  • Shiffrin fitness will set her apart says Miller

At that point, the United States coaches have the final say on who races as the best medal contender, with Shiffrin allowed the option to pull herself out of races if she doesn't feel prepared.

Flash forward two decades, and their World Cup-winning daughter is now on the verge of potentially making history at the Pyeongchang Games.

Shiffrin won slalom gold at the 2014 Sochi Olympics in Sochi at the age of 18, a year after she won the first of her three consecutive world slalom titles.

Still, it's interesting to look back at the steps the Shiffrins took to instill killer skiing skills and an intense work ethic in their daughter.

As her mother, Eileen, who also serves as a coach, watched from the bottom of the Yongpyong hill, Shiffrin joined other racers in taking a couple of casual trips down a gateless giant slalom piste during a free ski the day before Monday's race. "Right now I'm focusing on giant slalom and slalom and after that switching the focus to speed".

"She's so impressive about staying focused in the process", said Mike Day, Shiffrin's coach with the US team.

"The expectations come more from myself", she said.

So far, Shiffrin has not committed to competing in anything beyond her best two disciplines over the coming two weeks, but she could wind up entering all five women's individual races.

"I'm feeling good", she said.

She couldn't help but laugh when a reporter asked what her reaction is to being compared with Michael Phelps, the USA swimmer who is the most decorated Olympian in history.

"That's insane", says Shiffrin.

Actually, Phelps' haul is 23 golds - and 28 medals in all.

Shiffrin feels under no pressure to medal as a favourite.
