Lindsey Vonn was looking for one more Gold medal in women’s downhill last night, but had to settle for Bronze. She still managed to break a record though. At 33, she’s now the oldest female Alpine skier to EVER medal at the Olympics.
She still has a slim chance at one more medal in the women’s combined tomorrow night. Earlier this week, she said she was “99.9%” sure this is her last Olympics.
Tomorrow I will push out of the starting gate in what will most likely be my last Olympic Downhill race. I’m trying to enjoy the moment as much as I can and I am thankful to share this race with such amazing teammates. I know everyone expects a lot from me, and I expect even more of myself….however there’s only one thing I can guarantee; I will give everything I have tomorrow. Count on it.
Ladies figure skating kicked off with the women’s short program. The top American is Mirai Nagasu, who’s in 9th going into tomorrow’s free skate.
She’s the one who landed a triple axel in the team event last week, and became the first woman to ever do it in the Olympics. She tried it again last night but FELL. So unfortunately, she probably can’t win a medal at this point.
f you’re a fan of Leslie Jones AND Adam Rippon, you’ll probably enjoy them working TOGETHER
“Are they getting in trouble for how sexy they are?”@lesdoggg and @adaripp commentating on @tessavirtue and @scottmoir‘s short dance is everything we could have ever wanted. AND MORE. #WinterOlympics https://t.co/fmMl0C4Amf pic.twitter.com/ykkNvv7L5p
