Mikaela Shiffrin ready to sock it to them

  • Tess Arbez was set to race in the early hours of Monday morning

That made it tougher to concentrate fully, tougher to be at her best and tougher to be what she had proven to be for quite some time, which is the best female Alpine skier in the world - and with the trophies to prove it.

Flash forward two decades, and their World Cup-winning daughter is now on the verge of potentially making history at the Pyeongchang Games.

Shiffrin said that while her Sochi gold was stashed away, "I did hang up my world championships medals in my room but more because I had deadspace on my wall".

Intel drones stole the show at the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony
You might remember a similar spectacle at Lady Gaga's 2017 Super Bowl half-time show, but that only involved about 300 drones. Pyeongchang was chosen in 2011 for the event, making this the first time for South Korea to host the Winter Olympics.

Still, it's interesting to look back at the steps the Shiffrins took to instill killer skiing skills and an intense work ethic in their daughter.

Shiffrin is favored to become the first with consecutive slalom golds. "Right now I'm focusing on giant slalom and slalom and after that switching the focus to speed". I know it's a comparison between sports and I don't think there's a sport in the Winter Olympics where you can even win 23 medals across three or four Olympics. "But I'm not actually sure whether I'll have the energy to do (all) that", she says.

"Right now, we're looking at any possibility", she said.

Those setbacks followed a scintillating late December/early January when she was near unbeatable. When I get mentally exhausted, I just get more emotional.

"I would like to compete in everything", she said. "Training's been great, I'm ready to go".

Shiffrin has one medal so far. "The giant slalom is the most competitive for the women", says Rebensburg, with only Italian Deborah Compagnoni having previously won two golds (1994, 1998). "I want to medal in multiple disciplines".
