The United States has a fixation at the Olympics on winning gold.
Trolled on social media, Lindsey Vonn has a message for the people targeting her online - they haven't "won".
Vonn went too wide on one of the last turns late in the course after skiing a near-perfect run up to that point.
"I was an absolute no before but I was thinking about it", Vonn said on Monday.
Goggia and Vonn are close friends, sharing a mutual respect and openly describing themselves as "100 percent crazy" in their pursuit of downhill speed. She did win gold in the giant slalom, but now has just one more shot to win her second gold medal of the games. Mowinckel said, "It's good to be the underdog!" I gave it everything I had. "But, I mean, honestly, this is fantastic, and I'm so proud".
The gold medalist in downhill from the 2010 Games, Vonn will now have to focus on that race on Wednesday (Tuesday night in the U.S.).
She also discussed returning from multiple injuries. "I didn't ski stiff".
American Alice McKennis finished fifth while Breezy Johnson was seventh. She and Vonn are assured of being picked for the four-woman USA downhill team, and Alice McKennis earned a spot by having the best time of other contenders Monday, arriving ninth overall.
