Lindsey Vonn says her body "can't take another four years" after she became the oldest woman to claim a Winter Olympics alpine skiing medal.

"No. 1 hasn't been a good number for me", Vonn said on the eve of her signature race.

World champion Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn responded to trolls on Twitter who blasted her after she failed to medal during the women's Super-G in Pyeongchang.

"I wanted desperately to win for him", she said.

"I'm so proud to have competed with such fantastic girls", Vonn said of her competitors and fellow Team U.S.A. members.

USA speed queen Lindsey vonn insisted she would not get sentimental about what will likely be her last Olympic downhill on Wednesday, saying instead she felt like "a million bucks" going into the blue riband event.

"I love racing in the Olympics, I love racing, being in the start gate with so much pressure you feel suffocated, but somehow you will yourself to give everything you have and you throw yourself down mountain in hopes of a medal".

She said, "I did the best I could". The Italian star could still lose her hold on the World Cup title in the downhill when the season wraps up after the Olympics, but Goggia capped her season with the winning run on the world's biggest stage.

South Korea's plan to convince President Trump to visit North Korea
There were suggestions that Lazarus, the collective that launched the attack on Sony has links to the North Korean regime. These targets, together with the times of day that attacks happen, strongly point to North Korea, FireEye said.

"I still haven't quite realised yet", she said on her victory.

The reluctance to talk of a definitive end to her Olympic career reflected her understanding that even though she would be 37 when Beijing comes around, there is no need to rule herself out at this stage.

"It was intense", she said. At the age of 33, Vonn made history Wednesday in Pyeongchang, South Korea, as the oldest Olympic female alpine medalist. I wish I could keep going, you know?

Trolled on social media, Lindsey Vonn has a message for the people targeting her online - they haven't "won".

Since first tearing her ACL in 2007, Vonn has suffered frequent knee ligament injuries as well as broken bones and missed the 2014 Sochi Games due to a serious knee injury she has been managing it ever since.

Vonn dedicated her Olympics to her late grandfather, Don Kildow, who died last November at age 88.

Still, she said she would have raced the downhill if there was still a day off before the combined as scheduled. Nothing would make me happier than seeing her win one for this great country.

While she plans to compete in the combined Thursday (organizers moved the event up by a day because of the high winds expected to move into the area), the downhill is her signature race, one she has dominated like few others in the sport.
