Mikaela Shiffrin has decided to compete in the women's downhill event on Tuesday after a practice run that left her feeling "confident."
The two-time gold medalist said she's looking to "improve on some things without overdoing it" before the event at Yanqing Alpine Skiing Center's downhill course.
Shiffrin is looking to re-write her 2022 Winter Olympic narrative with a fresh start in the downhill event.
"I felt confident on my skis," Shiffrin told NBC Sports after her training session. "My times are pretty good in the mix, speeds are pretty good."
