uan Stadium on Thursday, Sevilla exhor

COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. - Mikaela Shiffrin has hardly had time to catch her breath since the world last saw the vivacious teen bounding to the slalom title in breathtaking fashion — remember, she nearly fell — at the Sochi Olympics.Shes walked the red carpet at award ceremonies, taken online classes (she wants to be an environmental engineer when she grows up), been a fixture in the weight room (for more muscle definition) and sharpened her technique so she can accelerate her game plan.More speed is next on the agenda for the 19-year-old technical specialist. Shiffrin will sprinkle in a few super-G races to her schedule this season.All part of the gradual development of the young talent whos rapidly becoming the face of skiing — if shes not there already.It (notoriety) is starting to pick up a bit, said Shiffrin, who will race in a World Cup giant slalom and slalom this weekend in Aspen. At every training session, more people know who I am, maybe want a picture or an autograph. Otherwise, though, its been pretty calm and enjoyable.Shiffrin got off to a roaring start this season, winning the opening giant slalom in Soelden, Austria, in October. Her first career win in that discipline this soon in the year was a little unexpected, considering she just started breaking in a new pair of GS skis a few months ago.It has her thinking even grander thoughts, with possibly taking the starting line for a super-G race in, say, Val dIsere, France, next month.Thats a big leap for the skier whos taken incremental steps in her growth. She feels ready, though, for super-G races that can reach speed around 70 mph.My coach and I decided that if my giant slalom is going in right direction — and hopefully based off how did at Soelden it is — wed try to race some super-Gs this year, Shiffrin explained. Im feeling much more comfortable on my skis now.Hasnt she always?After all, shes been billed as the next big thing on the slopes for years, and lived up to that lofty reputation at every turn. With her win in Soelden, she became just the eighth female skier to win 10 or more World Cup races as a teenager. Austrian standout Annemarie Moser-Proell holds the record with 27 wins before turning 20.Shiffrin doesnt turn 20 until March, so she has time to add to her total.I never really predicted how much success I was going to have. I never even tried to, Shiffrin said. I dont think its something you can predict. I tried to work as hard as I could, to get my skiing where I thought it needed to be to race World Cup. Once I got to the level of World Cup, I wanted to win a World Cup. Once I won a World Cup, I wanted to win more.Theres always a higher level to shoot for.Shiffrin has a little confession to make: She doesnt enjoy watching replays of her winning Olympic slalom run from last February.Makes her too nervous, especially the part where about halfway through the second leg she briefly lost her balance. Her left ski rose too far off the snow and her chance at a gold medal in the event shes dominated for two years seemed about to slip away.But she recovered. And later, wore the gold medal around her neck.When she does interviews and its shown to her, she tries to stay calm, but all she wants to do is shield her eyes from watching that near tumble.Even now, my heart is beating out of my chest. My toes are in my throat, she said. Its a really nervous feeling. Every time, its like, Why did I do that?Shiffrin has that gold medal locked up and doesnt want to disclose the location because, theyd maybe go and steal it.But doesnt she want to show it off?Mine is not on display, said Shiffrin, whos looking forward to the world championships being held near her hometown of Eagle-Vail in February so she can sleep in her own bed. That would be pretentious.And no one would ever accuse her of being pretentious.This summer has flown by for Shiffrin.Sure, shes done some fun things — such as attending the ESPY Awards — but she spent most of her time honing her technique or in the gym working out. She wants to be stronger for the super-G races, since its a longer and more grueling discipline. Shes also cut fatty meats from her diet.Were trying to find the limit of what we can bring into ski racing, Shiffrin said. Blaise Matuidi France Jersey . The Thornhill, Ont., native, who is ranked 11th in the world, said hed hoped he would be ready when Canada begins its World Group first-round tie against Japan in Tokyo on Friday. Lucas Hernandez Jersey . The roster changes have been constant and continuous since late last year, but even with their 46-man roster set for the start of the season, the banged-up Bombers will be kicking off Week 1 with a handful of fresh faces and back-ups in the starting lineup. http://www.soccerfrancenationalshop.us/ … e-Jersey/. The Big Man finished 3-1 in Week 19, and sits at 53-24 on the season. Now Schultz is ready for more action. Samuel Umtiti Jersey . Ronaldo failed to connect on an ample number of opportunities at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. But Karim Benzema and Jese Rodriguez scored in each half for Madrid to come out of the first leg with the firm advantage. Lucas Hernandez France Jersey . Villarreals victory in Valencia kept it in fourth place and in control of Spains last Champions League spot. Uche broke free in the area in the 10th minute and was brought down by goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who was shown a direct red card.MADRID - Atletico Madrid and Barcelona fittingly have Wednesday in Spanish football all to themselves for the return leg of their Copa del Rey quarterfinal.All eyes will be on Vicente Calderon Stadium, where visiting Barcelona bring a 1-0 advantage.The other three return legs are on Thursday, when Espanyol takes a 3-1 lead into Sevilla, Villarreal goes to Getafe 1-0 up, and Athletic Bilbao and Malaga start without a goal yet.Here are some things to know about the matches:___BARCELONA STREAK: After romping past Elche 6-0 in the league, Barcelona is on a six-match winning streak in all competitions, and still on course for a treble.Coach Luis Enrique is expected to field a strong attacking lineup including Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez againt Atletico.Im at my best moment with Barcelona, Neymar says. I carry on growing and having more to do at the club. I want titles and many more things.Last season, Barcelona lost in the Copa final to Real Madrid. Atletico knocked out Real in the previous round.TO BENCH TORRES OR NOT: Atletico coach Diego Simeone has to decide whether to make the unpopular choice of benching striker Fernando Torres, who scored twice against Real, in favour of the in-form attacking duo of Mario Mandzukiic and Antoine Griezmann.ddddddddddddAlso, they will be without key defender Diego Godin, who is suspended.Whatever Simeones decisions, the team back him.Everyone knows Simeone, and they know how he loves the games and how he prepares them — always to win, defender Jose Maria Gimenez said. Thats the energy he gives us, that winning energy.Atletico has won only two of its last five matches. It comes off a 3-1 win against crosstown rival Rayo Vallecano, but has lost its last two games against Barcelona.EAGER FOR A COMEBACK: Eager to fill its Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium on Thursday, Sevilla exhorted its fans to support the team for what it called another historic comeback, and offered members tickets at 5 euros ($5.70).Queues formed around the stadium on Monday.Sevilla will be without defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, who has a ligament injury to his left ankle.THREE IN A ROW: Athletic Bilbao and Malaga ought to be getting sick of each other: This will be their third consecutive game. Athletic drew 1-1 against Malaga at San Mames Stadium in the league at the weekend.During the previous matches, both teams defended staunchly and tried to break their opponents down at set-pieces or on the counterattack.
