Lindsey Vonn overcomes grief to reach Olympics

The black gloves she wore to a pre-Olympics news conference Friday made that clear. Instead, she will focus her attention on the downhill, the super-G and the combined.

"It's the Olympics, getting sixth place doesn't do a whole lot of good here", Miller said.

"In 2010, I was a much healthier athlete", Vonn said. "Even though he had more wins, he had a different schedule than her and had many more opportunities and different risk tolerance".

"I know, like, it's a comparison between sports, and I don't think there's a sport in the Winter Olympics where you can even win 23 medals across three or four Olympics, but, yeah, I could never imagine myself even in the same sentence as Michael Phelps", she said. She enjoys sleeping the majority of the day.

When Vonn's trip to South Korea turned into a 24-hour ordeal of that special frustration that is an airline delay, there was a moment or two when she wondered if bringing Lucy along for the ride was a great idea. It's really hard for me not to cry.

"She is usually in the hotel room whenever I'm racing".

But the relatively risk-free course could quickly turn unsafe for skiers desperate to make the most of their shot at an Olympic podium by throwing caution to the wind. She was going to bring him to Pyeongchang to watch her compete, but he died November 1 at the age of 88. I miss him so much.

Amazon's Prime Exclusive Program launched in 2016 with the Motorola Moto G and the BLU R1 HD, both of which had lock screen ads. Starting tomorrow, February 7, 2018, Prime Exclusive Phones will be available to customers without lockscreen offers and ads.

"Because of the schedule and because it's my last Olympics, it's very important to me to attend", she said, "and I'm going to get as much of the Olympic experience in these next two weeks as possible". She said on social media that it will be especially emotional for her due to her grandfather's passing, saying she would "make him proud". My main focus this year was exclusively on the Olympics and I'm very happy with how I feel physically, mentally.

"On any World Cup it's hard to predict the victor... but here there's one downhill every fourth year and then it really gets a lot of focus and if there's a prize you remember it longer". "I really want to put an exclamation point on my career". "After this Olympics, I am going to go home, miss the next few world cups and I will meet everyone in Sweden for the finals".

Yes, there's a little insight into how Vonn thinks. She was an Olympic champion, in the conversation as the best Alpine skier in history, and then her body was broken.

Jansrud's Norwegian teammate Aksel Lund Svindal, a three-time medallist in Vancouver, said the field was wide open.

"It's not a training run that tells you very much", he said, listing the shortened course, the shifting tailwind and a shaved down last jump.

"Hopefully they can find me a guy now..." They've always been friends.

She closed her eyes and paused, then spoke haltingly as she began crying. Linsdey Vonn has been an Olympian since she was a teenager.
