The next 14 wins will be a fight.
Do you think she is not capable of doing that as often or the competition is just better?Totally! MS isn't as dominant as she once was. Today's second run was a glimpse at how great she can be, but she's not as capable of doing that every run, every day as she once was. Vlhova, Hector, LGB, ASL, Goggia, Bassino - they all can beat her any given day in their various specialties.
It'll be a tough mountain to climb. She can do it, but will she? Time will tell.

Shiffy had a free hand in SL for years - her win ratio seems to have flipped from 75/25 to 25/75. Petra and Shiffy are same age.
And with Petra pushing her, Shiffy is more prone to DNF's - something that was also flipped just a few years back.
GS has always been tighter than SL and she is better in GS now, but field is still strong.
Anyway, I am hoping she can get to 87...but needs a good run of wins over next couple years.
Ted Ligety is not inside her head right now.Ted Ligety thinks Shiffy can get to 100. I’ll settle for 87 - but it will be tough. Would be nice to go into next season needing 10 or less.
yeah, back to back would be amazing ! But as we saw together in '20, it would take too long to clean up the empty bier cans and gluhwien cups after day one to have a race the next day !Watched the replay last night with my daughter. We both wondered, why not back -to -back night SL’s at Schladming for both genders?
Seems like a home run for all. The women deserve an event at possibly the most iconic slalom hill in Europe, and imagine the (hopefully soon again) crowds? It could exceed Killington.
