The most decorated racer of all time, Mikaela Shiffrin, is keeping her legs ready for winter in the Northern Hemisphere by tearing it up at Portillo, Chile.
Yesterday, September 17th, Shiffrin shared a clip of her catching air on a high-speed Chilean race course.
In this clip, Shiffrin is departing from her usual specialties, slalom, and giant slalom, by training on a super g or downhill course.
Of her numerous World Cup wins, three are in downhill, and five are in super g -- in total, Shiffrin has won 88 World Cup races.
Despite speed training being slightly outside her usual wheelhouse, Shiffrin looks comfortable hitting this jump at pace.
But that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone familiar with Shiffrin's rap sheet. Last season, Shiffrin became the winningest ski racer ever, edging out previous record holder Ingemar Stenmark.
Therefore, a little jump in focus probably left Shiffrin unphased and could indicate that she plans to pursue downhill or super g with renewed energy next season.
Only time will tell.
