Olympic Gold Medalist Mikaela Shiffrin on Blocking Out Toxic Mental Noise To Achieve Greatness EP 1470

Unleash the greatness within

Double-Olympic champion, seven-time World Champion, and winningest skier of all-time Mikaela Shiffrin has elevated women’s ski racing globally – both on and off the mountain. At 28- years-old, Mikaela has 88 World Cup victories across six disciplines to her name and is the only athlete to win in all six disciplines. At World Champs in Courchevel/Meribel, she became the most decorated alpine skier of the modern era in World Championships history (14 medals, seven gold). At Cortina 2021 World Champs, Mikaela became the first skier- male or female – to win gold medals at five straight worlds, and has now extended that to six straight worlds with

her gold in giant slalom at Courchevel/Meribel 2023.

“Knowing that the outcome could be completely terrible, you still need to go down that road and try, and that is the only confidence I want to have – the confidence to try!” @mikaelashiffrin  

And now let’s jump into episode 1470 of The School of Greatness!
