Slalom in Levi: Mikaela Shiffrin off the podium

Levi's slalom was a Petra Vlhova's golden race. The Slovakian coached by Livio Magoni repeated after yesterday's success. Behind her the Swiss Michelle Gisin at 31 cents and last step of the position for the 23-year-old Austrian Liensberger.

Mikaela Shiffrin, after the podium number 97 obtained, was unable to repeat herself in Finland. Fourth after the first heat, in the second she was unable to change gear, probably due to the tiredness of returning to the races after 300 days and she finished fifth.

Federica Brignone finishes in 24th place, while Marta Bassino went off the track. Vlhova places us in the lead of the general followed by the Swiss Gisin.

Lindsey Von and Mikaela Shiffrin's last news

Lindsey Vonn victim of body shaming for photos from behind while walking on the beach, then one in a boat in a bikini, and one in profile still in a bathing suit.

Through social media she said: "I've been posting some costume photos lately, which is scarier than it looks. Even as an athlete there are ruthless comments and media stories that destroy my body and I admit that sometimes it hurts me.

I am a normal person and sometimes I squirm, my stomach bends, cellulite manifests itself on the butt or I don't fill the upper part well of the costume. But I always remember how my body helped me achieve amazing things in my life and I am proud of how strong I am.

I'm not a size zero and that's fine for me. One thing I can swear to all of you is that I have never used Photoshop for my photos and I am proud to have never undergone any plastic surgery of any kind. No botox, no fillers, no mini surgeries.

Literally nothing. I'm 100% natural and 100% Lindsey. To those who feel down about their appearance, be strong, stay healthy and love yourself, whatever the haters say. Let's continue the positive culture of the body!" The ski champion was targeted after posting a series of costume shots on social media.

Her physique is beautiful and statuesque even with some imperfections, and the series of hateful comments, to which the sportswoman responded with the long post in which she talks about the relationship with her body and invites women to love themselves, are very embarassing.

After some rumors, Mikaela Shiffrin could return to the World Cup race, after more than 10 months, in Levi, Finland, on the weekend of 21-22 November, for the Special Slalom. Shiffrin will try to come back to very high levels from a physical and technical point of view, despite the fact that she has lost several months of summer training also due to an injury.

Two times Olympic champion said that it is always and in any case difficult for her to think of skiing as before and that sometimes she even struggles to get out of bed, after the untimely death of her father, but she herself has made it clear that at the moment the retirement is not contemplated, precisely because it is contrary to the will of his father.

Mikaela had already talked about the possibility of returning to competitions in November, but now his participation in Levi's slalom seems to have become a certainty. Alpine skiing is ready to re-embrace one of its queens exactly 10 months after the last triumph, on January 26 in Bansko, Bulgaria.
