Lindsey Vonn shares pic showing skis burned out on bronze medal run

The Pyeongchang Olympics were supposed to be a redemption tour of sorts, as Vonn again battled back from multiple injuries over the past year and secured bronze in her signature event, the downhill. She pressed her gloves against her face. How does she deal with the expectations? Miller did it. Vonn, too.

Upon the close of these Olympics - Olympics in which she was a focal point, even though she is just 22 and could appear two or even three more times - the results can be analyzed both by what actually played out and what was possible.

The Russian women's hockey team was going up against Finland for the bronze medal. But the moment was golden. He died in November, but Vonn felt that she achieved something in his name at these Games. Shiffrin has now competed in five Olympic events over the past two Games.

But Albert and Lois Muir adopted her in 1976 and raised her in Trenton, Michigan.

It's not quite the end of the line for Vonn, but the line is in sight. "I am not going to quit until I get that record, that is for sure, no matter how much pain I am in", Vonn said. "It's sad. This is my last downhill".

After medaling in the women's alpine downhill final, Lindsey broke down with emotion. That's not Vonn. The reason she has ended up on her back and her head and her side, skidding down so many of these slopes around the globe, is because not doing it is not an option.

Shiffrin came down three skiers after Vonn.

"I wanted to go out guns blazing, and I did", she said. "I'm going to miss it a lot". "I wish I could keep skiing". While she negotiated this less-than-fiendish Jeongseon course unscathed, she recognised that the task of holding her battered body together for Beijing 2022 was as daunting as it was unnecessary. "I don't know if I could fill Lindsey's shoes, the way that she has worn them", Shiffrin said.

"My sister stayed with me all afternoon and all evening".

"I mean, it's incredible what she's able to accomplish", Vonn told Associated Press. Goggia skied fifth and took the lead.

Vonn charged forward, but a dozen seconds later she was reeling.

However, Vonn went off the course in the slalom session after straddling a gate about 10 seconds into her run, meaning she could not add to the bronze medal she claimed in the downhill a day earlier.

To Vonn, it was as good as gold. In their letter of appreciation, the South Korean men said they expressed their thanks for what they call her grandfather's contribution for the freedom of South Korea.

"Because you can have a lot of training and be in that speed mentality, it's great and I can be really fast".

But from the moment IN took a 61-59 lead on Josh Newkirk's layup with 3:54 left IN regulation, it was a cliffhanger. The Ohio State Buckeyes are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.2 rebounds per game.

"It was important to me", she said, "to focus at the Olympics on my skiing, not the medals".

There's an outside chance she's not done, though the bookies in Las Vegas would be wise not to lay down a line.

Shiffrin also won a gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Games, making her one of only four American Alpine racers to have won three or more Olympic medals.

"It's a longshot", she said. For a 33-year-old whose limbs have been splayed on mountains from Colorado to Cortina, that is a singular achievement that must be viewed through the long lens of her career. She plans to continue racing, but can't possibly see an Olympics at the age of 37 with the toll it has taken on her body.

'I definitely have a different perspective than the last time I was on the Olympic podium. "And I think he would be proud of that".

"I don't think I can fill her shoes the way she has worn them".

"I'm satisfied with my performance today".
