NBC's Lindsey Vonn Show takes home Olympic bronze

21 February 2018

"It's a different point in my career", she said. Now she doesn't have to worry the invitation, perhaps a silver - or should that be bronze - lining to these Games.

In the first two individual events of Shim's PyeongChang schedule, however, the skater failed to meet her potential.

After the race, Goggia said, "I'm happy about my performance". I wish I could keep going you know?

Vonn now has 81 World Cup triumphs and to get the six more she needs to become the most successful skier of all-time could well take her more than a single season. "Of course, I'd have loved a gold medal but, honestly, this is unbelievable and I'm so proud".

A source with knowledge of Vonn's thinking said that her use of such language was no accident.

She'd dedicated the Pyeongchang Games to her grandfather, Don Kildow, who died last November at the age of 88 - which only added to the emotions she carried with each trip down the hill.

It was an emotional win for Vonn, who posted on Twitter before the race that it will probably be her last downhill run.

Italian hearts embraced Sofia Goggia on Wednesday after a golden run down a slice of South Korean mountainside won her nation its first women's downhill Olympic title.

China (4-4) sit just outside a semi-final berth with one game to play against Sweden (5-2) and there is the possibility of three Asian teams making the last four. But Vonn doesn't listen to "most observers".

Vonn, meanwhile, will now turn her attention to the alpine combined, which was brought forward from Friday to Thursday.

American snowboard gold medalist Red Gerard hit the slopes again in the first round of snowboard big air. Shiffrin had initially planned to race in the downhill, but she opted out after scheduling changes due to weather stacked her events too close to one another.

"I love racing in the Olympics with so much pressure that you feel suffocated".

Hopes for another figure skating medal for Team USA were dashed early during the short program after top contenders Bradie Tennell and Mirai Nagasu fell moments into their routines.

"We found out we made history, but we're not satisfied with only just this", Korean coach Kim Min-jung said. I'm just counting on some medical miracles to extend my career a bit longer.

Astros prospect Forrest Whitley suspended 50 games for a drug of abuse
Houston Astros prospect and minor league pitcher Forrest Whitley has suspended 50 games, reports ESPN's Buster Olney . What's interesting here is Major League Baseball in the release didn't specify what exactly the suspension is for.

"I'm so thankful to be here, to be on the podium in what is likely to me my last Olympic downhill race", the United States great told reporters.

"I think that has been something that we've touched a little but not too much because it's hard not to provide the initial context that they come from a brutal regime and there's a lot of propaganda involved", Bell told Reuters.

Goggia gave a shrug after crossing the line knowing that Vonn, the most decorated female skier of all time, was going to be going out two spots behind her.

Vonn wears his initials "DK" on the side of her helmet as a tribute.

It has also been a hard few months for the American because of the "savage abuse" she has received on social media. "Everyone is, like, bowing to Lindsey".

"It's always an honour to take part in the same race as her and call her my friend".

Vonn won the bronze medal in the ladies downhill final, and although it's an objectively impressive achievement, an increasingly familiar anti-Vonn narrative emerged yet again in comment sections and on Twitter timelines everywhere.
