    Actually Aussie media probably won't notice any snowsport athletes until next Olympics...

    Mikaela seems more self aware and calculating than Ms Vonn. She appears to be deliberately protecting herself mentally and physically from injury and overwork. As evidence, I present her gradual entry into speed events and her decision not to race all possible disciplines at big events like Olympics and worlds.

    Lindsey went all out, all the time, and over the years her body paid the price. She missed out on Stenmarks record mainly because of multiple rounds of races missed due to injury. Mikaela is more careful, spends less time on speed courses, and (so far) has sustained less injury time. Gotta love Lindsey's all in attitude, but Mikshif will probably surpass her records.

    it’s a deliberate approach
    Mikaela has referred to a conversation with Tina Maze, who advised her not to take on everything at once
    the risk of injury must be in everyone’s calculations but in this case there’s even more at stake
