'I worked my butt off': Lindsey Vonn emotional after winning downhill bronze

'I worked my butt off': Lindsey Vonn emotional after winning downhill bronze 'I worked my butt off': Lindsey Vonn emotional after winning downhill bronze

Vonn, likely skiing in her last Winter Olympics, remains unrelenting in her stance, and hopes that social media is used in a more positive way.

After the race Vonn revealed she had invited Goggia to her house in November to discuss dealing with pressure and expectation. Usually I'm pretty chaotic (but) I focused on all the tiny things I had to perform to do my downhill. "It's the perspective that I think is important".

"I gave it all today, skied a great race". I'm proud to have competed for my country.

"She's an incredible competitor", Vonn said.

"I'm so thankful to be here, to be on the podium in what is likely to me my last Olympic downhill race", the USA great told reporters.

"I said, 'I wish one day I can be there racing at the top, '" Goggia said. "My body just can't take another four years".

Vonn won the bronze medal in the ladies downhill final, and although it's an objectively impressive achievement, an increasingly familiar anti-Vonn narrative emerged yet again in comment sections and on Twitter timelines everywhere.

The 25-year-old came in 0.09sec ahead of Norway's giant slalom silver medallist Ragnhild Mowinckel, with Vonn a further 0.42sec adrift. Vonn quipped while waiting, a reference to the super-G and the Czech Ester Ledeczka's surprise victory.

Goggia finished in a time of 1 minute, 39.22 seconds to hold off Mowinckel by 0.09 seconds.

Turning to her optimal bib number, Vonn said she would wait until she saw which number Italian rival and close friend Sofia Goggia chose.

This particular track just seems to suit Goggia's aggressive skiing.

Vonn grew emotional at the end of the race, breaking down as she told reporters that she was sad it was her final downhill race. The No. 1-ranked downhill racer in the world this season, the 25-year-old Goggia found the flawless line between speed and disaster and mastered it down the 2,775-meter course.

If anyone is evidence that desire and results don't always match, it's the most successful alpine skier in USA history, Lindsey Vonn. It was the first time in 78 years of Olympic Alpine skiing there were double gold medals. On Wednesday, knowing some will relish in her failure to win gold, she had a message for her haters. "I'm trying to accept that and enjoy the ride".

"I'm very proud to hold the American flag on the podium".

"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", Vonn said.

The downhill course for Wednesday's race had 38 gates, with a vertical drop of 2,395 feet over a length of 9,104 feet. When the Alpine combined was moved a day forward to Thursday, Shiffrin elected to skip the downhill race rather than compete in back-to-back days.

Her other sister Karin Kildow quickly jumped in: "Never say never", before adding her preferred choice of language: "Most likely last".

"I won today and I beat her, but it's always an honour to race with Lindsey Vonn".

Two Americans finished fifth and seventh: Alice McKennis and Breezy Johnson.
