BEIJING (AP) - Mikaela Shiffrin completed the super-G at the Beijing Olympics in a time way out of medal contention.
But for the first time in three races at the 2022 Games, she made it across the finish.
The two-time Olympic Alpine gold medalist crossed the line at the bottom of a course known as The Rock in 1 minute, 14.30 seconds.
That left the 26-year-old American more than a half-second behind gold medalist Lara Gut-Behrami of Switzerland and in ninth place overall after all 44 entrants had taken their turns down the slope.
Shiffrin called her skiing “very uncertain.”
