Lindsey Vonn Tweets Fierce War Cry For 'Likely' Last Olympic Downhill Race

Lindsey Vonn Tweets Fierce War Cry For 'Likely' Last Olympic Downhill Race

"It's downhill, it's high speed, it's big air, you really have to have some guts to send it down, I think that's what I have and what Sofia has too, that's why I like her so much", vonn said. "I tried so hard and I worked my butt off. But I'm proud of my performance". I'm not going to back down. It's been a fun ride.

"It's sad. This is my last downhill".

"I love racing in the Olympics", Vonn said.

"It's so rewarding. Of course I would have liked a gold medal but this is awesome and I am so proud", she told NBC after competing in Alpine skiing on Wednesday. "He said there's two places in the race, first and last, and I only want one of them".

Before the results, the skier vowed to give everything she had in an emotional Instagram post on February 19.

None was forthcoming. Even so, as she also said, "I am enjoying every second of being here".

She said: "It's not about putting that on her, it's just that she has so much experience". Our family never gives up, and I never gave up. While being interviewed by NBC, the skier struggled to hold back tears.

Over coffee last November at Lindsey Vonn's home in Colorado, Sofia Goggia of Italy asked her friend for some advice.

How to Watch Chelsea vs. Barcelona
Brazilian worldwide Willian is in scintillating form heading into Tuesday's showdown against Barcelona at Stamford Bridge . The 30-year-old said they just kept on shouting Barca before continuing their training for the evening.

Her silver would turn to bronze when Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway turned in a surprise silver-medal run as the 19th racer on the course.

So the questions for Thursday afternoon are intriguing: Can Shiffrin, 22, complete a slalom leg two seconds faster than Vonn?

In what is expected to be Vonn's final Olympic race, the 33-year-old failed to add to the downhill gold she won in Vancouver eight years ago.

Although Austria's Anna Veith, the super-G silver-medal victor, has decided not to compete in the downhill, the Austrians always have a challenger with Cornelia Huetter's win at Lake Louise, in Canada, on the World Cup circuit in December, a warning that she could be an outside threat, as could Switzerland's Michelle Gisin. "If all works, she's going to win it".

"I said, 'I wish one day I can be there racing at the top, '" Goggia said.

Ten gold medals are on offer on day 13 of the Pyeongchang Olympics. My body just probably can't take another four years, but I'm proud.

At an Olympics where nearly nothing went according to Shiffrin's plan, from the wind that wreaked havoc with her ambitious goal of skiing all five disciplines on the mountain to the banishment of boyfriend Mathieu Faivre from the French ski team for unsportsmanlike conduct, two medals is an awesome haul.

Henrik Kristoffersen had no regrets despite blowing a golden opportunity to win his first Olympic title in the slalom at the Pyeongchang Olympics on Thursday.
