"So it was, "Come on, let's do the best run you can, skier".
The Czech Republic's Ester Ledecka is obviously an insane athlete.
Ledecky, whose rock opera based on Shakespeare's Hamlet has been performed in front of more than a million people worldwide, is even considering penning a song about his daughter's Olympic adventure.
But after missing the 2014 Games with an injury, the 33-year-old Vonn said she was thrilled to be back.
But the officials simply summoned the 43rd-ranked World Cup super-G skier to the podium to put an Olympic gold medal around her neck. "I thought it must be some mistake... they're going to switch the time for some others".
Shiffrin, ski lendee, took to Twitter to congratulate her fellow skier.
Ledecka denied defending champion Anna Veith what seemed a certain successive gold by just one hundredth of a second, with the Austrian having already started to give celebratory interviews.
When the Norwegian took to the slope for the second run, he raced down in the fastest time in an impressive display of aggressive skiing, 0.04sec faster than Hirscher's leg.
From all of snowboarding, we would just like to say thanks Ester, and good luck in your next race!
The 28-year-old said Ledecka's win was "amazing" and credited her own medal-winning performance to a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck. "She loves it and she's a great girl, a great person".
"The way she learns is unlike anyone", Reiter said. And this year, he added, she has learned how to better manage her energy. She kept her goggles on during her press conference and said, "I was not prepared being at this ceremony, and I don't have no makeup". "I was probably the only snowboarder on site". I'm proud of the way I skied and how I attacked the course. "I just about can't believe it!" I was waiting and watching until they would change the time. In the process, the Czech prodigy ended Austria's streak of four straight gold medals in the women's Super-G at the Olympics.
Ledecka, who trains for each discipline in three-week blocks, revealed that she had had three snowboards prepped for training runs just 30 minutes after the super-G was due to end. While the theory is the same, the strategy and technique are polar opposites. It's awesome and she deserves it because she's so honest and so devoted to sport.
The two-sport athlete from the Czech Republic will also compete in Alpine snowboarding in PyeongChang. Ester also commented on how it felt to be competing as both a snowboarder and skier in the games. "She will focus entirely on the task without giving through to the result, the gold medal".
"She didn't want to give either up because she loved it so much". It's historically very challenging to race on World Cup with a family or after being married.
