Mikaela Shiffrin The new queen of the white circus!

If we decide to talk about women in sports, and in this case, mountain sports related to snow such as skiing, we cannot stop talking about the American Mikaela Shiffrin. This twenty-five-year-old athlete from Vail, Colorado, United States, has won two Olympic gold medals, three World Championships, three World Cup Overall, 6 World Cups in Slalom discipline, one in Super G and one in Giant Slalom.

A total of 91 podiums in the Alpine Ski World Cup. Just naming all these things is already scary, but Mikaela is the youngest skier in history to win 2 Crystal Globes and an Olympic Gold Medal in the discipline of Slalom.

Without a doubt, she is one of the great women in the history of skiing. She is known by many as the "new queen" of the white circus. Measures 1. 70 meters and weighs 66 kilos of fiber and muscle. He comes from a family of ski racers, since his parents, Jeff and Eileen Shiffrin, competed in the Masters Circuit and his older brother, Taylor, competed for the University of Denver, so it seems that the passion for this sport “comes from family".

This athlete has won more events in a calendar year than any other skier.

For many, Mikaela Shiffrin doesn't ski, she “flies over the snow”. When, at just 19 years old, Shiffrin wins the World Cup in Are (Sweden). After achieving the victory, the media pressure hung over her, who only thought of being with her family and celebrating her first victory. Since its inception, Shiffrin has been characterized not only by its respect for its rivals, but has also been interested when one of them has fallen or when it has beaten them by hundredths. In Grandvalira, for example, he gave the spotlight for a few minutes to Frida Hansdotter, a Swedish skier who has put an end to her sports career. And it's just one of the details he had in the Andorra Finals. Since she was a little girl, Mikaela has marked her skis and helmet with the following letters: ABFTTB: “Always Be Faster Than The Boys”. He likes to watch men to learn their aggressiveness and often trains with some of the best, like Marcel Hirscher.

Mikaela Shiffrin isn't obsessed with achieving Ingemar Stenmark's record 82 wins, like her predecessor Lindsey Vonn did. On the other hand, he is very aware that his pending subject is the Descent. There have been many occasions in which the skier from Vail has had to answer this question and she has always done it in the same sense: "someday I will run the Descent". When he does, he sure as hell won't let his fans down. For now, she is SuperG World Champion.

she is the snow queen. He has won the Great Globes for the past two seasons, and is on his way to winning the third, which gives an idea of ​​his versatility. This title is awarded to the best skier, once the points of all the specialties have been added up. No one –neither in the men's nor the women's categories– has reaped so much success at the age of 23. He already accumulates 52 victories in the World Cup; the most, 37, in slalom. When she broke the record of 35 slaloms held by Austrian Marlies Schild, who retired in 2014, she had a bittersweet feeling for surpassing a figure she revered as a child and to whom she apologized, in a gesture that reflects her humanity. "Hopefully," she said, "my records will not last long: that means that I have also inspired other athletes." And, as if that were not enough, in 2018 she achieved 15 World Cup victories, a figure that no other skier had ever achieved in a calendar year. or skier, since he also surpassed the 14 victories of the Austrian Marcel Hirscher.

But not everything has been easy in the life of this professional athlete. The double Olympic champion and 5-time world champion in alpine skiing has revealed that she has been fighting anxiety and stage fright since 2014: mental training and "music" have been the main tools to overcome panic and its psychological downturns . “I never thought that I could have problems due to the pressure of performance and the expectations created, but that is exactly what happened to me. I had to learn to control my emotions, stress and my head", explained the USA sportswoman, who is now 25 years old and for whom "mental health is essential", in high-competition sport and on a daily basis.

For all reasons, from the Uller team we recognize this professional skier as a pure inspiration for our riders and we marvel at her sporting career and all that she has achieved and will achieve over the years. In November of last year he returned to the competition 11 months later, since last season he won the super giant held at the Bulgarian resort of Bansko last January, and the last slalom in which he took part was that of Flachau (Austria). ) on January 14, in which she finished third. It must be remembered that Mikaela lost a good part of last season after the death of her father.
