Winter Olympics: Sofia Goggia wins Italy's third gold medal

Ice Hockey- Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics- Women’s Classification Match- Sweden v Korea- Kwandong Hockey Centre Gangneung South Kor

The USA team who won bronze pose on the podium during the medal ceremony for the figure skating team event at the Pyeongchang Medals Plaza during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang on February 12, 2018.

Goggia finished in a time of 1 minute, 39.22 seconds to hold off Norwegian Ragnhild Mowinckel by 0.09 seconds. For a stretch of eight years - 2008-16 - she won eight World Cup downhill titles, only missing in 2014 because of the knee injury that kept her from competing at the Sochi Olympics. She displaced Vonn in silver medal position, but Goggia held on to become the first Italian victor of the event.

"I feel like it's 99.99 percent sure that I won't (compete in the Olympics again)".

Vonn acknowledges the crowd on as she steps up to the podium. "It's still hard to understand it when I'm stnading here".

Mowinckel's thrilling run in bib 19 knocked Tina Weirather out of the medals and deprived the Liechtensteiner of a second bronze to add to the one she won behind Ledecka in the super-G. She has has three Olympic medals - a gold in the downhill in 2010, a bronze in the Super-G in 2010 and now the bronze in the 2018 downhill.

Olympic Russian Curler Found Guilty Of Doping - Agrees To Return Medal
So far, the IOC (and other global sport bodies like FIFA) has proven that they won't actually do anything about it. In light of that, my positive test for meldonium was a huge shock for me and for Nastya.

"The U.S. wants to be No. 1 in everything, and I think we've all been raised as awesome competitors so at the end of the day we want a victory", Knight said. Japan never got out of last throughout the race and placed sixth overall. "I couldn't manage a strong start even though I knew it was important", said Sakazume.

Described as the "crazy horse" of the Italian team by manager Massimo Rinaldi, and "crazy, in a good way" by German rival Viktoria Rebensburg, Goggia found her own unique way to describe what athletes usually call being "in the zone".

And with it went any chance the US had of redeeming itself in what is shaping up as a frustrating Olympics for an American team that had hopes of ending up near the top of the medal table. Diggins passed the Swedes and the Norwegians on the final lap to win the first Olympic gold medal for the United States in the sport. I tried so hard, worked my butt off and I'm so proud to have competed with such incredible girls, my team-mates.

The day before the downhill race, she said she had no plans to modify her use of social media. "I wish I could keep going, I'm having so much fun and I love what I do, but my body just can't take another four years". Vonn will compete but she has very little slalom training in recent years. However, she will not take part in the team event on Saturday and neither will Mikaela Shiffrin, Team USA's other major medal hope, who skipped the downhill to focus on the combined.
