Team USA Women's Hockey Wins Gold Medal

To come away with a bronze may have been disappointing for some but for me it was awesome.

That event meanwhile did have one American medalist, as the heir to Vonn's throne Mikaela Shiffrin took home silver. He died in November, but Vonn felt that she achieved something in his name at these Games.

The American wasn't at Sochi in 2014, instead "on the couch, watching", she said, after two operations to fix torn ligaments in her right knee.

While the 2014 Olympics went on without her, Vonn was home watching on the couch, vowing that wouldn't be the final chapter of her time as an Olympian. She arrived in South Korea to chatter about entering five, but after a series of weather-related schedule changes, wound up dropping two. Vonn's total of three includes downhill gold and super-G bronze at Vancouver in 2010.

"It's so rewarding. Of course I would have liked a gold medal but this is unbelievable and I am so proud", she told NBC after competing in Alpine skiing on Wednesday. "You never know. That's why you have to appreciate every moment that you have here". But at the moment she's got the world by the tail, time on her side and hard-won experience sizing up, managing and beating back the most heightened of expectations, exponents all of a attractive mind.

"It's incredible what she's able to accomplish, and she's so young", Vonn said. "But I'm on the podium, so I'm very happy". He has 86 wins and I have 81... I'm not going to be nervous. This time, Goggia was not great at the outset, almost fell backward while landing a jump midway through, then was terrific on the final third of the course.

"I knew I had a competitive time, but I didn't know if it would be enough for gold", Goggia said. Now it's time to break one more record before I close out my career; catch Ingemar Stenmark's World Cup win record.

Vonn went two racers later, the seventh starter overall, and kept losing ground throughout. For me, it is huge to know that I can now put down fast times in pretty much any event and contend for medals in multiple events. "I wish that my body didn't hurt as bad as it does".

With emotions running high on Wednesday, she savoured her bronze medal performance as if it were the last of her career. "You've got one chance". She's fractured her arm, her wrist, her thumb, pinkie finger, ankle.

"We saw each other and she pointed at me, like, You again!"

Vonn had been skiing in honor of her grandfather while in PeyongChang, and had his initials written in the side of her helmet. "And I tried everything I could to win for him", she said, per ESPN.

Her formative years skiing came on the 150-foot hill he built on an old cow pasture in Milton, Wisconsin. "I'll probably cry later on but think I'm all tapped out right now".

The time spent in hospitals, the wait to get back on this stage, helped make the meaning clear.

Shiffrin said she had been through the emotional wringer in South Korea and hoped she could carry the passion for her sport back from Pyeongchang as she continues her pursuit for more World Cup titles.
