have it, Bode didn't have it, Ted doesn't have it, Kristofferson doesn't have it (all the time at least), etc.

    Seeing Mikaela get back for more than 2 gates is something I can't even remember seeing. She has a turn here or there but she's almost immediately back on her skis after it. It's just simply incredible to watch.

    I can't remember what Janica Kostelic skied like but she may be the only other female in recent memory who could be comparable to Shiffrin when it comes to this.

    that's the thing about balance. you don't really notice it until it's gone. you never really notice it at all with her.
