Photos (above and below) from 2/16/13 Alpine World Championships Slalom in Schladming, Austria. Hopefully, instead of flowers, Mikaela will soon be accepting a glass globe!
Tomorrow morning I will be anxiously monitoring World Cup Finals race results on my FIS mobile app – waiting to see if Mikaela Shiffrin will battle back to regain her top standing in slalom to win the season title. After losing her 33-point lead last week in the Ofterschwang slalom, she now trails Overall Champion Tina Maze by a mere seven points.
Today in Lenzerheide, Mikaela was awarded the Longines Rising Star award – recognizing her as the top young female racer of the 2013 season. Alexis Pinturault of France was the very deserving men’s recipient. Congratulations!
