Two-time Olympic champion and six-time world champion Mikaela Shiffrin joined fellow Olympic gold medalists speedskater Erin Jackson and figure skater Nathan Chen on NBC's Inspiring America: The 2022 Inspiration List

From history-making moments, redemption and turning their challenges into successes, NBC's Craig Melvin hears from Shiffrin, Jackson, and Chen about inspiration behind their journeys as Olympic athletes. Shiffrin, a three-time Olympic medalist who was favored to win multiple medals at Beijing 2022, notably (like Chen and Jackson) endured defeat on the world stage, but got back on her feet to become champion. 

Shiffrin left her third Olympics with zero medals after uncharacteristic mistakes. But, her season wasn’t over. She returned to the top of the podium on the FIS Ski World Cup circuit to claim the overall title, the biggest annual prize in ski racing.
