We are very excited to share that Olympic Gold Medalist Mikaela Shiffrin is now serving as The Westin Riverfront’s “Resident Gold Medalist.”
Nineteen-year-old Shiffrin - who was born and raised here in the Vail Valley - won her first Olympic slalom gold medal earlier this year in Sochi and has nine career World Cup slalom wins. She will now train at the Athletic Club at The Westin, hold a series of exclusive events for Athletic Club members and share her racing experiences with guests of the award-winning resort.
“We are very excited to have Mikaela prepare for the upcoming race season in our state-of-the-art facility and to have her share training tips with our Athletic Club members and guests,” said General Manager Jeffery Burrell. “The timing of this new relationship is fantastic with the international spotlight shining even brighter on the Vail Valley this February with the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.”
To prepare to have Shiffrin training on-site, the Athletic Club has created a new “Mikaela’s Corner” of the gym featuring new equipment, including a new Half-Rack with Olympic Platform and a Fitness Duo Slackline, plus has expanded its XFit Personal Training room, with new sand bags, kettlebells, obstacles and ropes.
