Lindsey Vonn knew the bronze medal she earned Wednesday came in her final Olympic downhill, the signature event of her singular career.
Vonn, who is 33, has said she will nearly certainly retire soon, and was true to her promise on social media the day before the downhill event: "There's only one thing I can guarantee - I will give everything I have".
Both Goggia and Mowinkel are 25 years old, the same age as Vonn when she won the Olympic downhill gold medal at the Olympic Winter Games Vancouver 2010. "I wanted desperately to win for him today", she said.
As she did before the super-G, she said, she plans to "absolutely give it everything I have", and with that, "I will be satisfied, no matter what".
"She's an wonderful competitor", Vonn said.
"I wish I could keep going; I had so much fun; I love what I do", she said. My body just probably can't take another four years, but I'm just proud.

I do not like to see today that we have three or four players out injured, but that is what we have now. With a long contract or not, it is day by day, that is what helps me be strong.
Barring a miracle comeback, this is nearly certainly the last Olympics for Vonn, whose pro career includes a streak of dominance from 2007 to 2012, when she mixed four overall championships with one second-place finish. "Sofia just skied better than I did", Vonn said, referring to the top finisher, Italy's Sofia Goggia.
At 33, this is likely her last Olympic downhill. In Wednesday's downhill, Mowinckel posted a time of 1:39.31, just 0.09 seconds out of first and 0.38 faster than Vonn.
The downhill is the second women's speed event in the Alpine skiing programme in Pyeongchang and promises to deliver plenty of excitement. There would surely be even more tears afterward when she reunited with her family, who all came to watch.
On Tuesday, Goggia said she had been struggling with a bothersome left knee.
"I feel like a real honor to be racing with the greatest skier of all time on the female side". Vonn was 0.47 seconds off Goggia's pace.
"The reason I missed that gate was that I didn't slip the line right, number one hasn't been a good number for me".

A spokesman for the bank declined to comment on JPMorgan's plans for the property when the new headquarters are complete. Construction of the new headquarters will create more than 8,000 jobs during the development period, the firm said.
Despite her astounding success in the sport, Vonn has found herself the target of intermittent abuse online after saying in December she would not visit the White House should she win a medal in Pyeongchang stating that she was representing America and not president Donald Trump. The combined, which includes a downhill run and a slalom run, is scheduled to take place Thursday morning in Pyeongchang, and both Shiffrin and Vonn will compete there in what will nearly surely be the final Olympic race ever for one of the best female racers to ever step into a pair of skis.
"The last eight years have been full of ups and downs". "I think my injuries made me stronger. I do".
"I won the gold in the 1,500 and event and gold today for the relay and I am very happy about that". "People really understand conditioning and you have the sports medicine, the physical therapists".
"She needed to go for it a little bit more, " he said. It's the third Olympic medal overall for Vonn. After crossing the finish, knowing gold was out of reach, Vonn showed no disappointment. Most us us have been injured pretty severely, and I'm so proud and happy to have been training with them.
Shiffrin arrived in South Korea favored to win multiple medals, only to finish fourth in Friday's slalom and forgo Saturday's super-G.
"I am just counting on some medical miracles to extend my career", she added.
