Olympics-Alpine skiing-Ledecka won gold on Shiffrin…

However, she's not even close to being done with the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. So, when Veith, the defending champion, tucked neatly into the lead ahead of her two main rivals, the American great Lindsey Vonn and Tina Weirather of tiny Liechtenstein, NBC, like everyone else, decided that the outcome was settled.

Austrian Marcel Hirscher claimed his second Olympic gold of the Pyeongchang Games on Sunday, showing all his class to comprehensively win the men's giant slalom.

She shook her head side to side, convinced that what she saw was a mistake or a timing glitch.

There was a flawless storm of obstacles that Ledecka had to overcome to achieve what appeared to be an impossible task. "That they're going to switch the time for some others", the 22-year-old told reporters immediately after her victory.

"I really don't know what happened", she added, recalling the moment when she crossed the line at the end of her stunning super-G run and looked up to the scoreboard. All the other girls didn't risk a lot.

Christopher Nolan Won't Be Director Of Next 'James Bond' Film
The state of Bond 25 is an interesting one, and it was something of an uphill struggle to even get Craig to sign on. Well, that's because Nolan has previously gushed about the franchise and his desire to take it on.


"I feel like in the Olympics, a lot of weird things happen and it's not that they [the winners] don't deserve it, it's just different".

No less shocked was Veith, whose fairy-tale ending to a comeback from a major knee injury that required surgery previous year was upended in the final reel.

Congratulations to Ester! She's not done yet either, and will become the first athlete to compete in both snowboarding and skiing events at the same Winter Olympics.

With two-thirds of the 45-woman field still to race, Vonn ― the first skier out ― had slipped to joint-fifth position.

"My ski coach is going to be a little pushy after today!" she acknowledged.

Home Ministry Seeks Report From LG On Assault On Delhi Chief Secretary
Singh told reporters that the Chief Secretary was assaulted by AAP legislators at Kejriwal's residence. AAP said it is ready for an independent inquiry into what had happened at the CM's residence.


"As I said at the time he was suspended, the league made the right call, 100 percent", he said. "I'm disappointed, but I'm not upset".

"It's all that matters right now", Vonn said late previous year.

She has steadily been in the high 30s or low 40s in the World Cup Super-G standings. "This was the Olympics".

It's hard to overstate just how much of an upset this was. "But unfortunately, I'm only good at ski racing - and she still beat me".

Most recently, sportscaster Dan Hicks doubled down on a gaffe Saturday night while covering the women's super-G skiing event, and ski analyst Bode Miller and hockey analyst Mike Milbury faced backlash for some on-air comments.

Ledecka will compete in the Ladies' Parallel Giant Slalom Snowboarding event next Saturday. "It would be very nice [to win both] and I will, for sure, do my best for it".
