Vonn opens up, will ski for more than herself in Pyeongchang

A tearful Lindsey Vonn vowed Friday (Feb 9) to "lay it all out" at her fourth Olympics to honour her late grandfather, the inspiration behind her stellar ski career.

"Either your skis are good or they're not, either your aerodynamics are good or not - it's really not something that's easy to change on a given day", said Miller, whose six medals makes him the most decorated American Olympic skier of all time. She won a gold in the downhill and a bronze in the super-G at Vancouver in 2010. In December, her paternal grandfather, Don Kildow, died.

She struggled, and it's clear that these emotions, so close to the surface, will provide the backdrop for her performances, which don't get under way until the Super-G on February 17.

"You're insane. OK. He has, what, 23 medals?" she said on Saturday. He's been such a big part of my life, and I really hoped that he would be alive to see me.

Shiffrin said she confronts anxiety - "a lot more mental stress these last two years than I ever had" - by working with a sports psychologist. "But I know he's watching, and I know that he's going to help me, and I'm going to win for him". "I miss him so much".

"You taught me to be tough, to be kind, and above all, to ski fast", Vonn said in an Instagram post shortly after his death, one of many social media postings hailing the influence of her grandfather, who was ironically stationed not far from the Jeongseon Alpine Centre when he served with the USA army during the Korean War.

"Being in a hotel room is often at times extremely hard". Instead, it was about failing to even finish three of her last four races.

Snap Inc.'s Share Price Soars After Revenue Beats Expectations
Revenue per user rose 46 percent from a year earlier to $1.53, while cost of revenue per user rose 5 percent to $1.02. It's a significant boost in users since the third quarter of 2017, when Snapchat added just 4.5 million DAUs.

She said the the pressure is even greater now because this is her last Games and "because I want to end on a high note". "So I figured I'd need her for the most important event".

"She's so impressive about staying focused in the process", said Mike Day, Shiffrin's coach with the US team.

Innerhofer, who has form on the mountain having finished second in the super-G in the test World Cup event two years ago, has struggled to bother the podium on a regular basis since his Sochi showing but insisted he still had something to offer.

"I've always been in awe of the Olympics, especially 2002", she said. "I know what I'm capable of, and I think I know how to handle myself better than I did".

Her Olympic history is covered in more crashes than glory. Now, one more time, she encounters a different set of circumstances. As he raised his family on a farm in rural Milton, Wisconsin, he built a tiny ski hill with a tow rope.

"I have someone looking out for me", she said.

"I'm of Norwegian descent and so I feel like I'm pseudo team member of the Norwegian team". Linsdey Vonn has been an Olympian since she was a teenager.
