Mikaela Shiffrin Gets Street Named for Her in Avon
In addition to her Olympic gold, Mikaela Shiffrin now has a street named after her.
The community of Avon, near her home in Eagle-Vail, dedicated Mikaela Way on Monday.
The Vail Daily reports that Shiffrin rode in an antique fire truck during a parade in heavy rain and then tore down a gold tarp covering the road sign. About two dozen young ski racers followed behind her despite the weather.
At 18, Shiffrin became the youngest slalom champion in Olympic history at the Sochi Games.
She'll be headed to Austria soon to get ready for a World Cup event on Oct. 24.
