After an excellent start to the 2019 campaign, the ski phantom is at the peak of her career's height. However, she took a break for over a year after her father's demise. Covid-19 and her back injury assisted to stretch her break period. Currently, Mikaela is thinking about her Beijing matches, her third Olympics game. She has not yet decided which race she'll pick, but it's probable that we'll see her in the Winter Olympics 2022.
