Olympics: Goggia aiming to beat Vonn

Lindsey Vonn is having a hard time getting to the Olympics

CNN's Cody Wire asked the Colorado skier how memories of her grandfather resonated with her now that she is in South Korea getting ready for the games. Watch out for her because she may very well win more medals in South Korea.

"Ski racing is an all-encompassing word and I wanted to be able to do everything in ski racing well", she said.

Shiffrin is just 22 but already has 40 World Cup victories already to her name. She says he will be with her in spirit as she competes in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. And yes, part of it is the two-plus years she spent dating Tiger Woods.

She is one of the most decorated alpine skiers, and one of the best all-around athletes in the world.

But the world cup hasn't been her focus this season - the Olympics has.

This Olympics provides such a stage for Vonn, who is skiing as well as she has since the last Olympics - which she missed with a bad knee.

Waldner said organisers would proceed with planning to race on Sunday with the first alternative being to move it to Monday at noon local time, between the two runs of the women's giant slalom at the Yongpyong Alpine Centre. Vonn was airlifted to the hospital, when she found out she tore both her ACL and MCL.

"For me, that was like a defining moment that I needed to take a step back and get a couple days of rest and then get back into training", Shiffrin said. That is the sort of burden of expectations she places on herself.

Mikaela Shiffrin went to the 2014 Olympics as the 18-year-old favorite in the women's slalom.

BC to raise minimum wage to $15.20 an hour by June 2021
Horgan said B.C.is making other changes to help businesses such as eliminating the provincial sales tax on electricity by 2019. Next week's throne speech will talk about other measures, including child care and housing affordability, he said.

In every recent Olympics, Vonn's best event, the women's downhill, has been contested near the first weekend of competition, too close to the opening ceremony to allow for rest and preparation.

Vonn's arrival had been repeatedly delayed at the airport, but she has showed up to win us some gold medals.

She paused before adding: "Yeah, I just want so badly to do well for him and".

"It took me until my third Olympics to figure out how to deal with the pressure". Most of the time ...

His horse-breeding business is starting to mature, and with his Aztec clothing and Bomber skis, the one-time free spirit of the slopes seems to be becoming more comfortable in the boardroom.

Vonn's grandfather, Don Kidlow, passed away in November at the age of 88 and the American is hoping to do him proud on her Olympic swansong.

Vonn is a highly decorated, highly experienced skier, and one of the last of my skiing idols still racing.

"It's not so challenging to make it down and I don't think we're going to see a lot of crashes", he said.
