Lindsey Vonn bobbles, misses medal in women's super-G

In addition to an impressive history of wins, Vonn has a track record of injuries that have prevented her from competing in one competition or another over the last 10 years of her career.

"This must be some mistake".

Going first during her Super-G race prevented her from seeing how other skiers reacted to problem areas on the course.

"I am so surprised abou all of it".

Ledecka now faces a quandary over whether to stick to her original plan and concentrate on the snowboarding, or think about going in the women's downhill Alpine ski race on Wednesday. Her mother Zuzana was a successful figure skater at national level, while her grandfather, Jan Kaplac, was a member of the great Czechoslovakian ice hockey team that won world championship gold in 1972 and Olympic bronze at Innsbruck 1964 and silver at Grenoble 1968.

"Yeah, we can", Veith said after earning an Olympic silver medal in Saturday's super-G.

The 33-year-old competed in her first Olympic race in eight years and came out with an aggressive start.

Brighton v Coventry preview: Chris Hughton wary of FA Cup upset
It certainly looks to be a tough match for Coventry on paper, however the magic of the FA Cup means that upsets can and do happen. The Sky Blues now sit 9th in League Two, and are in the fifth round of the FA Cup for the first time since 2009.

Which makes you wonder: Maybe Shiffrin shouldn't have taken a rest day and skipped the super-G after all. With the victory, Bjørgen became the most decorated Winter Olympian ever. It took only six racers before Vonn was bumped out of the running for a possible medal.

Ledecka's run shocked even her.

But she failed to live her dream when she set the time at 1:21.49, soon bested by several other competitors.

"I gave it everything I had".

"I would rather go riding my snowboard now", Ledecka said, laughing.

"I came in there with pretty decent speed". I work hard and try to be the best person I can be. "I got this. I got this.' And I knew I had to focus all the way to the finish because of that turn".

"When I was injured there were days I was anxious I would not be able to skate any more". I was like 'what happened, grandpa?

It was by far one of the best reactions we've seen at PyeongChang, yet.

"I'm actually happy to be sixth and not fourth. And that cost me a medal".

Three of the first four races in the Alpine program were postponed this week after winds of up to 72kph wreaked havoc with the schedule.

"It just depends on my knee". Vonn is considered one of the greatest female ski racers in history. "I didn't tell Laura until just after as I didn't want to jinx it". Unfortunately, my body is not the Terminator.

"There was news about people who were committing scalping and I am not sure how turned out to be, but scalping is not allowed in Korea", Sung said.

"Well, these are the Olympics, and anything can happen", Hicks wisecracked about the turn of events.

In one of the biggest upsets of these Olympics, Czech skier Ester Ledecka, who's competing in Pyeongchang both on a snowboard and on skis, stunned the super-G field to claim gold.
