2014 champ Shiffrin finishes fourth in Olympic slalom

Shiffrin doesn't do everything fast.

Mikaela Shiffrin narrowly missed a podium finish in the slalom at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, falling short in her bid to become the first US skier to win three gold medals and failing to win a medal in the event she won at the 2014 Games. "And that's not something that deserves to win a medal".

But that's not Shiffrin's style. She remains close with her grandmother, who still lives in the Prospect Street home where Shiffrin's mother was raised.

Her whole Olympics are shifting now. There's some sort of micro-terrain that, especially when it's a little darker, you can't see it that well. "Sometimes it's just more like I'm just trying not to think".

The best news is there is more to come.

Lake Placid native Andrew Weibrecht is an outside contender for a third-consecutive medal in the men's super-G.

Still, four is not out of reach. "I just tried to hang on to that feeling and then focus on my skiing a bit". "It's an incredible feeling to know my best effort is good enough". Shiffrin has battled nervousness that has led to nausea in the past, and it seemed to hit her again before her first run that placed her in fourth place.

Shiffrin is a racer who, like Bode Miller used to say, aims more to ski her best - to arc every turn, to use her skis to their potential, to hold the flawless line - than to collect trophies.

London's Metropolitan Police said its investigation into the fire is ongoing and that no arrests have yet been made. The group was set up after fire ravaged the Grenfell Tower apartment block in June, killing 71 people.

And ready she was. Time constraints probably prevented NBC from showing it before Jacobellis competed Friday (she finished fourth ) and that's a shame, because anyone who saw the story would have rooted hard for her. First-run leader Manuela Moelgg of Italy wound up eighth.

Behind the finish line, Shiffrin's father was cheering her on.

"It was marvelous", Jeff Shiffrin said. She finished eight-hundredths of a second from bronze. That felt really marvelous.

After attending the medal ceremony Thursday night, Shiffrin said, she didn't get to bed until around 10 p.m., roughly 1½ hours later than normal during the Pyeongchang Games.

I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. The two are apparently co-parenting just fine, but are in no rush to tie the knot .

Shiffrin, who has racked up 41 World Cup wins, is expected to make a decision on how to approach the compressed schedule after Friday's slalom. Before her first run, she dealt with something else - something resembling nerves. He crashed into a course-side television cameraman Tuesday in the slalom leg of the combined event. In speed-skating, we are great, so people like it.

Italian skier Marta Bassino just missed out on the medals at the Winter Olympics with a magnificent show in the Giant Slalom in South Korea. "I think we're more emotional than her".

Mowinckel helped make it a three-medal Alpine day for Norway: Aksel Lund Svindal won the men's downhill about 30 miles away at the Jeongseon Alpine Center, and Kjetil Jansrud got silver.

When it was Shiffrin's turn, she acted like she had been there before - which she had. Maybe it was the emotion of the previous day, crossing the line faster than anyone else in the world in GS, standing atop the podium to receive her medal, listening to the "Star Spangled Banner" while watching the American flag raised higher than any other.

Mr Pompeo said the Central Intelligence Agency was acting but could not make the details public. It doesn't mean there weren't efforts, and we do know there were.

No reason to expend any extra energy. And perhaps more medals to be won.
