ATB was well represented with Megan taking a special award for "Achievement" and our own Lacey Henderson, our Para-Olympics superstar, giving an inspirational speech to the 350+ crowd and then presenting the awards to all of the recipients. Lacey was certainly the most photographed woman of the evening! The quality of the athletic performances by all of these women in their areas of sport was astounding, to say the least. The 2014 Colorado Sportswoman of the Year was Mikaela Shiffrin, the 17 (soon to be 18) year old skiing sensation and now Olympic Gold Medalist from Eagle-Vail.

Missy Franklin, Mikaela Shiffrin become Colorado's golden girls - The Denver Post
I have enjoyed the Olympics more than I expected to. (Expectation?) The controversies aside there have been some amazing performances. My faves so far, mostly on the slopes as skiing was/is my sport: 1. Bode Miller winning probably his last medal. Wish it had been downhill but always rooting for the Franconia boy! On the edge! 2. The aerials in general but Mac Bohonnon not even on the team, barely missing the cut for the final four and coming in 5th and learning this quad triple in Socchi. Amazing 3. In the Ice Dancing, such a subjective judgement, but I enjoyed the Canadians Moire and Virtues long program much more than Davis and White's. The Canadians were so much more artistic and emotional and technically they were pretty even. 4. Mikaela Shiffrin's win in the slalom, the competition didn't stand a chance. The future of US womens skiing. 5. Ted Ligety's Gold in the GS. After Vancouver, this season and the win are a fair argument that he's the best ever. 6. Canadian Mark McMorris's second qualifier i . ...
The great, contrasting stories of Mikaela Shiffrin and Viktor Ahn
So many inspirational moments at the Olympics. Love this commercial statement "At Liberty Mutual, we believe with every setback, there's a chance to comeback.and rise!".

Congrats, Mikaela Shiffrin! The recovery she made on her second run was insane. Give me 3 or 4 months to work out, I could do that. Also, is it me, or did Viktor Ahn become annoying?
Mikaela Shiffrin you're awesome! Colorado women always are! Peggy Fleming, Amy Van Dyken, Lindsey Vonn, and Missy Franklin all welcome you to Colorado Olympic Champions club!
Wow, Colorado does a good job at producing young 18-year-old American Olympian phenom. From Missy Franklin, now to Mikaela Shiffrin

Missy Franklin and now Mikaela Shiffrin ... good job Colorado
FLASH POST! Colorado has lots of athletes in the Sochi games. From Vail, 18-year-old Mikaela Shiffrin has a lot of expectations on her young shoulders (remind anyone of Missy Franklin??).

Sochi Olympics 2014: Day 12 Pulling yet another podium sweep -- 60% of their medals in these games have been earned in that fashion -- the Dutch leapt to the top of the leaderboard temporarily. The second USA medal of the day forced a tie at the top. Russia picked up one, and Canada a pair, but our friends to the north slipped a spot thanks to three Norwegian podium spots.

The Winter Olympics are a ton of fun but if you know who Lindsey Vonn is and not who Mikaela Shiffrin (she is participating in the games and is a current World Champion unfortunately models less and doesn't date tiger Woods...yet another conquering achievement) is then you better ask yourself why? Not a Vonn hater but just prefer celebrating achievement over celebrity when we get a chance.
Move over, Lindsey Vonn—at just 18, skier Mikaela Shiffrin is generating massive buzz ahead of the 2014 Olympics in February, heading America’s strongest team in years.

Russia (AP) — A look at the sports for the Sochi Olympics: ___ Alpine Skiing: THE BASICS After missing the first three Winter Olympics, Alpine Skiing joined the program in 1936. Ten gold medals will be awarded in Sochi, five for men and five for women — downhill, slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom (usually called super-G) and super combined. STARS TO WATCH With Lindsey Vonn out injured, the 18-year-old American many call "The Next Lindsey Vonn," Mikaela Shiffrin, will attract plenty of attention as the favorite to win the slalom. Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany, a double gold medalist at the 2010 Vancouver Games, and Lara Gut of Switzerland, who'll be making her Olympic debut, could dominate other races. Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway already enjoys rock-star status in Europe, while 36-year-old Bode Miller, owner of five Olympic medals, and Ted Ligety, who won three titles at last year's World Championships, will also be ones to watch from the U.S. team.

Mikaela Shiffrin Of US Is 2nd In Giant Slalom by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS December 01, 2013 6:03 PM Beaver Creek, Colo. (AP) — As she glided closer and closer to the finish line, Mikaela Shiffrin heard the roars, the ringing cow bells and the raucous music from the loud speaker. Spurred on, she turned it on. And when Shiffrin crossed the line, the roaring took on new life as her name appeared at the top of the scoreboard. Up top in the starting gate, Jessica Lindell-Vikarby of Sweden, the last skier left, heard it all. She knew Shiffrin had done something special. Then she went out and spoiled the party. Lindell-Vikarby won a World Cup giant slalom Sunday, holding off the 18-year-old Shiffrin with a fluid final run. The Swede finished the two runs on a demanding Beaver Creek course in 2 minutes, 17.92 seconds, with Shiffrin 0.09 seconds behind. Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein took third. All the noise down low didn't appear to rattle Lindell-Vikarby, who won a World Cup race for the first time since 2009. " ...

Adding to Team Afton's impressive post season qualifying run, where 18 skiers qualified for spots at U14 and U16 Junior Championships at Winter Park and Beaver Creek, as well as the U18 Nationals at Mammoth Mountain, CA, Team Afton has qualified 3 athletes to the US National Alpine Championships being held later this month at Squaw Valley, CA. This is US Skiing's premiere event - showcasing US Ski Team talent and World Cup champions such as Mikaela Shiffrin and Ted Ligety. Only 5 qualifiers from the Midwest were selected - and 3 are Team Afton! Raised at Team Afton, Jake and Max Lund now coach for Team Afton and still know how to throw it down the hill. Jake skied with the US Ski Team before attending Middlebury College. Max recently graduated from St. Olaf College where he lead the Ole's with several USCSA All-American titles. Both have qualified for the US Nationals several times. Elizabeth Koprucki started her racing career on Afton's DTeam and further blossomed on Team Afton USSA. Elizabeth is this ye ...

yeah like Mikaela Shiffrin fron the us. She won the ladies slalom and is younger than me...
The Winter Olympics in Sochi are less than a year away, and no sooner than American skiing superstar Lindsay Vonn suffered a gruesome knee injury, another young phenom has stepped forward to capture the American public’s attention. Her name is Mikaela Shiffrin, and she may be thOn Saturday, 17-year-old Shiffrin captured the slalom World Championship. She finished her run in Schlamding, Austria (sidenote: Is Schlamding the best named ski site in the world? Prep Rally votes yes) with a time of 1:39.85, 0.22 seconds faster than Austrian hometown hero Michaela Kirchgasser in the 2013 World Championships. There were 30,000 fans in attendance to watch Shiffrin become the eighth youngest skiing World Champion in any discipline all-time. The Vermont-based teen is the third youngest slalom champion, and the youngest in nearly 30 years (since 1985, when American Diann Roffe won the slalom, also at age 17). Fittingly, the Vail, Colorado-born teen was beside herself after the upset victory. "It's such a crazy day," ...
Watch this star - 17 y/o took home slalom gold medal at the World Championships
There is no doubt now whom the U.S. media will choose as the fresh-faced star in the run-up to the 2014 Winter Olympics .
Mikaela Shiffrin, new 17-year-old slalom World Champion, may be the Winter Games’ Missy Franklin |
Because the NBA, off-season Baseball and off-season Football are so important, most of us probably missed that Ted Ligety won 3 gold medals (out of 5 total events) at the FIS World Championships, and that Mikaela Shiffrin (who is only 17, and trained in Vail) won the women's Slalom as well. The US had 4 Gold Medals at the worlds, no other country had more than 2. (Take that Austria) Ligety's feat has only ever been accomplished 4 times before, and it's the first time a man has done it in 45 years.
Mikaela Shiffrin is such an inspiration

17 year old US teen Mikaela Shiffrin is world skiing champ!
Not since Jean Claude Killy, 45 years ago, has a skier won three World Cup Championships (held ever 2 years). This last friday Ted Ligety won the GS after already winning the Super-G and the Combined (one run of downhill and one run of slalom). Yesterday Mikaela Shiffrin, at age 17, won the women's slalom. Great going for the US Ski Team! Yet all the sports coverage I read is either about LeBron, or Alabama football players and fighting, or pitchers and catchers reporting to camp.

Is anyone else out there as STOKED as we are with the US Olympic Team?
Mikaela Shiffrin today won Gold in the World Championship Slalom in Austria. She's 17, a World Champion, and an American. She is Gretzky on skis. She's beating women with a decade more experience and strength. It's her 4th win in Slalom this year. She's leading the overall for Slalom. She's rewriting American and World Skiing history. Even more endearing is every interview (all youtubable) she just looked shocked, humbled, beside herself, and amazed. I've seen the entire season. There's zero way a 17 year-old, 3000 miles from home, should get stronger than any world class field in any sport the later the event goes. Can't happen, right? Shiffrin separates herself in clutch time at the end of every run and even more so in the deep-rutted second runs. It shouldn't be possible,. Amazing!

Alright! 17 year old American Mikaela Shiffrin World Champion in the women's slalom!
Rootin for mikaela shiffrin!! Lol mutumbo on the geico commercial, funny!!
Few moments in ski racing, either competing or watching, have given me goose bumps. Watching Ted Ligety's GS runs at the World Championships had me covered head to toes in goose bumps. Shred Ted is an absolute beast!! Watching him inspires me to go arc some fatties. It also makes me hope, a bit more than before, that Aksel will love skiing & want to race.
Congratulations to Mikaela shiffrin 18 years old and Gold at the SKI WM !! :)
Big congrats to American Mikaela Shiffrin wins world Slalom title.
proud to accommodate the reigning World Champion of womens fis alpin slalom and her fam. congrats to mikaela shiffrin! :-D
The United States just won it's 4th Gold Medal on the skiing World Championship in Schlamding Austria. The 4th Medal won by our Mikaela Shiffrin and she is just 17 years old, on incredible feat but guess what there is hardly anything in the papers. The rather print stories about guy's that have kids with several different woman and stuff like that. The photo from Ted Ligity, that won 3 Gold medals, the photo was like a passport photo. Basketball player photos size 7x5ich. It is discus-sting how naïve our Sports editors are!!
