Lindsey Vonn teared up during an emotional interview after her run in the downhill at the 2018 Winter Olympics on Wednesday.
Vonn entered the race knowing that it was likely to be her final downhill ever at the Olympics. She knew immediately after her run that she was not going to win gold, and she was hoping her time would be good enough to get her the silver medal. She ended up with the bronze.
At 33, Lindsey is the oldest alpine skier to win a medal at the Winter Olympics
