Another (Almost) Dartmouth Medal

Mikaela Shiffren, the daughter of Jeff Shiffrin ‘76 and Eileen Shiffren, won a gold medal today at Sochi in the slalom. Congrats to Mikaela and to her folks, who mapped out an original training program for Mikaela that was key to her success.

Mikaela skied for most of her career in the Upper Valley and at Burke Mountian Academy. Jeff worked for many years at DHMC.

Addendum: And while we are counting Dartmouth medals, let’s not forget Gillian Apps ‘06, who now has a collection of three golds as a powerful forward with the Candian women’s hockey team.

When my family and I returned to the Upper Valley in 2004, I was surprised to find that in short order my three favorite Dartmouth athletes were future Olympians named Gillian, Katie and Cherie.
