Mikaela Shiffrin misses giant slalom final in disastrous start to Olympics 2022

Date:


Mikaela Shiffrin’s first run ended in disaster. 

In the United State skiing star’s first action of the 2022 Olympics, the giant slalom, Shiffrin crashed off course and was eliminated from the competition. She was the reigning champion, claiming the giant slalom gold medal in 2018. 

She fell coming around a left turn and missed an early gate.

It was the first time Shiffrin has “skied out” since January 23, 2018 – 30 giant slalom races ago. NBC flashed footage of Shiffrin’s family in disbelief watching at home after her shocking result.
