I am sending them my best.
"I watched clips here and there". The expectations were low for Gleirscher, having never reached a World Cup podium.
In Jeongseon, Ledecka simply couldn't believe she was No. 1 on the videoboard standings moments after crossing the finish line.
But there was no mistake.
Forejtek described Ledecka as humble and was not surprised to hear that she was seen wearing her gold medal while eating KFC at Czech House after the race. "I don't have makeup on". Olympic champion 2010 in the downhill, Vonn shared sixth place with the Italian Federica Brignone.
And Vonn, one of the most successful skiers of all time, said she plans to avoid speaking out again for the time being after she was subjected to abuse on Twitter for her opinions.
Still, Vonn made it clear that her anxiety isn't performance-related whatsoever, especially not relative to the youth of her competitors.
Her inspiration to the Czech team extends to her proud father, who said he may now write a song about her.
Men and women rarely race on the same courses, which are set according to different guidelines, with men's courses requiring a greater change in elevation. Missing from the podium was Felix Loch of Germany, who won gold at the past two Winter Olympics and was largely considered the favorite going into Sunday's event.
Her Olympic career includes one gold and one bronze medal. Loch was poised to claim his third straight gold medal in the competition until a poor final run knocked him into fifth. She appeared slightly stunned and surely disappointed after the race, shaking her head at the bottom of the course.
But she had high hopes for the Super G and was eager to kick off these Olympics with a cleaner race. Norway's Johan Grottumsbraten (1928) and Thorleif Haug (1924) doubled up in cross country and Nordic combined.
"It had to be more tricky than the first one because I needed a better score to beat my teammate".
The 2018 Olympics hold a special significance for Vonn as she looks to perform well in honor of her late grandfather. "I'm so psyched for Ester".
She then started skiing at the age of 4 before switching to freestyle snowboarding and eventually Alpine snowboarding and is now back to skis. The final is Saturday. "You guys are finally paying attention to that".
There are no participation medals at the Olympics, only medals.
The juggling act is likely to get more challenging.
She's been training heavily to come back from her injuries and is ready to compete in Pyeongchang.
"There were plenty of racers who had no chance because of the wind", she said. "But I really didn't expect I would be sitting here". "But my snowboard coach wants me on snowboard".
She knew right away she was in trouble. "It's down a hill, both of them", she said.
"I thought at first, yes". There was no pressure. "And that's because of her heart and because of her ability with a snowboard". No longer a nameless face in the crowd.

Unemployment is at a 17-year low, hiring is strong and growth is very solid (and expected to pick up more this year). Europe's main markets started down as much as 3 percent and shares tumbled in Asia after a wild day for US markets.
