"An emotional day all around because this is probably my last Olympic downhill", Vonn said.
Shiffrin has emerged as the next star of the U.S. Alpine skiing team but the 22-year-old dismissed the idea she is taking over from Vonn. Could Vonn possibly summon a "miracle", as she called it, a slalom performance from somewhere in her past to make a lead from the downhill portion stand up? He was stationed in Jeongseon, not far from where Vonn competed the past two weeks.

Alan Kildow broke into tears Thursday while talking about his father's memories of South Korea during the war. It was later confirmed the skier had suffered tears to the medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligaments in her right knee as well as a fractured tibial plateau.
Vonn, generally considered the greatest female ski racer in history, was in strong form heading into these Olympics, winning the last three World Cup downhills she entered beforehand. She snatched victory with her final jump worth a near maximum 96 points for a total of 185 ahead of 177.5 for Anderson, deprived of her second gold of the Games following her earlier victory in slopestyle.
About 37,000 USA troops were killed during the war, which ended in an armistice, not a peace treaty, technically leaving the Korean Peninsula in a state of war. "There's not many people who do all of those really well".
