By now, Mikaela Shiffrin was supposed to have completed Olympic races in her two best disciplines: slalom and giant slalom.
Instead, thanks to weather postponements, she has yet to make her 2018 Olympic debut.
Weather permitting, Shiffrin will race tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC in giant slalom.
Watch on TV: NBC, 8p ET / 5p PT
Bode Miller, the most decorated U.S. Olympic skier who is now an Alpine skiing analyst for NBC Olympics, believes that Shiffrin will benefit from racing in giant slalom before slalom.
“The giant slalom is a little bit of an easier event to ease into the Olympics,” he said. “Slalom is stressful. Even though it’s her stronger event, I would like to see her get into a groove and get a medal in GS first.”
