Earlier today (January 4, 2023):Over the years I’ve grown to love giving those of you who are interested a lens into my world, my mindset, my own personal peaks and valleys in hopes that it might resonate with someone out there. So I’m quite excited to launch this YouTube channel and a new content series with you. I’m looking forward to giving you deeper insight into my story, from my own perspective, with the enormous help and effort of a select few people who have brought this concept to life. “Moving Right Along” is about more than moving forward from a series of very challenging moments at the Beijing games, even though that’s where it begins. It’s about learning and growth. It’s about doing the right thing for the right reasons—by “right”, I mean the reasons most important to you and your values—both on the mountain and off the mountain.
Video of her 2nd slalom run today: https://twitter.com/usskiteam/status/1610733991161626627The Christmas break couldn't halt Mikaela Shiffrin's march towards history, and it turns out that the New Year's break was powerless to stop it too.
The American superstar picked up right where she left off on Wednesday, dominating the Zagreb slalom for her fifth consecutive victory and 81st World Cup win, one short of the women's record held by her former teammate Lindsey Vonn.
Shiffrin mastered the spring-like conditions to win her women's record fifth World Cup race in the Croatian capital and first since 2019, finishing ahead of Slovakia's Petra Vlhova (+0.76s) and Sweden's Anna Swenn Larsson (+1.21s).
"I had so much fun skiing today and it was really my best skiing — both runs," Shiffrin said.
"Nothing less than the best is going to work and I was taking all the risks I needed and then nailed it on the finish."
Shiffrin's winning streak includes victories in a super-G in St. Moritz before Christmas, two giant slaloms and a slalom in Semmering between Christmas and New Year, and now the first of the two Zagreb slaloms in unseasonably warm weather.
