Vlhova gold medal! Shiffrin: "Terrible moment"

Petra Vlhova won the gold medal in women's slalom at the Beijing 2022 Olympics. The Slovakian, who won the first historic medal for her country, preceded the Austrian Katharina Liensberger and the Swiss Wendy Holdener. Mikaela Shiffrin still out: 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. " Here is the order of arrival: 1 Vlhova Petra SVK 1: 44.98

Mikaela Shiffrin on 6 races in Beijing Olympics!

Mikaela Shiffrin, a very strong and beautiful US skier, is certainly the most anticipated star of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. Shiffrin has already won two golds and one silver in her two previous participations in the Winter Olympics, between Sochi and PyeongChang.

The women's alpine skiing program begins on Monday 7 February: the American could write a new page in the history of skiing, participating in all possible races, for a total of six races, as she confirmed to US Ski and Snowboard.

She said: "There aren't many reasons why I shouldn't make the descent, unless the schedule changes and fatigue starts to play a big part, becoming a security risk. The parallel is a possibility at this point. We are trying to confirm which athletes intend to stay until the end to play it.

However, we have a lot of people in the team and I want all my teammates who have come here to live their moment. 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 Kostelić, 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.
