You even take your indecision to Olympic level.

Under clear blue skies, Czech Ledecka, running 26th, completed a flawless run to deliver one of the biggest upsets in Winter Olympics, stunning fans, her rivals, and even broadcasters who had already crowned Veith the victor. "I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the Opening Ceremony".

"I thought it was either going to be really great or really bad", Vonn said. In snowboarding, though, she placed sixth in the parallel slalom and seventh in GS. Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein, who finished 0.11sec off the pace, won the bronze. The World Champion snowboarder finished with a winning time of 1 min 21.12 sec and beat Anna Veith from Austra by one-hundredth of a second.

"I gave it everything I had", Vonn said. She juggling a complicated competition schedule this season, shuffling between snowboard and ski events, to become the first athlete to compete in both sports at an Olympics.

Vonn, who was the first competitor on the course, went way wide on one of the last turns late in the course after skiing a near-perfect run up to that point.

McDonald's to Give Cheeseburger Happy Meals the Boot
The cheeseburger will no longer be on Happy Meal menus , and six-piece chicken nuggets will no longer be served with small fries. Even though cheeseburgers and chocolate milk are being banished from the menu, kids can still order the items by request.

The win by Ledecka, who ran 26th, was so unexpected that United States broadcaster NBC had already announced Austria's Anna Veith as the victor.

She knew right away she was in trouble. She was an elite snowboarder before that and won world championships in back-to-back years, the parallel slalom in 2015 and the parallel giant slalom in 2017. And she reconciled with her father, Alan Kildow, a couple of years after the Vancouver Games.

"After 8 years of waiting I finally get a chance to compete in the Olympics again", she wrote. "I ski better when there is no wind and I struggle with the wind", Hoefflin said. "I would rather the favourites start later, it's better for us and for television".

"I just spent last 20 min's reading thru tweets directed" at Vonn, Foudy tweeted.

'If they don't like me their loss I guess'.

A spokesman for the International Olympic Committee says local organizers initially wanted IOC member Adam Pengilly kept in South Korea rather than sent home during an investigation of his altercation with a security guard.

In November 2013, as she was recovering from her first significant knee injury, she re-injured the same knee and had to miss the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

Should she win another gold medal, it would elevate the scale of her feat to another level entirely.

Boutin had won the bronze medal after South Korean medal hope Choi Min-Jeong was disqualified for interfering. And her best super-G race before Saturday? "I should have already had, like, three runs on snowboard now". She has done that her entire career.

"I just want so badly to do well for him", Vonn told Bleacher Report. Hours before the Super G event on Saturday, Vonn posted an emotional tribute to her grandfather on Instagram.

Winter Olympics: Yuzuru Hanyu wins men's figure skating gold again
Thousands of miniature Japanese flags featuring the rising sun waved in the stands to greet Hanyu when he got onto the ice. It was not a ideal routine, however, as Hanyu stumbled and almost fell on one jump, and barely held his feet on another.
