Mikaela Shiffrin: no Cup, here is the World Championship!

Mikaela Shiffrin will not be present in St. Moritz. It seems the American is not thinking about the fight for the World Cup. After the renunciations of Soelden and Lech, the renunciation of St. Moritz is the clear sign of how the American is absolutely in no condition.

There are very few workouts in Mikaela's legs, who has decided to devote herself to a series of slalom and giant trainings. A decision made even after Levi's two races, which confirmed how Shiffrin is still lagging behind his main rivals, perhaps even paying a little fatigue in the second slalom.

Not being at a top level also influenced the decision not to run fast tests. Downhill and supergiant, it is necessary to be at the top of both mental and physical condition, to avoid possible falls and consequently also injuries.

A farewell to the Cup and therefore a thought that goes directly to the Cortina World Cup. The feeling is that Shiffrin can start planning his calendar with the most precise details, selecting which races to do and which not.

All to get to the top of the condition at the World Championships.

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.

In Lapland, the American champion has already won 4 triumphs, the last one just a year ago. Shiffrin had already talked about the possibility of returning to competitions in November, but now her participation in Levi's slalom seems to have become a certainty.
