Mikaela Shiffrin to win at Home

Publisert: (updated )

Veronika Velez Zuzulova of Slovakia and Swiss Wendy Holdener attacked Mikaela Shiffrin in the second run at Killington. Shiffrin had to put in some elbow grease to claim the victory in the Killington World Cup slalom in front of her home crowd.

Shiffrin, whose hometown is Vail, Colorado graduated from high school in the state of Vermont approximately two hours from Killington.

"I put a lot of pressure on myself,” Shiffrin said. “Knowing that I’ve been performing so well in slalom, I really had a great chance of winning the slalom here. And I actually really wanted to win the GS as well, but I didn’t put winning GS skiing out there.”

“It was a really nice race,” Velez Zuzulova said. “Usually we are racing in Aspen and I can say that the crowd is never like this, so it was a really nice experience to race here.”
