Ski girls Shiffrin, Vonn look to rule the slopes

Mikaela Shiffrin is rested and ready to bounce back from the uncharacteristic slump that marked her lead up to the Pyeongchang Olympics, where she is a favorite to win multiple medals in alpine skiing. She also could contend in the other speed event, the super-G, and the combined, which adds the time from one downhill run and one slalom. The death of her grandfather, Don Kildow, has affected her, and she spoke about it during a press conference.

It was Kildow who first taught her to ski, and she had planned to bring him to South Korea for these Olympics.

"On any World Cup it's hard to predict the victor... but here there's one downhill every fourth year and then it really gets a lot of focus and if there's a prize you remember it longer". "I put more pressure on myself than anyone put on me". Everyone in my family wants me to win for him.

Trump will not declassify Dem memo

Skier Mikaela Shiffrin makes her PyeongChang debut in the women's giant slalom event. I really had hoped that he would be alive to see me, but I know he's watching and I know he's going to help me. Like most Olympians, years of consistent of hard work went into her historic win.

Lindsey Vonn was left questioning whether she would even make it to the Winter Olympics after confusion over documentation left her flight grounded on Wednesday.

"I'm of Norwegian descent and so I feel like I'm pseudo team member of the Norwegian team". I always have her with me. "So I figured I'd need her for the most important event". The other one was emotional, showing her when she was a little girl first learning to ski, her accomplishments, and her injury in 2013. "We have a turn going into a jump which is actually pretty rare, some nice terrain pieces and generally all the jumps are very big, so I think it's a great course".

Less than three days later, she was in NY for even more television appearances. In all the World Cup races she's been in, she's finished in first 81 times, second 35 times, and third 19 times. I spent a lot of time in the hot tub, because it increases circulation to the nerve and I was trying to get my fingers to activate.

"I don't have my Olympic medal from Sochi on display", she said. No matter how much I try to be careful and safe and not take too many risks all the time, it's still unsafe. I'm 99 percent sure this year is going to be my last Olympics. What do you think, @lindseyvonn?
