PYEONGCHANG — Lindsey Vonn’s bid for a second Olympic downhill gold medal came unstuck on Wednesday as the US ski star finished third in the women’s blue riband event won by "crazy" close friend Sofia Goggia of Italy.
Goggia, in bib number five, timed 1min 39.22sec for a first downhill title for the Italian women’s team.
The 25-year-old came in 0.09sec ahead of Norway’s giant slalom silver medallist Ragnhild Mowinckel, with Vonn a further 0.42sec adrift. — AFP
