Mikaela Shiffrin Provides Insider’s Perspective to Organizing Committee for 2015 World Championships
World Champion Mikaela Shiffrin paid a special guest visit to the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships Organizing Committee meeting June 27 to provide an insider’s perspective on what makes for a great World Championships experience for the athletes.
The 18-year-old Eagle-Vail resident touched on various items, including athlete transportation, training and warm-up areas, Opening Ceremonies participation and the post-race gauntlet of interviews, medals and parties.
Approximately 50 members of Vail and Beaver Creek’s 2015 World Championships Organizing Committee were on hand for the bi-annual meeting, with the majority of the 21 operational committees also providing progress reports and updates on a wide variety of Championships’ activities.
Prior to leaving the meeting to attend a German class, Shiffren passed along one final message to the group.
“We’re all really excited to be here,” she said. “I’ve talked to a lot of other athletes and everyone loves coming here. I know this event is a huge undertaking for everyone, but we’re all very excited and I wanted you all to know that.”
