Mikaela Shiffrin

Women

Mikaela Shiffrin hails from Vail, Colorado and is now a standout American alpine skier. She made a name for herself with a spectacular breakthrough in front of a home crowd, finishing eighth in just her second World Cup slalom start. Shiffrin began turning heads almost instantly when she finished in the top 15 of her first two NorAm Cup races.

    Posted over 1 year ago by John Ohail

    Often when professional athletes are contemplating the perfect time to end his or her career, the thought of “going out on a high note,” comes into play. In other words, bowing out gracefully after a huge win, a championship or a massive personal accomplishment becomes the ultimate time to hang up the boots.
