Vomiting Shiffrin upstaged by Hansdotter in slalom

Ratings slide a bit for NBC; the West Coast has advantage

"My legs weren't that fast on the second run, I felt the pressure so I fought to the end and I'm really happy to get the second place", she said.

Friday's disappointment continued what's been a somewhat turbulent Olympics for Shiffrin.

Resi Stiegler crashed her first run and injured her left knee.

The 22-year-old Shiffrin herself later backtracked on her initial assessment about her illness and instead attributed the bout of vomiting to nerves. "I've been confident, comfortable", Shiffrin said. First-run leader Manuela Moelgg of Italy quickly gave away her 0.20-second advantage over Shiffrin and was eighth.

It's why she says she would vomit before races last season. "It's like, the races I'm supposed to win, I worry about what happens if I don't". My family? The media?

"I know that ... this is going to sound so arrogant ..." "I don't think that, in and of itself, had a huge impact on my first run today". "I was quite conservative".

At the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, Shiffrin promised, "I can be a lot cleaner for the second run, so that's my goal".

Then second run, Gallhuber did "a Shiffrin".

- Ted-Jan Bloemen of Canada won the 10,000 meters in an Olympic-record time of 12 minutes, 39.77 seconds.

Standing in the leader's circle at the bottom of the hill after that first run, Holdener seemed slightly surprised that she would retain the lead after the first run by the defending gold medalist in this event. After all, the reigning overall World Cup champ had won 26 of the last 32 slalom races. "It's nice for me to be there for once because she has been beating me so many times".

Here's Why Eating More Slowly May Help You Lose Weight
When people eat too fast, hormones in the gut that relay the "I'm full" signal to the brain aren't given enough time to work. According to that data, eating faster had an impact on people's weight compared to the people who ate at a normal speed.

With the wind picking up, Shiffrin could not improve her time in the second run, clocking 49.66, and as she pushed over the finish line and saw her time, threw up her arms in anguish.

Shriffin seized gold in the giant slalom Thursday, her second Olympic title four years after she became the youngest Olympian to win the slalom in Sochi aged 18. "She's up there, she's always second behind Shiffrin". He had dominated the distance race at every competition except the Olympics, where he has never won it.

Less than 24 hours after her triumph in the giant slalom came a reminder that Olympic titles do not come easily, even for phenomenal talents like Mikaela Shiffrin.

There would be no such magic Friday afternoon. It may have affected her from getting a second medal in PyeongChang. The race is also run over a steeper slope and is won by the athlete who posts the fastest time over a single run. "That's not something that deserves to win a medal".

Shiffrin will skip the super-G race. But weather wiped out two days of competition, forcing Olympic officials to shuffle and condense the alpine schedule. In the process, not only did Shiffrin miss out on gold but she also missed out on the podium altogether.

Shiffrin's mother, Eileen, who also coaches Mikaela, already had said Saturday's super-G was no longer part of the plan. Shiffrin and the slalom are the most reliable combination in Alpine racing. "One day to go!"

A look at medal counts so far as of 7:40 p.m. on Thu., Feb. 15, 2018.

"I knew it would be tough, Mikaela has been so strong this season", Hansdotter said. "I have to be prepared for anything".

The men's short program is underway at Gangneung Ice Arena, where American figure skater Nathan Chen hopes to land his array of quads that could allow him to challenge for an Olympic medal.
