Feb 20, 2017, 00:38
But Shiffrin kept her cool to hand out a startling primer in slalom skiing down a course coincidentally set by her personal coach, Mike Day, chosen in a random draw of all coaches.
Already the defending Olympic gold medalist in women's slalom following a stellar showing in Sochi three years ago, Shiffrin told reporters in February 2014 that she aspired to win five golds in her next Olympics.
"Three medals is great, but today is really special today for me because I finally skied this the way I wanted to and that's what means a lot to me today".
Shiffrin's third win in the slalom equalled the record of German Christl Cranz, who completed her treble in 1939.
A third gold medal in succession earned Mikaela Shiffrin a slice of FIS Alpine World Ski Championships history.
In Saturday's first run, Shiffrin had a comfortable lead of 0.38 seconds over the home country favorite, Wendy Holdener of Switzerland.
"That's one of the things that I didn't expect, the fan base", she said.
"I think about [becoming the overall World Cup champion] and it's a dream to win, but I'm not expecting to win this year", Shiffrin told the Denver Post last month. "I want to be the best skier, not just the fastest skier but the best technically". "In the first run, I was a little bit tentative because I was thinking about that, thinking about the spot that I fell at last year and then the spot that I fell at two years before that and then when I made it past there, I was like, "Wow! I was trying not to worry about anybody else and it worked well".
I didn't see my time until I got all the way through and I knew I had a good run. "I didn't have any expectation for this race because I had many on the speed side".

"I'm really excited with the silver in GS and today's race is as good as it could be", said Shiffrin, who was congratulated course-side by IOC President Thomas Bach. Candace Crawford and Mikaela Tommy did not finish, and Valerie Grenier did not start second run.
