Next year Shiffrin may become the all-time winningest alpine skier, but so far Kilde has won more races than his girlfriend this season.
– She has a lot of success even then, in her own circus. She runs her own scheme, so we’ll see each other for a couple of days at Christmas. It will be very nice, says Kilde about the girlfriend – in this VG interview done before the aforementioned Christmas celebration.
Kilde has run seven races. Conclusion: Five podiums, four of them victories. Shiffrin has run nine races. Conclusion: Four podiums, three victories.
Shiffrin paid tribute to Kilde after two wins at Beaver Creek at the start of December:
Shiffrin has 77 World Cup victories, five behind compatriot Lindsey Vonn and nine behind the all-time winningest Ingemar Stenmark with 86.
– In my eyes, she is the best ever. She is going to break the World Cup record very soon and become the biggest in history, says Vonn to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, reproduced in the Swedish Expressen.
It will be a short Christmas holiday for the couple. Kilde is favorite when there is a speed race in Bormio in Italy with downhill on 28 December and super-G on 29.
Shiffriner travels to Austria and Semmering, where giant slalom and slalom will be raced from 27 December.
Here Kilde raced to downhill victory, the day before his girlfriend won in St. Moritz:
With all her success, Shiffrin is a role model for many. Kilde’s teammate Atle Lie McGrath told VG that he previously stayed starstruck by Shiffrinwhich Kilde laughs off when VG confronts him about it.
– It’s wonderful that he has that view of her. I don’t think he needs to be so starstruck now anymore. They are more good friends and can hold a very normal conversation, says Kilde to VG.
In May last year, it became known that Kilde and Shiffrin are a couple.
– I guess I wouldn’t say that I’m starstruck. For me, it will be a little different, says Kilde and laughs heartily.
