Weather continues to complicate alpine ski events, Shiffrin to skip downhill

Lindsey Vonn's long road back to the Olympics ends with one bad turn

Since Mikaela Shifrin will not be competing in the downhill event, Vonn represents the lone USA hope in alpine skiing's most glamorous and storied event. "I love what I do", Vonn said.

The Coloradan is referring to her three rescue dogs, Lucy, Leo and Bear. Both women took part in the team event earlier in the Olympics, and both put on spectacular performances.

Of the three, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Lucy, is the biggest celebrity. The combined event, Vonn's last in PyeongChang, was originally slated for Friday in Korea, but has been rescheduled for Thursday due to weather.

More than just a fluffy mascot, Lucy is a huge comfort for Vonn, especially when she's on the road.

"If I had won the three trainings, may-be that I would have thought differently", said Shiffrin, satisfied with her decision not to compete in the downhill, because it will have a day of extra rest. Though she is just eighth in the World Cup standings, Mowinckel captured the silver in the giant slalom a few days prior and looked comfortable on the South Korean slopes.

Vonn divorced her husband Thomas Vonn in 2011.

Shiffrin, who won Olympic gold in the giant slalom last week, chose to sit out the downhill when the Alpine combined was moved a day forward to Thursday due to weather concerns. "You have to work on your body, but you also have to work on your mind". She had already elected to skip the Super G to prepare for the downhill.

Italy's Sofia Goggia, who edged Vonn in March to win the only World Cup downhill ever raced on this track, called Ledecka's double duty "one of the coolest things in the whole Olympics".

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

Barring that miracle, Wednesday's downhill at Jeongseon Alpine Centre, where she faces a strong challenge from Italian Sofia Goggia, will be her final opportunity to add to the downhill gold and super-G bronze she won in Vancouver in 2010.

Vonn posted a photo on Instagram announcing the adoption, saying that Leo had been hit by a auto and also has a bad knee. "Count on it", she wrote. She missed a full season and the start of the next, briefly returned, then had season-ending surgery on her other knee.

"I think people saw tonight we have a very fast team and a team that can play good hockey", Terry said.

Vonn has even created an Instagram account for her pooches - the "Vonndogs" - which has 29.1K followers. The responses - often profane or threatening - had nothing to do with her skiing. Meyers Taylor should vie for gold, but she isn't the only American with medal potential: 2014 Olympic bronze medalist Jamie Greubel Poser won the overall World Cup title in 2017.

Donato got his second goal of the game, and now leads all US scorers, late in the third period on a power-play, firing a wrist shot that beat Laco just inside the near post to complete the scoring.

Despite missing nearly two years of skiing since the Sochi Games and modest support herself, Small wants to help in bringing about change.
