Mikaela Shiffrin is nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award. (U.S. Ski Team)
Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, CO) had a ridiculous year—six slalom victories, three giant slalom wins and one alpine combined victory on the World Cup, her third straight World Championship slalom title, a silver in the World Champs giant slalom, her fourth career World Cup slalom title and her first-ever overall World Cup title. Wow.
Shiffrin is up against USA Gymnastics’ Simone Biles, USA Swimming’s Katie Ledecky, US Soccer’s Alex Morgan, WNBA player Nneka Ogwumike of the Sparks, and tennis player Serena Williams.
Nickelodeon’s tagline for the award is: “They are, simply put, the best athletes of the year.” Help Shiffrin win the award for Favorite Female Athlete by voting here. Winners are announced on July 16 at 8 p.m. ET.
