Meet Mikaela Shiffrin - Team USA Olympic Ski Racer

She then said about an hour later that the airline was trying to locate a new plane, with thousands of fans voting on whether she could expect to fly that date or not.

Eight years ago in Vancouver, Vonn wore a mask.

"It took me until my third Olympics to figure out how to deal with the pressure".

Until Vonn gets her Darcy it's just her and Lucy, the latest edition to her growing coterie of rescue dogs.

She was a downhill wunderkind at the 2002 Games, the victim of a gruesome crash in 2006, a revelation four years later and a sad story in 2014, when she missed the Sochi Games after tearing her right ACL twice in 2013.

Her Olympic history is covered in more crashes than glory. LOL I think that it's by this 24-hour journey. I'm skiing exceptionally well. Vonn was airlifted to the hospital, when she found out she tore both her ACL and MCL. She ranked 36th in super-G in the 2016 World Cup standings and followed that up by moving up to 24th previous year, ranking 22nd so far in the 2018 season.

No woman can match Vonn's 81 World Cup victories. "And I want to win for him".

Goggia was gunning for Vonn headed into the race, and the rematch is set in South Korea.

Canada's Manuel Osborne-Paradis makes a turn in Men's Downhill training at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Jeongseon, South Korea, Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018. Vonn's first event is the Super G. That's not scheduled until February 17th. Everything happens for a reason and I have someone looking out for me.

Goggia also said she had "high hopes" in the giant slalom and the super-G, as well as the combined event. Vonn is known for her love for speed, but she has multiple wins in all five disciplines. "Let's do this Team USA!"

She estimates that she spent the equivalent of about three years on rehabilitation from various injuries; while Vonn reiterated Friday she plans to ski another season to eclipse Stenmark, when she mentioned the word "retirement", it was in the context of how long her knees will hold up.

Outside of her Olympic career, she has been nothing short of spectacular.
