Always Be Faster Than The Boys.
The motto adorns the back of Mikaela Shiffrin’s helmet when she’s racing — and, often, winning.
This commercial, one of several spots featuring U.S. Olympians during Sunday’s Super Bowl LII on NBC (6:30 p.m. ET), highlights the world’s best all-around skier.
The motto came from three-time U.S. Olympic Alpine skier Heidi Voelker, who signed a poster for a young Shiffrin, “Dream big, Mikaela, and always be faster than the boys.”
Shiffrin, who in Sochi became the youngest Olympic slalom champion, could race as many as five individual events in PyeongChang and come home with multiple golds.
NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics starts Feb. 8, one night before the Opening Ceremony.
