"Every single loss that I've ever had, I remember that feeling - ugh - so thoroughly", said Shiffrin, when I asked her how hard it would be to shake off this disappointment. "It's just - I beat myself the wrong way today".

Though she has decided against competing in the Super G, she'll have two more chances to pick up medals after Friday - Wednesday in the downhill and next Friday in the combined. Think that's why she won and Shiffrin didn't? (Later, after finishing in fourth place, she admitted to anxiety that made her sick.)

"She had predicted that on the second run, "[I'll] just let it go down the hill more in the second run, it will be quite a lot faster". "I'm not super psyched about it. I mean, I did, but when I was actually skiing my runs, that didn't come out, and that's a very big disappointment". There is not much tactics that goes into it.
