World Cup feels ‘unreal’ for Shiffrin after failed Video games

Mikaela Shiffrin Takes First Place in the “Impossible” World Cup
Achieving the World Cup was like having a “impossible title” for skier Mikaela Shiffrin’s career. The American, 27, had a season filled with highs and lows. Shiffrin remarked, “The downs were very, very tough; these were some of the hardest moments of my life,” following his second-place performance in the Courchevel super-G and his overall victory. “So, winning the World Cup is extremely special after this trying time, and it was probably my main objective this season.”
The two-time Olympic champion did not win a medal in any of the six sports she competed in last month’s Olympic Games in China. Her social media fans were very critical of her and insulted her for this letdown. “Whenever I have one difficult situation, it always seems to resurface later. Then, I just want to go home because I’m so depressed.
A corona infection kept Shiffrin out of a couple World Cup games. She was still able to take home the crystal ball on Thursday as the World Cup champion overall for the fourth time. This season, she won five World Cups, increasing her total to 74. Even still, following the disappointing Games, the talented skier’s overall victory seemed surreal. “This felt like it couldn’t possibly happen in some ways.”
