Shiffrin drops downhill to focus on combined

  • BC-OLY--SKI-Shiffrin's New Focus

Lindsey's grandfather, who's a proud Tucson resident, will no-doubtedly be watching with lots of anticipation from here in the Old Pueblo.

Double gold victor Marcel Hirscher of Austria missed the 2011 world championships with a broken foot, although he otherwise had been remarkably injury free on the way to collecting a record six consecutive overall World Cup titles.

Lindsey Vonn says she's out to win gold for her late grandfather, Don Kildow.

Serious injuries are one of the hazards of elite ski racing, which this season has even seen the deaths of two male racers, France's two-time Olympian David Poisson and German teenager Max Burkhart.

Ryan Donato, son of 1992 U.S. Olympic hockey player Ted Donato, has been on fire this Olympics scoring Team USA's first and last goal in the last game. So is the bronze medalist last time, Switzerland's Lara Gut. That made it four straight Olympic gold medals in that discipline for Austria, he said. The host nation boasts the deepest women's team, which includes Choi Min-Jeong and Shim Suk-Hee.

She also owns four downhill world championships medals, including a gold in 2009. She just raced her damn heart out & Trump supporters gloat/cheer/celebrate her inability to medal.

Many of the Alpine medalists at the Pyeongchang Olympics have dealt a couple of times with the rigorous process of recovering from long-term injuries. It wasn't. NBC had to break in later with the news that Ledecka had beaten Veith, and showed her winning run.

The rest of the medal contenders all skate about two hours later. Shim won bronze in this event in 2014.

The three American teams are right behind them.

Americans are not the only skiiers leaving Pyeongchang early to skip the event. PyeongChang will be a home-away-from-home Olympics for Thomas Hong. The favorite entering PyeongChang is China's Wu Dajing. The reigning national champion wound up with 64.01 points. It is possible that Knegt could claim his nation's first short track gold medal in PyeongChang.

Mikaela Shiffrin didn't race downhill because of the altered Olympic program.

All eyes will be on Yevgenia Medvedeva and Alina Zagitova, both on the Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation team, who are locked in a particularly tight battle and both aiming for the gold medal.

The current World Cup leader, Italy's Sofia Goggia, will look to keep the Americans off the top step of the podium. She also edged Vonn in March to win the only World Cup downhill contested on the hill.
