In tears, Lindsey Vonn says body can't take 4 more years

21 February 2018

Lindsey Vonn cast a quick glance toward the sky after finishing what was likely her final Olympic downhill run, shrugged her shoulders at seeing her time and shook a friendly index finger at her good friend. Though she is just eighth in the World Cup standings, Mowinckel captured the silver in the giant slalom a few days prior and looked comfortable on the South Korean slopes.

Vonn took to Twitter earlier today to write about the race. "If I'm nervous then I'm going to lose anyway, so what's the point?" "You can't get too sentimental right now because I still have to race". I have no regrets.

"I'm so proud to have competed with such awesome girls", Vonn said of her competitors and fellow Team U.S.A. members.

Vonn grew emotional at the end of the race, breaking down as she told reporters that she was sad it was her final downhill race.

All eyes will be on Yevgenia Medvedeva and Alina Zagitova, both on the Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation team, who are locked in a particularly tight battle and both aiming for the gold medal.

If she wins a medal in PyeongChang, she'll be the oldest woman in Alpine skiing history to climb an Olympic podium.

Although Austria's Anna Veith, the super-G silver-medal victor, has decided not to compete in the downhill, the Austrians always have a challenger with Cornelia Huetter's win at Lake Louise, in Canada, on the World Cup circuit in December, a warning that she could be an outside threat, as could Switzerland's Michelle Gisin.

"I'm just counting on some medical miracles to extend my career, " she said Tuesday with a grin.

"I think we just played confident, and the chemistry is continuing to grow, and it's finally meshing".

Vonn purchased the 4,000-square-foot home in 2016, in the same year it was built, for $3.55 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Day 11 of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games kicks off with curling and biathlon in the morning.

The 22-year-old finished 0.48 seconds back after her first run-a significant deficit to make up-and that performance may have been the product of an illness. Before the Olympics, Vonn said she would turn down an invitation to visit the White House if she wins a gold medal.

"No, that's what bullies want you to do, " Vonn said.

In an exciting game that went into overtime, the Czech Republic defeated the US men's hockey team in a penalty shot shootout, scoring twice to USA's zero. I may not be as vocal right now with my opinions, but that doesn't mean they've won.
