Lindsey Vonn makes her Olympic return

Lindsey Vonn

Vonn still has a chance of winning an Olympic title at these Games, which she said were "most likely to be her last".

Sofia Goggia is not known for her elegant style.

Then again, shocking finishes seem to be the norm on this hill.

Shiffrin trained on the downhill course both Sunday and Monday, but she has not competed in a speed race - either downhill or super-G - since early January. Mowinkel missed out on gold by just nine-one-hundredths of a second.

With only a handful of racers still to go, Czech racer Ester Ledecka appeared poised for gold with a mark of 1:21.11, which was 0.38 seconds ahead of Vonn.

"I skied a great race today", Vonn also said.

But the American made history as she became the oldest female medallist in alpine skiing at the Olympics, beating a record previously held by Austria's Michaela Dorfmeister, who won the downhill and the Super-G at the Turin Olympics at the age of 32. "I just wish he was here and could have watched me".

"Of course I would have liked a gold medal", Vonn said. My body just probably can't take another four years, but I'm proud. In a way, this was her "defense".

"The last eight years have been full of ups and downs", she said, "a lot of downs, I'd say, especially from 2013 until now. You just have to get up and keep going". In December she told CNN, "I want to represent our country well".

As the garrulous Goggia talked through her triumph, Malago smiled.

Sofia Goggia entered the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang with a narrow lead on Lindsey Vonn in the FIS World Cup downhill standings. But each pointed to the other as the one to watch in the days leading up to the race. At those Winter Games, Vonn saw her name atop the leaderboard and let loose a resounding scream as she crumpled to the snow, the first American woman to win the event. Goggia posted a time of 1:39.22, laying claim to the top of the leader board.

Cantlay stumbled after the turn though, dropping shots after encountering tree-trouble on the 12th and 13th holes. He splashed out of the sand and the ball rolled into the pin and disappeared into the cup for an unlikely birdie.

Most consider her the favorite, and she looked good in training runs. There is one more training season Tuesday. I still have to be focused. I moved like a Samurai. "I took an L for the day. you win some, you lose some". I believed in myself. "Ski racing is an individual sport".

"I remain in awe of the women that dominate in our sports", Shaw said.

Supporters of the president were outraged by her comments and some took to Twitter to state they were happy seeing Vonn fall during her event.

Vonn has dedicated these Games to her grandfather, Don Kildow, who died in November. It paid off, as she pushed Weirather off the podium and relegated Vonn to bronze.

"I think in the end, it made me a stronger person".

The wind is messing with Mikaela Shiffrin's Olympics.

Along the way, her ACLs were worked over so many times you can't help but wonder if there's any original tissue left in her knees.

The team event, an attempt by the governing International Ski Federation to refresh the Alpine program, will be contested by 16 teams on a knockout basis with the winners of the final round taking gold.

Asked by AFP in Pyeongchang if she was "anti-American" - a barb directed at her by her detractors - she said: "That's so far from the truth".

"So if I could physically continue skiing then I absolutely will".
