Pyeongchang Olympics American Lindsey Vonn competes in the women’s downhill earlier today at the Winter Olympics in Jeongseon, South Korea. Vonn took the bronze medal in the event. Italy’s Soÿa Goggia won the gold and Norway’s Ragnhild Mowinckel took silver.

Amanda Kessel (28) and the United States women’s hockey team take on Canada today with a gold medal at stake.

Lindsey Vonn cast a quick glance toward the sky after finishing what was likely her final Olympic downhill run, shrugged her shoulders at seeing her time and shook a friendly index finger at her good friend. No one could catch Sofia Goggia of Italy. Goggia won the women’s downhill Wednesday at Jeongseon Alpine Center as Vonn earned bronze. The American was looking at a higher finish, before Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway turned in a surprise silver-medal performance as the 19th racer on the course. Ester Ledecka of Czech Republic made a late charge last week from back in the pack to take the super-G title. She skipped the downhill to step back into the snowboarding realm and will go through qualifying Thursday in the parallel giant slalom. Goggia finished in a time of 1 minute, 39.22 seconds to hold off Mowinckel by 0.09 seconds. Vonn was 0.47 seconds behind Goggia. At 33, Vonn became the oldest female medalist in Alpine skiing at the Winter Games. The record was held by Austria’s Michaela Dorfmeister, who was just shy of her 33rd birthday when she won the downhill and the super-G at the 2006 Turin Olympics.
