The World Cup season is coming to a close in Are, Sweden, which means globes, parties and, hopefully, a little down time for the athletes when it’s all over. American Alice McKennis hopped on the phone with host Gabbi Hall before her last World Cup race of the season to talk about everything from her fifth-place performance in the Olympic downhill to the strength of the U.S. women’s speed team to overcoming the inevitable injuries that accompany life as an American Downhiller. Less than 24 hours after the interview, McKennis skied to her first World Cup podium finish in five years. This girl is on fire.
