Lindsey Vonn's opener, super-G, delayed because of wind

Lindsey Vonn visibly frustrated after not medaling in Super-G

United States' Lindsey Vonn walks through the mixed zone after finishing women's downhill training at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Jeongseon South Korea Monday Feb. 19 2018

But for now, Vonn becomes the oldest female Alpine skiing medalist in Olympics history and just the third American to cpature three Olympic Alpine skiing medals.

And Vonn, one of the most successful skiers of all time, said she plans to avoid speaking out again for the time being after she was subjected to abuse on Twitter for her opinions. "But I'm proud to be competing for my country, giving it all - and proud to come away with a medal".

"I wanted to win so much because of him", she said.

"As much as I wanted to compete in the Olympic downhill, with the schedule change it's important for me to focus my energy on preparing for the combined", said Shiffrin in a statement. My family's here. They love me, and of course there's going to be people that hate me and hope I ski off a cliff and die. But the 25-year-old racer seems to be enjoying the Korean snow and just four days earlier took silver in the women's super-G.

This is her third medal, along with her gold (downhill) and bronze (super-G) at the 2010 Vancouver Games.

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin dropped out of the downhill at the Pyeongchang Games so she can focus on the combined event that was moved to the following day. The best men's slalom skier, Marcel Hirscher, won the men's Olympic combined title at the Pyeongchang Games.

Vonn was the first skier out of the gate in the super-G and was putting together a really good run until the end when she had a bobble and veered off the course.

"If you think what's happened over the last eight years and what I've been through to get here, I gave it all". I'm not going to back down.

Vonn raced in seven World Cup downhill events this season, slowly finding her rhythm.

She blew a kiss to the sky to honor of her late grandfather, and then turned and saluted the crowd at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre.

"I wish I could keep going", Vonn said.

Vonn has 81 World Cup victories, most ever by a woman, just five behind Sweden's Ingemark Stenmark. Set against this prospect, a bronze in Pyeongchang could be put in proper perspective.

Vonn said she doesn't think her surgically repaired right knee will hold up until the 2022 Games in Beijing, but Kildow cited Roger Federer, 36, when asked about Vonn's future.

She explained: "He (my grandfather) was supposed to help me".

Mikaela Shiffrin, who made a decision to pull out of the downhill on Monday, took advantage of the final training run to prepare for the combined, which has been brought forward to Thursday because of forecast high winds. She also said she would not accept an invitation to the White House either. "And I don't think that there are a lot of people now in our government that do that". "I really want to keep racing forever, but I can't".

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

"It's a thrill and I also watch with the knowledge that it's a fleeting moment", said Tiger Shaw, president and CEO of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association.

"But who knows, something will come out and they'll fix my knee up and I'll be like "Robo-knee" and be able to ski 10 more years, that would be ideal". Vonn has been dealing with a lengthy list of injuries, including two operations to fix torn ligaments in her right knee that kept her out of the 2014 Sochi games.
