Team USA star Mikaela Shiffrin is set to make her third appearance at the 2022 Winter Olympics, which could be record-breaking for the 26-year-old Alpine skier.
Shiffrin, who is arguably one of the biggest star in Beijing, is poised to medal in all five events she competes in. If the three-time Olympic medalist places in the top three at least one time, she would tie Janice Kostelic’s four-medal record.
In 2014, Shiffrin had a gold-winning performance on the slalom in Sochi. Then, won gold on the giant slalom and silver on the alpine combined in PyeongChang in 2018.
