NBC Sports, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA and Peacock combine to air live coverage of the Alpine skiing World Cup season, which sandwiches the Winter Olympics in February.

Mikaela Shiffrin, a three-time overall champion, is expected to return to her usual slate of racing — every slalom and giant slalom, plus a selection of downhills and super-Gs. She scaled back last season, returning from the Feb. 2, 2020, death of her father and a back injury to race exclusively technical events on the World Cup.

With the schedule changed to increase the percentage of speed races for an even split with tech, Swiss Lara Gut-Behrami may we be well-placed to win the overall, the biggest annual prize in ski racing. Shiffrin will likely duke it out in slaloms and giant slaloms with defending overall champ Petra Vlhova and world slalom champion Katharina Liensberger of Austria.

Frenchman Alexis Pinturault is the defending men’s overall champion. His biggest challengers include Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, Shiffrin’s boyfriend who narrowly won the 2019-20 overall, then had last season cut short by a knee injury.

Eliud Kipchoge breaks marathon world record in Berlin

Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge broke his own world record in winning the Berlin Marathon, clocking 2:01:09 to lower the previous record time of 2:01:39 he set in the German capital in 2018.

Kipchoge, 37 and a two-time Olympic champion, earned his 15th win in 17 career marathons to bolster his claim as the greatest runner in history over 26.2 miles.

His pacing was not ideal. Kipchoge slowed over the second half, running 61:18 for the second half after going out in 59:51 for the first 13.1 miles. He still won by 4:49 over Kenyan Mark Korir.

Ethiopian Tigist Assefa won the women’s race in 2:15:37, the third-fastest time in history. Only Brigid Kosgei (2:14:14 in Chicago in 2019) and Paula Radcliffe (2:15:25 in London in 2003) have gone faster.

American record holder Keira D’Amato, who entered as the top seed, was sixth in 2:21:48.

The last eight instances the men’s marathon world record has been broken, it has come on the pancake-flat roads of Berlin. It began in 2003, when Kenyan Paul Tergat became the first man to break 2:05.

The world record was 2:02:57 — set by Kenyan Dennis Kimetto in 2014 — until Kipchoge broke it for the first time four years ago. The following year, Kipchoge became the first person to cover 26.2 miles in under two hours, doing so in a non-record-eligible showcase rather than a race.

Kipchoge’s focus going forward is trying to become the first runner to win three Olympic marathon titles in Paris in 2024. He also wants to win all six annual World Marathon Majors. He’s checked off four of them, only missing Boston (run in April) and New York City (run every November).
