Alpine ski superstar Mikaela Shiffrin has failed in her intentions in Beijing, but it seems that she will soon forget about this adventure and is already considering the Milan-Cortina Olympics "I love the Cortina," she said exclusively to Olympics.com, "I love competing there."

In four years, anything can happen, but Shiffrin seems to have a lot of optimism in herself and believes that she can do a lot. "It's four years from now, so it's hard to say for sure," she says, "but I would make that a goal to get there and to get there in strong form."
