World Cup Slalom Champion Mikaela Shiffrin appeared on the Late Show last night where she was interviewed by host David Letterman. The young skier is riding high after capturing the slalom title last weekend at the World Cup Finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.

Dave interviewed Mikaela about her recent victories in the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup, the upcoming 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, injured ski sensation Lindsey Vonn (who paid the Late Show a visit last season).

Mikaela is quickly becoming a national sweetheart in both the world of skiing and mainstream entertainment. The crowd absolutely loved her, validating her appearance with laughter and applause multiple times throughout the interview.

Fans can catch Mikaela Shiffrin, Julia Mancuso and others at the 2013 U.S. Nationals in Squaw Valley, CA which will run from March 20-24th.
