COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) — Mikaela Shiffrin says her mending back is feeling better.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist recently went through double training sessions with only a little stiffness in her back. She described it as manageable.

Shiffrin is a long way from where she was a few weeks ago when her training was hampered by an ailment that she likened to a muscle spasm or strain.

She’s still intent on not sitting out any upcoming World Cup races, starting next weekend with slalom races in Levi, Finland.
