OAR (Dagbladet): It was like a cliché from an american film. The great hero, played by Mikaela Shiffrin, the drop in the target area after having secured world cup gold for the fourth time in a row in slalom.
Shiffrin had been ill for several days, and told himself that she had trouble breathing halfway through the trail in the second half.
Then came the tears.
Shiffrin cried through the interviews on TV, thanks to his own team before she took Emma Lundell, who overcame the fight against Leukemia, up on the stage to tell that Lundell is one of her great sources of inspiration.
the 23-year-old from Vail, was the world cup queen. She took gold in slalom, gold in super-G and bronze in the giant slalom. It was the three launders she drove.
It was both dramatic and touching. But no commander of the Norwegian herrelandslaget in alpine skiing, Christian Mitter, want.Will not copy the united STATES
It will say. Both he and Skiforbundet will have winners. But not at any price. The austrian coach is using US as an example of how wrong he thinks it can go if one is just thinking at the top.
It came to pass in connection with that Mitter confirmed that there is a conflict with Henrik Kristoffersen Sunday afternoon. A conflict that had long-standing teknikktreneren Stefan Kornberger to give on the day Thursday before the Kitzbühel race in January, roughly two weeks before the world cup. He then simply no other option than to give up.
But also a conflict Mitter believes it is fully possible to solve, and that there is a dialogue about the.
So why is the Mitter out and says that he does not want the american model in the Uk?TRAINER: Christian Mitter. Photo: NTB Scanpix Show more
- We shall not end up in the situation they are in. They are dependent on the individual results. It looks good on top, but they have nothing in speed now, " explains Mitter to the Newspaper.
Sunday there were no american men in the world cup slalåmen. Behind Lindsey Vonn, who now has added up, it is very thin on the surname in speed.
And this is a nation that has had world stars like Bode Miller, Ted Ligety, Julia Mancuso and Lindsey Vonn in the last ten years. And to enjoy Shiffrin in many years.BROUGHT FORWARD: Lindsey Vonn, Mikaela Shiffrin and Julia Mancuso have all dominated the sport. Photo: NTB Scanpixd'Ampezzo, Italy, Sunday, Jan. 29, 2017.

-When ending In a, so the speed is almost dead for girls. They had four of the biggest stars, but they did not manage to build something around it. Had it been so with us, had not we taken our task seriously enough, " says Mitter.
In the world cup there are a total of fartskjøreren Bryce Bennett who is the best american in years. He is on the a 28. space. Behind follow Tommy Ford on a 37. space. Surname is Shiffrin overall superior, but behind it is thin. We must be far down on the list for the to find Laurenne Ross (57) and Paula Moltzan (62)
A simple illustration of the difference we got to see during the world cup. The Norwegian teknikklaget and fartslaget trainer hardly with each other during the season, but they know each other well. So, it is not necessarily in the united STATES. Vonn told during the world cup in Åre that she hardly speaks or knows Shiffrin. The two have been in the world together now for eight years, albeit in speed and technique.This man is the reason for henry's action against NSF team
Mikaela Shiffrin running in a large extent their own training. She has a dedicated team around him that does everything in order for her to be the best in the world. The same has the austrian superstjerna Marcel Hirscher - who also took slalåmgull during the world cup. The same has gold medalist from storslalåmen - slovenian Petra Vlhová.
And it is, according to the Dagbladet know, the Henrik Kristoffersen also fighting to get more of. He wants a freer life, training more on their own terms and more in the team. It will give him an opportunity to challenge Marcel Hirscher for the coveted sammenlagtkula.
- I'm not a world champion even if I win a world cup race. It is I not. Or, you are the world champion, but not the world's best. It is first when you win the sammenlagtkula, told Henrik Kristoffersen during the world cup.
When he won the giant slalom gold medal, " said Kristoffersen that it was a gold against all odds.
- There are some that have a little more cash money to spend, to say it like that, was 24-åringens answer, before he pointed out that he had never said that it was that which prevented him from taking the next step.
the Newspaper asked Kristoffersen that he created unrest in the national team earlier in the championship. He would not comment on the case. TV 2 was Sunday, in contact with dad Lars Kristoffersen. He had no comment at the present time.Confirms conflict
But according to TV 2 heaped it all under the Kitzbühel-week when there was a heated discussion between Lars Kristoffersen and teknikktrener Stefan Kornberger. It led to the Kornberger joined on the day.
– It has been challenging to communicate with the Team Kristoffersen. I heard what Christian Mitter said, that there was a disagreement with Kristoffersen. That's right, " says Kornberger to the TV 2.
he says He now stops as a coach for the whole team.
I'm absolutely satisfied with the decision I have taken. I thought that it was the right time to take on the day. We are going to have to see it the way and have some conversations with Christian Mitter and Claus Shake. It also needed a little time to reflect and see things from the outside, " says Kornberger to the TV 2.Henrik provokes. Alpinlaget is split Thinking long-term
But that is not the culture in Norway. Kristoffersen has since Dagbladet know got determine a part, and has been given the freedom to choose a private arrangement during the season. As he did before the world cup in Åre, when he trained at home in Marikollen, and in Trysil.
But now says thus Mitter that they are keen to make sure the rest of the team. They stand for the values of hard work, discipline, community, and to make things easy.
And it is he not interested in change.
" We're trying to add up to win skirenn, but we are keen to build a team as it gets the results about 10-15 years also. We have to care of. I know it is easy to jump on the eneren and think that all resources should go to the one person, and they get a lot of resources, but we only have people on the team who deserve to be there, " says Mitter to the Newspaper.
It is a culture that has hung with alpinlaget in nearly 30 years, and has been carried further by people like Lasse Kjus, Kjetil Andre Aamodt, Aksel Lund Image and Kjetil Jansrud.
And it has been a success. After that alpingutta themselves decided how they should behave towards each other in the group, Norway has taken the 39 world cup medals.Confirms Kristoffersen-conflict. Coach stops right before the world cup
