After a 25-year absence, the World Cup ski circuit returns to the U.S. East Coast next month. No one is more thrilled than Olympic slalom champion Mikaela Shiffrin.Oh, we are so excited, Shiffrin said. Its been a while. Its like coming back to Vail for the world championships (in 2015) after so long. I know that the East Coast, the people, the ski racing fans, they are so excited for this race. I cant wait to bring ski racing back to them.Killington, Vermont, will host a pair of womens races on Thanksgiving weekend, with a giant slalom Nov. 26 and a slalom the following day. The 21-year-old Shiffrin grew up in Colorado, but most of her family is from New England.They are over the moon. They cant wait for this race to happen, the 21-year-old Shiffrin said. My grandma, she is 95, I think is coming. I hope she will be able to go. That would be amazing.The World Cup circuit visited Vermont before -- in Stratton in 1978 -- but Novembers event will be the first in the U.S. northeast since American skier Julie Parisien won a GS in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, in 1991.Ted Ligety, the Olympic GS gold medalist from Utah, hopes the area will also become a stop on the mens World Cup circuit.Having a race in the East Coast really makes sense, Ligety said. There is a ton of hard-core ski racing fans in the East Coast. There are big populations near these ski races, as well. In the whole New England area you will get a big crowd as long as you are within a couple hours drive from Boston.The event in Killington features the first two of a total of 16 World Cup races on American snow in the 2016-17 season, the highest number in the past two decades.The men traditionally race in Beaver Creek, Colorado, in early December, but Squaw Valley, California, has been added to the womens calendar for March, shortly before the men and women contest the World Cup finals in Aspen, Colorado.Many of our athletes grew up training and racing on these hills, Tiger Shaw, president and CEO of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, said. Theyre excited to have this many opportunities to ski in front of a hometown crowd.Shiffrin believes that having 16 races in the U.S. will spark greater interest in the sport across the country.Especially moving into an Olympic year, it provides a lot more opportunities from a business standpoint for us, U.S. ski racers, she said. Thats huge.Shiffrin recalled how watching the likes of Lindsey Vonn, Anja Paerson, Janica Kostelic and Marlies Schild inspired her to get into racing.I watched all these girls and ski racing was the biggest thing in my eyes, Shiffrin said. I am hoping that having this many races in the U.S. can really spark some interest with those young girls, who remind me of myself 10 years ago.The USSA is eager to build on the momentum and host more World Cup races on a regular basis in the near future. Many American ski resorts could stage those races, but the rise of new formats like city events offers further opportunities.Boston hosted a Big Air freestyle skiing event at Fenway Park in February, and could also host an Alpine skiing city event one day.Its great for us to be able to go to big cities around the world, FIS womens race director Atle Skaardal said. We have been to Munich, to Stockholm, to Moscow. Maybe we find an opportunity in North America, in one of the big cities there. These could be the highlights that are absolutely giving us the attraction we are looking for in these very populated areas of the world. Clearance Shoes . Jane Virtanen scored two, and Alex Roach and Elliott Peterson rounded out the offence for the Hitmen (40-15-6). Brady Brassart chipped in with three assists. Colton McCarthy scored twice, Brayden Point had a goal and two assists, and Jack Rodewald also scored for the Warriors (15-35-9), who were 2 for 5 on the power play. Fake Shoes For Sale . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. https://www.fakeshoeswholesale.com/ . Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. Wholesale Shoes . After Martin Skrtel put the Reds in front from close range at Stamford Bridge after only four minutes, Hazard hit back in the 17th with a superb strike. Etoo gave Jose Mourinhos team a decisive lead from Oscars back pass in the 34th. Shoes Outlet . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. On his immediate thoughts on the result, and what India can take away from it:Well, the first thing I felt when I saw the draw a couple of months ago was how could we get such a bad draw? It was definitely the worst draw of all the teams that I would have wanted to play. We could have played Canada, we could have played Kazakhistan, we could have played Belgium. All with one superstar player. But here, even if I wished for Nadal not to come, they have David Ferrer, they have Feliciano Lopez, they have Batista-Agut. Theyve got 10 guys in the top 50, maybe more. So terrible draw first of all, and when we are trying to get into the world group this was not what we needed.Secondly, we found out this weekend, how much better we need to be both mentally and physically, and it was a learning experience for the boys. I mean Ramkumar played really well on the first day, Saketh Myneni played as well as he was allowed to play, against David Ferrer, but it was a complete mismatch, as was the singles today.Doubles was very competitive, we should have won that second set and gone two sets to love which would have made it very interesting. Both Leander and Saket played great, and we were very unlucky to lose that.On Sumit Nagals injury and the fitness levels of the Indians compared to international teamsWe are way behind the Spanish, but they are probably the fittest team in the world. I mean if you saw Marc Lopez today at 34 years of age, quite amazing. He played four very close and intense sets yesterday, came back, and was down 3-0 in the final set today and won 6 games. So the guy still had enough in the tank to play with a 19-year-old kid and beat him. And our 19-year-old kid kind of faded out. Im not exactly sure what went wrong. Maybe it was just nerves that caused him to tighten up because apparently from what Ive heard from other people he is a very fit guy. Today he looked exhausted from the second or third game of the first set, so I wasnt quite sure what exactly was the matter. And then he wanted to take a medical time out early in the third set when he wass up.ddddddddddddAnd you dont take medical time outs when youre up, you take it when youre down, as most people know.So I told him No, youre not going to do it now, but then he had some problem with his stomach, his abdomen and he said he couldnt breathe properly. I wasnt exactly sure what the problem was but having said all that, we do have fitness problems in our team, we do have cramping problems in our team, and so it needs to be worked out somehow. Its very hard for me as captain to say Well, Im going to put Saketh Myneni in but Im not sure he can play 5 sets. Thats not good. I mean rather play somebody else whos not as good, but who can last 5 sets, like Ramkumar.I dont think its a matter of lack of personnel or resources. I think youve just got to commit yourselves to train like the way David Ferrer does, or Feliciano Lopez does. Im not even saying like Nadal does, Im not talking about the top 4 or 5 guys in the world. Im taking about even to compete with the guys who are in the 20s, 30s, 40s, youve got to be in phenomenal physical shape and at 19 you should be. I mean, its amazing to me that 19, 21 and 25 year olds are not in the best shape they can possibly be, and really want to be pro-tennis players. Its just amazing. And as the coach, Zeeshan (Ali) and I were talking just the other day, its frustrating as hell. And the fact is that in our playing days, we didnt have tie-breakers, we played best of five sets, and if I went and told my coach or my captain, Ramanathan Krishnan at the time, that I cant play 3 days in a row, Id be off the team. Id be kicked off the team very quickly.On why the rest of the players werent seated in support for the Nagal-Lopez match, as against Spains contingent which was present in full:Well, I generally insist that the whole team sits behind me when I am sitting in the captains chair. Now Zeeshan is always there and Prajnesh (Gunneswaran) was there. But you know, Leander comes and goes. ' ' '
