USA Olympics team members Mikaela Shiffrin from the ski racer team and the handsome Brennan Rubie with the Alpine Sky team are no longer dating unfortunately or at least that was what Mikaela said recently, maybe she said so in an effort to keep her and Brennan’s relationship private or could it be true that these two love birds are no more??
Last Year Mikaela Shiffrin sat for an interview with Vail Beaver Creek magazine and at that time she talked about dating Brennan Rubie.
“We’ve been talking for a while, just keeping in touch, and lately it’s kind of moved forward, but we don’t see each other that much,” she says. “It would be nice to have more time to spend with him, but that’s not my path, and my priority isn’t really him, and his priority isn’t me. Our priorities are skiing.”
In case you are not familiar with Mikaela Shriffrin trajectory, let me tell you that she is believe to be the best skier ever, she is the World Cup and world champion in slalom reigning champ, what about Lindsey Vonn? Lindsey who??
Remember her name Mikaela Shiffring, she might surprise you at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, did I mentioned she is just 18???
