Winter Olympics Tuesday highlights: Czechs beat USA hockey in shootout, Lindsey Vonn wins bronze
Vonn finishes third in her final Olympic downhill and the U.S. men's hockey team is battling in the quarters
So, no gold medal for Lindsey Vonn in the downhill. And no medal for the United States men's hockey team at these Winter Olympics. Vonn, a once-in-a-generation ski talent, added to her Olympic medal collection on Wednesday morning in South Korea after settling for the bronze, while the American men lost a heartbreaker to the Czechs, 3-2, in a shootout.
For the second consecutive Winter Olympics, the United States' men's hockey team has failed to medal.
Vonn, 33, was aiming to become the oldest woman to ever win a gold in the downhill but was beat by her good friend, Italy's Sofia Goggia. Goggia crossed in 1 minutes, 39.22 seconds and in doing so became the first Italian woman to ever win gold in the event.
