Mikaela Shiffrin not thinking about the crystal globe

Even when an individual crystal globe is at the table, Mikaela’s mind is not fixated upon the reward. For her, it’s about enjoying the experience of being at the world cups and cherishing each moment that comes her way. After the finish of run one, she said, “I’m not thinking about the globe. I felt good the first run just focusing on the skiing.”

The two-time Olympic champion further added, “Whatever happens with the day, I can be happy because that skiing felt good. It’s been quite a long time since I actually skied like that in a GS…maybe since Courchevel.”
