Mikaela Shiffrin graces the cover of the March edition of Sports Illustrated with the accolade of “the world’s most dominant athlete.”

The world’s most dominant athlete? The world’s most dominant skier for sure, but overall athlete… what do you think?

“None of (her fame and success) mattered when the call came, when Shiffrin, only 24, learned that her father, Jeff, had suffered a grave injury in an accident at home in Colorado. Mikaela and her mother, Eileen, immediately flew back from Europe and were able to spend Jeff’s final hours by his side,” wrote Greg Bishop, the author of the Sports Illustrated piece.

The piece offers a bit of background into her family life and her beginnings as a skier.
