FROM TEEN TALENT TO AMERICAN IDOL: HER HARMONIOUS TURNS ARE WORLD NUMBER ONES
In the space of just 1,101 days (from her first World Cup race to the World Cup final in 2014), nineteen-year-old Mikaela Shiffrin has achieved all the lifetime dreams of any slalom racer: win-ner of the Winter Olympics, winner of the World Cup, two crystal globes. From teen idol to American idol. "Skiing is like dancing," she says. Out on the slopes, her rhythm and speed are guided by the music she feels in her body. From pulsing beats to gentle ballads: Mikaela's harmonious skiing is propelling her to the top of the charts. Her next world hit appears assured, entitled Giant Slalom.
