This is really interesting. I am not sure it was said here before, but I run across an interview with Mikaela Shiffrin, where she gives credit for her gold medal in slalom to Adelina Sotnikova. She said she was watching Adelina's gold medal performance the night before her own performance and got inspired by Adelina's flow on the ice. She was trying to repeat the flow and the moves on the slope and it resulted in her phenomenal first run during the slalom.
I must add that Mikaela almost fell out of the race in the second run, but the huge advantage she had from the first one was enough to win gold!
So I must say Adelina won one gold and the half in Sochi! Great job!
And I never realized those two disciplines might be so close to one another!
