Out against the Vonns world cup criticism

Mikaela Shiffrin (23) coasted down to world CHAMPIONSHIP gold medals in super-G on Tuesday. So disappeared she from the Oar and went to Trysil. Competitor Lindsey Vonn and the current alpineksperten Bode Miller was critical. Argument: She should not dropped the world cup race, but rather gone for the victory in all the exercises.

Now turn Shiffrin back on Instagram:

I must say I'm flattered over your comments from the Bode and Lindsey, who I believe would have been a contender in the five exercises during the world cup. But - as the only one who has tried himself in all of the games this season and won in all five - I can tell that none of the victories have been easy, writing Shiffrin.

- To believe that I could have taken four or five medals, that would honestly have been disrespectful to the other. Their talent and abilities and the work they have laid down. A 23-year-old, I understand the potential and my limitations. I have definitely learned that arrogance is not going to dictate my expectations and goals, she writes.

Was over

American Shiffrin - who has four world CHAMPIONSHIP gold medals and two OLYMPIC gold medals - stood over the combination Friday. She dropper also utforen Sunday, and is expected back to Åre on Monday.

Escaped to Norway

Friday signaled Vonn obvious that she was critical to the Shiffrins decision:

She could have won it all. I'm an alpinist, and I want to be with in all of the launders I can. I respect her decision. It is obviously her decision. But she has the potential and the ability to take a medal in all five disciplines. So personally I understand it not. Hopefully - and it is, I'm sure - as she takes gold in the giant slalom and slalom.

Also, Bode Miller was on the pitch:

the People around her take the decisions they feel is best. I will not criticize them, but I would clearly that she should have been with.


The main reason that Shiffrin is above the forth, will be what happened during the OLYMPICS in Pyeongchang last winter. When she was stressed out by the constant delays and changes in the program.

the Gold in the giant slalom was followed up with a fourth place in slalom where she was storfavoritt. She finished with the silver in the combination.

This season, she has won 13 verdenscuprenn in four different exercises: Slalom, super-G, parallellslalåm and giant slalom. Swiss Vreni Schneider has the record from 1988-1989 with 14 victories.


On Instagram, type Shiffrin:

my Goal is to be a true challenge every time I set to start. I want a career with longevity and that I can see me back and say: I was able to fight and fight for the top positions, rather than to be put on from the sidelines. Either because I was burned out or injured because I pushed myself too far.

She continues:

- Many people think that I approach a career that no one has managed in the past. People don't understand. But you know what? It is perfectly fine for me. Because I'm me, and no other.

the giant slalom for women will be staged on Thursday. After the gold on Tuesday told Shiffrin to the German ARD:

- It is not I who should be world champion in super-G. It feels like a dream. I bet, so much so that I almost drove off a port.
