The Beijing 2022 Olympics for now are almost a nightmare for Mikaela Shiffrin. After the exit in the giant slalom, she also goes out in the slalom. No medals for one of the big gold favorites. After the second consecutive defeat, the American said in the press conference: "I was pushing off the exit gate and I had every intention of skiing as hard as I could, but I slipped into a corner a bit.
Most aggressive line, most challenging line to ski. It's a pretty terrible time, it won't be terrible forever. I feel pretty down right now." But now let's discover some curiosities about the beautiful American skier: loves, passions, victories.
Mikaela is a big fan of tennis and soccer. She is a great admirer of Roger Federer, and a fan of Italian Serie A club Juventus.
Mikaela Shiffrin: gossip, passion, curiosity
In the past she has posted a video and a photo of her dribbling with Szczesny gloves before the match between Juventus and Ajax in the UEFA Champions League, adding: "Fingers crossed for the quarter-finals.
Good luck! Come on Juve!" But you also starred in a Barilla commercial with Roger Federer. In May 202 she announced that she was romantically linked to the Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, winner of the 2020 World Cup. From 2017 to 2019 she had a love story with the French skier Mathieu Faivre.
Regarding the diet, Mikaela is a pasta enthusiast. In April 2021 you posted a photo on social media to celebrate Carbonara Day, the day dedicated to one of the specialties of Italian cuisine. 10 hours of sleep, from 9pm to 7am, nap before the race, two toast and two eggs for breakfast.
In regards to training out the ski slope, Shiffrin practices plank for the abdominals, exercises for strengthening the legs, cardio exercises on the beach and pilates. We recall that she is a specialist in technical disciplines, but has proven to be competitive even in fast ones, so much so that she is among the seven female skiers with Petra Kronberger, Pernilla Wiberg, Janica KosteliÄ, Anja Pärson, Lindsey Vonn and Tina Maze able to win in all five specialties and the only one able to do it in six, with the parallel slalom.
She holds two Olympic titles (special slalom in Sochi 2014 and giant slalom in Pyeongchang 2018) and six world championships (special slalom in Schladming 2013, in Vail / Beaver Creek 2015 and in Sankt Moritz 2017 supergiant and special slalom in Åre 2019 and combined in Cortina d 'Ampezzo 2021).
In her palmarès she also boasts three general World Cups, a supergiant World Cup, a giant slalom World Cup and six special slalom World Cups.
