Mikaela Shiffrin

My God, could the media put any more pressure on this girl! Before her first run she was seen puking. You know, she is an awesome skier, and on the World Cup she is dominating, but you are only as good as your last finish, and there are many in line for the crown. She knows this, but the media in an...
