American Lindsey Vonn takes bronze in likely final Olympic downhill race

Vonn's beautiful tribute to late grandpa in South Korea

Vail's Vonn is by far the most accomplished woman to ever strap on a pair of skis, but when the second leg of the combined event - the slalom - finally arrived later on Thursday, it was clear that the Olympic torch had been passed from one Colorado athlete to another.

Looking ahead: Vonn's next event is the much-anticipated Alpine combined, in which she'll compete alongside Mikaela Shiffrin.

"I am hoping that is just one season".

Mowinckel was unable to match Gisin or Shiffrin in slalom, and finished fourth - ensuring Shiffrin would get at least a bronze.

But Vonn insisted she would break Ingemar Stenmark's World Cup record of 86 wins.

After winning gold in Vancouver - where she also took super-G bronze - she missed Sochi because of a knee injury and struggled for much of last season after breaking her arm and suffering nerve damage in her hand.

The 22-year-old has already won matched Vonn's tally of three Olympic medals and the latter suggested her teammate had plenty of time to win more.

It was, she said, "a mental roller coaster".

Police found the person of interest after a traffic stop by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and state police in Kankakee, Ill. " These are the kinds of tragedies that keep police officers working without sleep ", Johnson told the Chicago Sun-Times.

"I'll take a lot of great memories with me", said Vonn on what could well be her Olympic farewell. "My body just can't take another four years".

Vonn, 33, became the oldest female Alpine skiing medalist in Olympic history when she claimed the downhill bronze medal in PyeongChang.

In the men's ski halfpipe, American defending champion David Wise kept his nerve despite crashing out of his first two runs to seal a gripping victory on the final attempt.

Bradie Tennell of the United States falls while competing during the Ladies Single Skating Short Program on day twelve of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Gangneung Ice Arena on February 21, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea. "I didn't even know how many I would ski", she said.

She's also a snowboarder, though, and instead of entering the Alpine downhill, she will switch to her other sport and try to qualify Thursday in the parallel giant slalom.

"It's really nice to be at the end of it", she said, "and know that I do have two medals". "So it nearly takes the pressure off, which is a good thing for me, because then I can just ski free and see what happens". "But I'm proud of my performance". "I really want to keep racing forever, but I can't". She stopped her run after the mistake knowing that she would not medal and did not finish the course.

"I'm sad. This is my last downhill", Vonn told NBC.

And while she couldn't shut them up with the women's downhill gold she wanted so badly - she was rightly proud of third place in her final Games.
