Here`s America`s latest World Cup star, winning the gold on Beaver Creek`s Birds of Prey slalom course.

Mikaela Shiffrin isn`t 20 years old quite yet.  She looks just right here...almost perfect.


She won the 1st run on Saturday morning. With 10 gates left on her 2nd run she was behind in combined times.  She stepped on her pedal.   She beat the Swede Hansdotter by  0.34 seconds in those last 10 gates.


This young star is something.


Best to you Ms. Shiffrin...congratulations from one of many fans...this one named Mick
