It is no exaggeration to state that Mikaela Shiffrin walked all over her competition in 2015-2016 World Cup Slalom. The reality is that Shiffrin didn’t have any competition. She wasn’t just all over her competition, Shiffrin was over her skis better than any of her competition.
The video below shows Shiffrin’s Move. I have slowed it down and cycled it in forward reverse to make it easier to see what she is doing.
Now watch Shiffrin in action.
Do you see her move? It is obvious, at least to me, that Shiffrin knows exactly what she is doing and she knows that no one else can figure it out. Well, almost no one else.
In my next post, I will compare Shiffrin to Zuzulova in the same race.
