Wins Olympic gold medal

21 Feb, 2014

Shiffrin wins the Olympic gold medal in the Women’s Alpine Skiing: Slalom event. The American completes a total time of 1:44.54 minutes, which is more than half a second faster than silver medalist Marlies Schild of Austria.

I wish I could have an American flag on my back in every World Cup because that’s a really cool feeling to hold that and know that you’re not only representing yourself and your family or your team, but the entire country that you come from.
