The 26-year-old released on Thursday in the social media commentlessly several screenshots of quotes. It says, among others, “can not handle pressure”, “arrogant”, “you got what you earn” or “stupid blonde”.
The American did not explain what kind of comments or messages it is and where or how they were sent. Shifrin had previously experienced another disappointment at the Olympic Winter Games in China. According to third place in the descent, she threaded in Slalom at the 13th goal and did not go to the finish. It will end the games without a single medal. Previously, the two-time Olympic champion was dominated as a large favorite early in the giant slalom as well as slalom.
Shifrin himself was the most disappointed about services at the Olympic Games in Beijing: “Probably it would be the best if I just finished my career,” Shifrin said, laughing – it was really to howl. “I feel like a wit figure.” Tears ran after failuring in the alpine combination but no longer over the cheeks: “I’m really disappointed and really frustrated,” she told, “but I have no emotions, no energy left.”
