The three-time Olympic medalist Mikaela Shiffrin is on the course to become the most decorated skier of all time. The youngest athlete to reach 60 World Cup victories, she is also the first skier, male or female, to win across all six disciplines: slalom, parallel, giant slalom, super-G, downhill and alpine combined.
With New York Times, the 24-year-old, discusses travel, jet lag, music and the power of Mom. She also revealed the playlist that motivates her before skiing:
“Music is a big part of your routine. I have a playlist for gearing up to race and another for chilling out. My race prep includes classics like Eminem “Guts Over Fear,” featuring Sia, One Republic, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dua Lipa, Imagine Dragons, Kygo. To relax, I like uncomplicated, soulful melodies by artists like London Grammer, Italian pianist Ludovico Einaud and Olafur Arnalds, whose music sounds like symphonic lullabies”
