Shiffrin’s Olympics: 5 Individual Races, No Medals, 3 DNFs
BEIJING (AP) — Mikaela Shiffrin skied out in the Alpine combined and once again was unable to finish a race at the Beijing Olympics.
She will leave the 2022 Games without an individual medal after participating in all five women’s events.
The 26-year-old American won two golds at past Olympics but did not complete three of her five races in China.
Shiffrin was fifth-fastest in the downhill portion of the two-run combined on Thursday morning but fell early in the slalom leg in the afternoon.
She sat for a few seconds, then rose and shook her head.
Shiffrin said she was not sure what went wrong in Beijing.
The 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics
Just a year after Japan’s summer Olympics, the Games are back for a winter show in Beijing, China. The unusually short gap between Games is due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Strict precautions and enforced virus prevention protocol are in place to help keep athletes, coaches and personnel safe.
Beijing is the capital of China, with a population of more than 20 million people and the first city to host both a Summer and Winter Olympic games. It is one of the largest cities in the world and 15 hours ahead of Mountain Time. There are 13 different venues in and around Beijing that will be used for the Winter Olympics. A total of 109 events will be held in 15 different sports, and there will be a lot of Utah locals competing for medals. Keep up to date with them at our Olympic headquarters.
