In a sport where 1st to 3rd place is regularly separated by a tenth or a couple hundredths of a second, winning by a full 2.29 seconds is like windmill dunking over an entire basketball team from the free-throw line. Her victory was the largest margin for a women’s slalom in more than three years (Mikaela also holds the record margin of 3.07 seconds from a 2015 victory).
