Mikaela Shiffrin's Boyfriend Mathie Faivre Responds After Being Sent Home from Olympics

French skier Mathieu Faivre, the boyfriend of USA Olympian Mikaela Shiffrin is speaking out to apologize after he was sent home from the 2018 Winter Olympics after a comment he made about his teammates.

Faivre was upset after he placed seventh in the Men’s Giant Slalom event and said he was “disgusted with the result” after three of his French teammates placed ahead of him.

“I’m here to race for myself only,” he added (via BBC). “I felt I was skiing well in the second run but when I saw where I’d finished it was like a slap in the face.”

The director of the French men’s skiing team said that Faivre would be sent home from the games “for disciplinary reasons.”

Faivre wrote a message to his fans on social media to apologize for his comments. “No one reacts in the same way to failure and I have to admit, coming from the south, I may tend to have hot blood. So words have crossed my mind,” he said. “I did not want to disrespect anyone, I was extremely proud to represent my country and I thank all those who made this possible.”
