    So that is what she was referencing with her comments on "the last 11(?) days have been challenging". She posted herself icing the knee post race on Instagram

    She had an MRI and they were legit worried she’d messed it up, dodged a bullet. Amazing she was able to win even if it was really because Petra skied out.

    Just an amazing skier. From the very beginning she had a turn like no other.

    Does anybody have a link to Shiffrin freeskiing, bumps or steeps?

    I'm geeking out right now on Deb Armstrong vids. Ski racer -> psia, working well for me early season on the manmade snow. Also watching the racer kids, love how they ski.

    She is the best. Her videos gave me the tools I needed to get my girl over some humps.

    hey, Mir, I don't think your going to find much footage of MS skiing bumps or steeps -
    I've seen a couple of clips as she is skiing toward a training course, or away from a training course,
    But as a five events racer, and from what I have read, MS's skiing is pretty-much All-Business. !
    I have seen some clips of her training SuperG or DH were she takes significant Air, and thought,

    ' You Go ! (Girl) ! !! '

    And
    from what I have read, she is very approachable and accommodating for kids...

    If I can find some of that Speed event training tomorrow, I'll try to post a link.

    ' hope your season is off to a good start !

    I keep turning this statement over in my mind, I am very curious, specifically why and how she is different? I'm watching footage, but I don't have any eye for racer nuances. I learned how to do movement analysis on recreational skiers, which is fun and easy from the chairlift, haha. The only thing I can really see easily with the racer kids is different degrees of lateral extension.

    TY for the links skiJ, will watch. I already watched the first one, my reaction was "smoove".

    Currently still working through Moving Right Along on youtube, pretty fascinating. She has a SWEET house in Edwards where she only lives for two months, it's basically for her family and her trophies and medals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gTOs0luzHY

    I think the best difference is to watch her from the side. She is never unbalanced. Always centered with incredibly precise forward movements for initiation and heel pressure for acceleration at the end. Always in control

    The main thing that distinguishes her IMO is consistency. Always in control, always balanced, always making precise turns. Especially important in SL where there’s two runs and a ton of gates - lots of opportunities to make a mistake.

    Such an incredibly smooth second run for Shiffrin. The crowd cheering her to the finish was loud as shit - has to just jack her up.

    Yeah glad she beat Vlhova head to head. Also liked seeing the Sendy Wendy sign in the crowd, always liked Holdener

    Shiffrin

    I mean, you really have to appreciate the fact that we’re living in a time when there’s Mikaela Shiffrin and Simone Biles competing. Enjoy it.
