Both Mikaela Shiffrin and Aleksander Aamodt Kilde are alpine skiers. While Shiffrin dominates slalom skiing, Kilde is an alpine ski racer and focuses mainly on super-G and downhill.

The two have been practicing together for the upcoming Winter Olympics and are rumored to be dating. The official Twitter account of the Olympics posted a video of the two alpine skiers. Both can be seen dancing in each other arms and having fun.

In the video, Kidle describes the beautiful relationship he has with Shiffrin. He mentions the wonderful experiences they share, and also their meaningful conversations.

“We are having an amazing time together and what I find really cool is that we can share experiences and have conversations about things I can’t really have with anyone else,” said Kidle.

The couple is part of the same sport, so they can also share their experiences and talk about their passion. Kidle admires Shiffrin, and the decorated career she has had so far.

“She has a lot of experience. I have some experience and we can make each other better,” he added.

Moreover, if it wasn’t clear by now, Kidle has also additionally mentioned that he liked Shiffrin, “more than anything else.”
