Mikaela Shiffrin is a two-time Olympic gold medalist in alpine skiing. Shiffrin has three overall World Cup victories and six World Championship titles to his credit. She also has two Olympic gold medals to her name to top it all off. She is without a doubt one of the most successful alpine ski racers on the planet.
With endorsements, brands, and her athletic accomplishments, she has a global spotlight on herself.
Many people have asked if Mikaela Shiffrin is dating anyone, and if so, who she is dating.
She is currently dating Aleksander Aamodt Kilde.
Who is Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, Mikaela Shiffrin’s Boyfriend?
Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, a Norwegian alpine ski racer, is Mikaela Shiffrin’s boyfriend. He, like Shiffrin, is an Olympian. He also accompanied her to the Beijing Winter Olympics, where he represented Norway.
Kilde took home a bronze and a silver medal at the 2022 Winter Olympics. After placing third in the men’s super-G final, he won the first medal, a bronze. After that, he won silver in the men’s combined slalom event.
Aleksander Kilde is also the Junior World Champion in giant slalom. Kilde began skiing when he was six years old. Given that his family grew up near a ski hill, it was only logical that he would follow in the footsteps of his older brother Andreas.
He wasn’t always a ski racer, though. Few people are aware that Aleksander Aamodt Kilde also played football. However, when he realised he needed to concentrate on only one discipline, he selected alpine skiing.
He is a World Champion in his own right, having won the World Cup over title for the 2019-20 season.
How did Mikaela Shiffrin and Aleksander Kilde meet?
Mikaela Shiffrin confirmed to Reuters that the two had met roughly seven years ago. It was most likely during the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup in 2015 or 2016.
Kilde approached Mikaela and greeted her, according to Mikaela. He was the one who was the first to send her a friend request. Shiffrin, on the other hand, declined to date Aleksander when he asked her out.
Mikaela had believed she was being playful at first, so there was definitely some misunderstanding. Kilde, on the other hand, understood it as a rejection.
Despite this, the two maintained a friendly relationship. Mikaela Shiffrin lost her father in 2021, and Kilde sustained a season-ending injury at the same time.
As a result, the two began to bond through a difficult period in their lives. Kilde reached out to Shiffrin with a kind and encouraging message for her family after she returned to the sport following her father’s death, according to Shiffrin. “This time, we just didn’t stop talking,” Mikaela explained.
Mikaela Shiffrin and Aleksander Kilde romantically involved in May 2021, and it was Aleksander Kilde who announced it to the public. He had announced their romance on Instagram, and the two of them have been dating ever since.
It isn’t all roses for the duo, though, as their skiing schedules are rather demanding. Shiffrin remarked that they frequently travel in opposite directions throughout the world.
Even though they are thousands of miles apart, the two manage to do their best. According to Mikaela Shiffrin, they are aware of one other’s responsibilities and engagements, which makes life easier for the couple even when they are apart.
Shiffrin also expressed her gratitude for the fact that they don’t have to separate their personal and professional life. Mikaela stated of their partnership, “We share in each other’s successes and losses.”
