    1. What about figure skater Gracie Gold?

    2. Shiffrin will hardly be forgotten after the end of Sochi, and may well end up one of the greatest alpine skiers of modern times. the youngest to ever win a gold in the slalom. Soon forgotten, not likely.

    3. She has entered Olympic annals, that's for sure. But next time she is discussed at the water cooler NOT during the Olympics, do let us know!
