Mikaela Shiffrin became the youngest person to ever win a gold medal in the slalom at the Olympics, when she won the gold medal in Sochi in 2014. And she’s well on her way to setting herself up to be in the mix for another one in 2018.
Shiffrin raced this weekend at the World Cup of Skiing at Killington and won the top podium spot in both runs of the slalom.
When 16,000 of your friends cheer you in for the win! Congratulations Mikaela Shiffrin! #beastworldcup https://t.co/vggeSAyBNe
Though Shiffrin was born in Colorado and grew up in New Hampshire, she attended school at Burke Mountain Academy in Vermont, so Vermonters will continue to root for her as the Winter Olympics close in. They begin Feb. 8th.
