Lindsey Vonn Makes a Guarantee Ahead of Potential Final Olympics Race

In what will likely be her last Olympic downhill race, USA alpine skier Lindsey Vonn won the bronze medal in her best event.

The 25 year-old sizzled in bib No.5, tearing down the course at Jeongseon Alpine Centre in 1 minute, 39.22 seconds to claim a victory margin of 0.09 seconds. American great Lindsey Vonn sat sixth in the competition delayed by one hour due to strong wind, reports Xinhua news agency.

"She asked me how to deal with the pressure and expectation and I told her, which probably helped her", Vonn said after finishing third.

"I always try to remember that is people talking behind a computer, and they are going to say anything, and the most important thing is that I am having a good time, I am enjoying being at the Olympics, my family is here, they love me", she said Monday. She said, "I have two more races left, so I hope those will go a little bit better". Mowinkel missed out on gold by just nine one-hundredths of a second. She now has three career Olympic medals - one gold and two bronzes. It just gives me more motivation going into these Olympics.

For the first time in Olympic history, the US placed three skiers in the top 10 of women's downhill.

World Champion Sofia Goggia of Italy won gold, while Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway took silver.

Vonn's races again Thursday in the combined event, where she's an outside chance to win gold.

Four years ago, Slovenia's Tina Maze and Switzerland's Dominique Gisin tied for the downhill title with the same time down to the hundredth of a second.

Now Ledecka turns her focus from two planks to one, with the women's parallel giant slalom starting on February 24.

Vonn had a fast run going before going too wide on a turn near the bottom. I'm happy that I hung on and still was able to finish the course. Vonn, 33, is now the oldest woman to win an Alpine skiing medal. Johnson competed with five other skiers for the opportunity to compete in the finals, but she was never in contention to make it to the podium as she finished with a 1:40.34.

After Vonn failed to medal in the super-G last week, a slew of posts by supporters of President Trump, often using profane or threatening language, celebrated the result.

"Performance-wise I was so happy to lay down a pretty solid long and unfortunately the short program didn't go the way that I wanted it to". "I'm looking forward to cheering on our girls racing in the downhill and to compete myself in Thursday's combined".
