Shiffrin Shows People How She Got Red Carpet Ready for the 2021 ESPYs
July means two things for two-time Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin: double session strength and conditioning workouts in the gym and hitting the red carpet for the ESPYs: the biggest sports awards night of the year to celebrate the best players, moments, coaches, and games in sports. She shared a glimpse behind the scenes with People magazine as she prepared for her red carpet moment with her Norwegian boyfriend (and 2020 FIS Ski World Cup Overall Crystal Globe winner) Aleksander Aamodt-Kilde.
First thing's first. Shiffrin hit the gym to start off the day with U.S. Ski & Snowboard coach Jeff Lackie, saying,
I'm currently in the middle of a strength and conditioning block preparing for the big upcoming season (headlined by the 2022 Beijing Olympics), so I snuck in an a.m. workout with my coach Jeff Lackie.
Shiffrin also caught up with U.S. Ski & Snowboard teammate and fellow Olympic champion Chloe Kim, congratulating her for her fifth ESPYs Award, this time in the "Female Action Sports Athlete" category.
