American Lindsey Vonn won the bronze in the Olympic downhill race in South Korea on Tuesday.

Sofia Goggia of Italy won the gold medal and Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway was second.

Goggia finished in 1:39:22. Vonn, who at 33 became the oldest woman skier to win an Olympic medal, was .47 behind.

Americans Alice McKennis was fifth and Breezy Johnson placed seventh.

Mikaela Shiffrin overcame both delays and some of the best skiers in the world to claim her first gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics, winning the giant slalom. The weather finally cooperated, with sunny, clear skies over the Yongpyong Alpine Center in Pyeongchang.

Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel won silver, 0.39 behind Shiffrin's combined time of 2:20.02.
