NEO SPEED QUEEN MIKAELA EQUALS BODE MILLER
The Atomic teamwork also led to a historical victory in Lake Louise as well. Mikaela Shiffrin raced to 3rd place in her 3rd World Cup downhill to-date on Friday on her brand colleague’s, Mauro Caviezel, skis and won her fourth race on Saturday! “After a skiing mistake I nearly gave the safety net a ‘High Five,’” the World Cup leader explained (who is now 174 points in the lead), and now leading the downhill ranking as well. “It’s great that the service crew works so well together. A day that we will remember for a long time”. Christian Höflehner alluded that Mikaela is now “only” missing a Super G win, to be able to show a win in all disciplines, as only the 7th World Cup female skier ever in history. Will it be possible to fill this gap this weekend in St. Moritz? Possibly. The Shiffrin clan will only be able to decide about the other races once they arrive in Europe. One thing is certain: World Cup success number 33 notched Mikaela up to the same level as Bode Miller. And: with snowboard Olympic winner Ester Ledecka (CZE) 7th in the 2nd run) and Breezy Johnson (USA) 10th in the 1st run) two other Redster girls achieved their all-time best results to-date.
