Goggia wins Olympic downhill, Vonn third

Getty						Lindsey Vonn looks to add to her medal collection at the 2018 Winter Olympics

She will now focus her energy on Thursday's combined, which adds the times of a downhill and one run of slalom, her specialist discipline.

"I remember when she won in Vancouver and I said "I wish I can be there racing at the top".

Vonn may be done with the Olympics after Pyeongchang, but she plans to continue competing in the World Cup until she wins at least five more races.

"If you think what's happened over the last eight years and what I've been through to get here, I gave it all and to come away with a medal is a dream come true", said Vonn who missed the Sochi through injury.

"There had to be a lot of emotion in today's race, and that finally released at the finish", he added.

Glenwood Springs racer Alice McKennis had the race of her life, finishing fifth.

Sofia Goggia is not known for her elegant style.

West Brom have opened their own investigation into the matter and a conclusion is not expected for another fortnight. The pair were instrumental in appointing Pardew as Tony Pulis's successor.

Vonn, 33, admitted - albeit with a smile - that she was "counting on some medical miracles to extend my career".

Lindsey Vonn is not planning to change her mind or stop saying what she thinks, no matter what attacks folks might send her way via social media.

She is not retiring just yet though.

The altered Olympic program of back-to-back race days has not helped Mikaela Shiffrin.

Then, though, Ragnhild Mowinckel, silver medalist in giant slalom for Norway's first woman's Alpine medal since 1936, running from the 19th position, snuck into second place, dropping Vonn to third.

That plan seemed overly ambitious, if not unrealistic, and was scrapped nearly immediately after high winds forced several events to be postponed to later days.

She also owns four downhill world championships medals, including a gold in 2009.

Numerous new features, the petition argues, are "useless or defeats the original purposes Snapchat has had for the past years". For example, you can take a snap of a group of people and attach an animated smiley to all of their faces.

Vonn was considered the favorite to win Wednesday.

"Tomorrow I will push out of the starting gate in what will most likely be my last Olympic Downhill race".

Goggia said she skied from the head rather than the heart. With my grandfather passing, it's his father and it makes you realize how short life is.

Not like she did in the super-G on Saturday.

Lindsey Vonn has enjoyed an eventful first week and half at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Her Twitter account was flooded with nasty comments after her stumble cost her a shot at a medal. "I feel like a million bucks", the upbeat American said after a second training run on the 2.8km-long Jeongseon course. "And you know, I just take it for what it is. At some point, you just have to laugh and say it is completely ridiculous". I have to look at a video, but I thought I executed the line perfectly. More of myself.however there's only one thing I can guarantee; I will give everything I have tomorrow. "But you can't get too sentimental right now, because I still have to race". Another medal-heavy day in Pyeongchang.

"I am so surprised about all of it".

Icing possible through Tuesday, especially north of Madison
Monday's high in Madison was 39, 7 degrees above normal and 23 degrees below the record high of 62 for February 19, set in 2017. Total ice accumulations from this storm may be between 0.1 and 0.2 of an inch in areas north of Dane County.
