Wendy Holdener of Switzerland earned the bronze. She didn't finish the slalom that time. To get to this point, Shiffrin began skiing when she was two, under the guidance of her parents Jeff, an anesthesiologist, and Eileen, a former intensive care nurse, who were both strong skiers in their own right.
"Coming here, I knew that I could be a threat for a medal in at least three disciplines".
Shiffrin , who won the giant slalom gold in Pyeongchang but could only finish fourth in her favoured slalom, was nearly a second back, while another Swiss racer, Wendy Holdener, claimed bronze.
Vonn also led after the downhill leg at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
Add another medal to Shiffrin's burgeoning collection. "I started off with a bang and ending with a medal on the podium is really cool".
"It's frustrating because in my mind I know what I'm capable of and my body doesn't follow", she added. "After the gold in the giant slalom, I was really hopeful and positive". And before that I did one day of slalom training before Christmas.
The Swiss ski racer captured the women's Olympic Alpine combined yesterday with an aggressive slalom run to beat Mikaela Shiffrin. The combined, the last individual ski race of the 2018 Winter Games, was their only head-to-head matchup in South Korea. She's endured a lengthy list of injuries. But there was still a feeling that the baton has been passed.
The moment was, in fact, a scene almost a year in the making, one whose flash point came last March when Shiffrin, 22, ascended to the title of world's best women's skier - a designation the 33-year-old Vonn had passionately guarded as her own for many years.
"I think next season", Vonn said, "I can get it done".
"It was the biggest moment of my life when she won that gold and I think today was one of the biggest moments of our lives".
Despite losing some time midway through the course, Shiffrin powered through to the bottom to take first place, 0.47sec ahead of Holdener. "You don't realize the amount of every single thing she's done every day for the last eight years has been for this day and that 2 minutes", said Vonn's sister, Karin Kildow.
