Mikaela Shiffrin of Edwards was recently less than half a second from winning her 83rd World Cup alpine ski race. If she does get to 83 career victories, it would be the most ever among women. This is also a comeback story. John Henderson is following Shiffrin's run. He’s a former sports reporter for the Denver Post, now based in Italy. He spoke with CPR's Corey Jones.
