Mikaela Shiffrin Biography
Mikaela Shiffrin was born March 13, 1995 and is an American World Cup alpine ski racer with the U.S. Ski Team, specializing in the technical events of slalom and giant slalom. She is the reigning Olympic, World Cup and world champion in slalom. She is the youngest ever winner of an Olympic slalom gold medal (she was 18 at the time).
Shiffrin opened her 2014 season by placing sixth in giant slalom, her career best, and within half a second of making the podium, in Slden, Austria, on October 26, 2013. She won the next event, a slalom at Levi, Finland, improving on her podium finish the previous year for her fifth World Cup victory. At Beaver Creek, she was runner-up in the giant slalom, her first World Cup podium in that event. On January 5, 2014, she secured first place in a two-run slalom race in Bormio, Italy (the race took place there instead of being, as scheduled, in Zagreb due to bad snow/weather conditions). On February 21, 2014 she won the Women's Slalom event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. She is the youngest gold medal winner for this event in Olympic history at just 18 years of age. Earlier in the week she had finished 5th in the Giant Slalom.
On February 5, 2014 Shiffrin was featured in a one-hour special on NBC television, How to Raise an Olympian. The program, hosted by Meredith Vieira, chronicled the journeys of seven U.S. Olympians and featured interviews from parents and coaches along with home video and photos from each athlete's childhood. The event was broadcast on television with live social-media components to enhance each segment.
Shiffrin was interviewed in the Late Show talkshow by David Letterman, in March 2013.
