Bjoergen now most decorated Winter Olympian, US makes history in skiing

Gold medallist Diggins, speaking about the close finish, said: "For sure it is painful but we call it type-two fun, where it's painful in the moment and then afterwards you look back and then go, "wow, I just pushed myself so hard".

"I just took him (Savinainen) out of the play and he landed awkwardly on Scrivey", O'Dell said.

It was Choi Minjeong's second gold of the Games to go along with the one she claimed in the 1,500m while Shim Sukhee and Kim Alang also celebrated gold for a second time after helping South Korea to relay glory in Sochi.

The 33-year-old Vonn still managed to break the record for the oldest female medallist in Alpine skiing at the Winter Games, previously set by Michaela Dorfmeister at 32 years and 332 days when she won the women's super-G in 2006. "You can't get too sentimental right now because I still have to race". Canada has taken home the gold medal in this event at the last four Olympics. I struggled to try to keep the emotions together, but I left it all on the mountain like I said I would. "They've never won a medal at the Olympics, so it's a big thing".

"I didn't take any risks", Goggia added. I tried too hard to stay on a flawless line.

Alpine Skiing - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Women's Downhill - Jeongseon Alpine Centre - Pyeongchang, South Korea - February 21, 2018 - Sofia Goggia of Italy reacts during the victory ceremony.

Victory for Vonn would have made her the oldest female Olympic downhill victor in history, but Wednesday's loss has not damaged her status as the most successful female skier of all time.

Trudeau's appearances at some Sikh events where extremist supporters also showed up caused unhappiness in India. The Trudeaus tried to make the roti while their children Xavier James and Ella-Grace Margaret accompanied them.

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.

The silver medal went to Italy, while the Netherlands, the victor of the B finals, took bronze as two finalists - China and Canada - were disqualified due to impeding penalties.

Bjoergen won her 14th medal at the Winter Games by taking bronze with her Norwegian teammates on Wednesday in the team sprint. The Americans won the only Olympic gold in Nagano of Japan.

"During Sochi I was on the couch watching the Olympics after my second ACL surgery".

Hope for USA womens figure skating? "It's all worth it". "Its possible that well get back on the podium in the next couple of years, but sometimes life and puberty get in the way", he says.

While Vonn entered the race as a strong podium candidate, she was not necessarily the race's overwhelming favorite, which is still an unusual feeling.
