Lindsey Vonn wins bronze in final race
#1
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/winter-sports/47190087

Lindsey Vonn won bronze in her final professional race in the downhill at the Alpine World Championships, as Ilka Stuhec took gold.

American Vonn becomes the first female skier to win a medal at six World Championships.

The 34-year-old clocked one minute 02.23 seconds - 0.49 behind Slovenian Stuhec, who was the defending champion.

"It was so fun, I was literally the most nervous I've ever been in my entire life," Vonn told Eurosport.

Switzerland's Corinne Soutar pushed Vonn into the bronze-medal position in Are, Sweden.



Congrats to Lindsey Vonn on such a successful career. Perhaps this isn't quite the way she would have wanted to go out, and there will always be the question of what more she could have achieved were it not for her injuries - but, even so, she can certainly be proud of what she's won.

Good luck to her with the rest of her life :) .
