Olympic results 2018: Lindsey Vonn wins bronze medal in downhill

Lindsey Vonn

The Olympian was consoled at the finish after her Super-G race didn't go as planned. She ultimately tied for sixth place.

"I am so surprised about all of it. Of course, I would have loved a gold medal but, honestly, this is incredible and I'm so proud".

Vonn is considered the person to beat in the downhill.

Veith had looked set to become the first woman to defend an Olympic super-G title until Ledeka's sensational run, clocked at one minute 21.11 seconds.

"If you think what's happened over the last eight years and what I've been through to get here, I gave it all and to come away with a medal is a dream come true", said Vonn who missed the Sochi through injury.

As Ledecka thundered down the mountain at Jeongseon Alpine Center, she recorded her fastest intervals at the bottom of the course, making her result even more astounding to those watching.

Vonn will have once more chance at a medal when she skis in her final race of the Olympics on Wednesday in the ladies combined event. In an incredible display of sportsmanship, Weirather immediately embraced Mowinckel by the finish line, seconds after losing an Olympic medal. "Sometimes I have a tendency to get too aggressive".

Those were the Games where Franz Klammer turned in his epic, on-the-edge gold medal run in the men's downhill, prompting Nelson to joke, "Franz, I'm still polishing my bronze and it hasn't turned to gold yet". I think the terrain just caught me a little bit. "And it didn't quite turn out the way I'd hoped". "I was really focused. I know that she can take a lot of risks". "I couldn't have done it much better than this, this was my best downhill ever".

"Never say last with Lindsey", her sister Laura Kildow said when asked by Reuters whether the skier would have been happy with bronze in her last race.

"I still don't realize I'm first", Goggia said. Usually I'm pretty chaotic (but) I focused on all the tiny things I had to perform to do my downhill.

"I did the best I could. But I'm happy to do that - that's sportsmanship". "It might not be a medal, but I definitely gave it everything I had". "Cross your fingers that the wind dies down for a fair race!"

"It just depends on my knee".

"Oh yeah, I love what I do".

"I wish Kevin could have been with me on the podium but maybe next time he can have the same feeling that I do now after being fourth in Sochi", he added. Unfortunately, my body is not the Terminator. But the Italian said: "Vonn's definitely the favourite, she has so much experience".

Olympic gold medalist and former U.S. soccer player Julie Foudy said she was "sickened and disgusted" by some of the tweets after Vonn's event.

The American great became the oldest female Alpine skier at 33 to make the Winter Olympics podium when she finished third in Wednesday's downhill race as friend Sophia Goggia of Italy took gold.
