Mikaela Shiffrin Took Care Of Herself

It is hard to see heartbreak on television, and to see an athlete’s dreams be crushed. It is even harder to watch when that athlete is someone like Shiffrin, who shouldered so many expectations and then was reduced to apologizing to viewers for her poor performance.
