Shiffrin’s worlds: 1 gold, 2 silvers and ‘every emotion’

MERIBEL, France (AP) — One gold. Two silvers. And three gates away from another gold medal that slipped from her grasp in a patch of soft snow. And that just was what Mikaela Shiffrin accomplished on the slopes at the world championships in France. The American skier also had to deal with a protest from environmentalists who mistakenly thought she was using a helicopter for training, and the sudden departure of her long-time personal coach. She says after finishing with a silver in slalom that “it’s been a complete world championships — every emotion I could feel.”
