Vonn, Queen of Ski, returns to Olympic Slopes

Mikaela Shiffrin will start favourite in the slalom in PyeongChang

Sofia Goggia is going into her first Winter Olympics with the aim of stealing the show from American superstar Lindsey Vonn.

Vonn used the time to turn what was to have been a 14-hour journey into a social media adventure as the ski star updated her feeds.

"I definitely am going to ski another season", she said. She skidded helplessly about 40 feet in the snow.

Yes, there's a little insight into how Vonn thinks. She has overcome blown-out knees, a shattered humerus, a broken ankle, a severed tendon in her hand, a failed marriage and a complicated relationship with her father to become arguably the greatest skier of all time.

Vonn said her perspective on the Games hasn't changed that much since her first Games 16 years ago.

Vonn's first race is scheduled for February 17 in the super-G. Vonn's been a part of three Olympic teams (2002, 2006, and 2010). Based on her form this season, she may well come out of them with two gold medals. At 17, she became the youngest USA woman to win an Alpine world championship.

Cubs, Darvish agree to 6-year deal
It looks like the waiting game has helped the Ricketts family save more money, so, yay? The Cubs' rotation now appears to be set. While Darvish's new deal doesn't officially close the door on a return from Jake Arrieta , it certainly makes it less likely.

Her Olympic history is covered in more crashes than glory. The other in 2012. He started at fullback, linebacker and place-kicker four straight years for the Milton Redmen and was First Team on the Wisconsin All-State Grid Squad on both offense and defense as a junior and senior. The records don't stop there. Instead, she will focus her attention on the downhill, the super-G and the combined. Making that 16 Discipline titles.

But, after Vonn dabbed away her tears with a tissue, know who stole the show at a packed press conference?

Only one gold medal and one bronze medal isn't enough for Vonn. Her goal is to finish her career as the best ever-man or woman. At just 17 years old, Biney is known for her explosive speed off the starting line and a bubbly personality that wins over everyone.

One Twitter follower wrote sarcastically: "Loved the way you were unable to hit the high notes while singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl!" In one of them she was doing an ad for Bounty paper towels.

Her parents, Jeff and Eileen Shiffrin, have ski racing backgrounds. It looks like Vonn will win yet another gold, which may have looked impossible just five years ago after the brutal injury.

Even donned the gloves for her flight to South Korea.
