Alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin masters the downhill in her spare time

Alpine skiing: Taking risks could backfire in Pyeongchang - Milller Lindsey Vonn confirms Pyeongchang will be final Olympics, will enter three races

"Yea, I just want so badly to do well for him", she said. Her grandfather Don Kildow passed away at the age of 88 in November. "She enjoys sleeping a majority of the day". Her first scheduled event, the Super G, is not until Saturday, Feb. 17.

Shiffrin knew it was time for a bit of a break when she went off-course with only a handful of gates left in a slalom at Lenzerheide, Switzerland, on January 28.

Vonn, who says this will be her final appearance in the Olympics, will compete in three events at this year's games: downhill, super-giant slalom and combined events.

There already are plenty of expectations from others heading into her first race, the super-G, on February 17. I would like to win.

The outspoken 33-year-old skier is among the most marketable USA athletes in South Korea. Probably not unless you're big into the world of skiing or you watch skiing on the weekends - CBS & ABC usually have odd skiing broadcasts - before something more important comes on.

It's a dog. That's way better than lugging around Tiger Woods in your Vonn-tourage, don't you think? I got her two and a half years ago. She has 20 World Cup crystal globe titles, making that the all-time record in both men's and women's skiing. "I hope I can make him proud", she said. She closed her eyes and paused, then spoke haltingly as she began crying. At two years old, she was already practicing on plastic skis in her driveway.

It's not the first time Lucy has stolen the spotlight in one of Vonn's tweets.

"Just trying to stay true to the dream I had as a little girl", Shiffrin said. Her relentless thirst for speed, inculcated by her late grandfather, has caught up with her in the latter part of her career with serious injuries to her right knee in 2013 and 2014, which kept her out of the Olympics, and her right arm, which she broke in 2016.

"I know, like, it's a comparison between sports, and I don't think there's a sport in the Winter Olympics where you can even win 23 medals across three or four Olympics, but, yeah, I could never imagine myself even in the same sentence as Michael Phelps", she said.

"I've seen it a lot - she's good at the top, she's good in the middle and then she crushes everybody on the bottom". As he raised his family on a farm in rural Milton, Wisconsin, he built a tiny ski hill with a tow rope.
