Mikaela Shiffrin and her sweetheart Aleksander Aamodt Kilde.

Shiffrin's declaration of love: "Every second with you..."

Mikaela Shiffrin stunned the ski world once again on Tuesday evening with her victory in Flachau. Now she is causing a stir again with a love post.

“Every second with you makes me breathe for days”: With this romantic quote, Shiffrin heralds a love letter for her Aleksander Aamodt Kilde. The Norwegian had a serious fall in Wengen on Saturday and had to undergo surgery in Bern, where he was visited and cared for by his Mikaela. Three days later, the American raced to her 94th World Cup victory in Flachau.

“It feels like I have lived a thousand lives in the past four days. And I’m not the one who fell into a safety net at 120 km/h,” says Shiffrin, referring to Kilde’s fall. “I can't describe how much joy and energy Aleks brings into my life. Seeing him fall so badly on TV, rushing the family to the hospital while he was being operated on - and then finally seeing him wake up hours later and repeat in complete confusion: 'I destroyed myself.' I don’t know how to express this, but I wanted to burn the universe down.”

Shiffrin continued: “And despite everything, he was so beautiful and kind and grateful. He never once lost his patience, even if he had thousands of reasons. He is an inspiration and brings out the best in those around him, even in the most difficult moments.”
“If you’re here now instead of with him, you’d better make something of it.” Mikaela Shiffrin

Then the ski queen refers to her victory in Flachau. "I went into the race last night and thought to myself: 'If you're here now instead of with him, you better make something of it.'" Finally, Shiffrin says to the fans: "To everyone who supports Aleks and him wish you all the best: thank you! He has had some very hard, painful and overwhelming days. He needs all the support he can get.”

How hard it hit Kilde can be seen from the pictures that Shiffrin attached to the posting. In a video, the caring American lady feeds her boyfriend soup on the hospital bed. This is what true ski love looks like.
