Mikaela Shiffrin Took a Nap, Then Took Home Olympic Gold in Giant Slalom

US Olympic skier Mikaela Shiffrin did what she came to do. At 2014 Sochi Olympics, when she was just 18 years old, she finished in fifth place for the giant slalom. At the time she said, "The next Olympics I go to, I'm sure as heck not getting fifth." Now 22, the American made good on that goal during her much-anticipated debut race, skiing with power and purpose, and won gold!

She had two runs, trailed by .20 seconds in her first run, but powered through the challenging course to make up the time in her second run. Mikaela actually had about an hour between runs, so she put on her big headphones, turned up her music, and . . . took a nap.
