Mikaela Shiffrin races for another gold, Nathan Chen returns

Mikaela Shiffrin races for another gold, Nathan Chen returns

And it was definitely worth the wait.

If Svindal struck gold in his fourth and probably last Winter Games, others are just starting out on the Olympic adventure, notably China's 15-year-old freestyle skier Wu Meng, who was born October 2, and is the youngest competitor in Pyeongchang.

Mikaela Shiffrin stands on stage after winning the gold medal for alpine skiing - ladies giant slalom. Then wicked weather that could turn Yukon Cornelius into a homebody doing jigsaw puzzles by the fire made Shiffrin's plan seem downright stupid, with wind postponing her Olympic debut by 72 hours, pushing back the giant slalom and slalom races into a tightly compacted schedule certain to strain both her legs and mind. "Now we got the ball rolling". Vaultier barely qualified for the final after crashing during the semifinals but recovered to win his second Olympic gold medal.

According to data company Gracenote, the oldest athlete at PyeongChang 2018 is Canada's 51-year-old curler Cheryl Bernard, who is tipped to win a medal, while Germany's Claudia Pechstein will be 45 when she competes in the 5,000-meter speed skating. Snowboarders in the women's slopestyle event over the weekend had to battle high winds and it clearly affected their runs quite a bit, but no event has been as frustrated as the slalom. She took a few days off, then came early to PyeongChang to practice, practice, practice.

With her victory on Thursday, Shiffrin is now the third American skier in history to win two Olympic golds, joining Andrea Mead Lawrence and Ted Ligety. She stood in the middle and smiled, putting her arms around her two fellow medal winners. She just plain looks different. She reportedly told her mother, "I'm not The Next Lindsey Vonn; I'm Mikaela Shiffrin". Her lines are demanding and aggressive.

"We're going to have to make some tough choices, but appropriate choices moving forward to make sure we keep the fatigue in the right spot to perform later in the Games". Sweden's Charlotte Kalla won silver for her second medal of the Pyeongchang Games.

Champions League: Kane and Eriksen spoil Higuain show
Five minutes into my first start for England he made a very tough challenge. "It was a good welcome to worldwide football". Juventus raced to a 1-0 lead and then doubled that via the penalty spot, and Spurs' chances were hanging by a thread.

Shiffrin said, "I know what I have to do". As it sets up now, and again allowing for the weather, Shiffrin could now be skiing back-to-back-to-back - giant slalom, slalom, super-G; Thursday, Friday, Saturday - with no rest day.

But her love for the sport grew when her family moved to New Hampshire and she joined the ski team at the Burke Mountain Academy.

"I think she's the best mentally and she's the one who does what she does in training on the course", said Italy's Federica Brignone, who won the bronze.

"To come here and do that today - was incredible", Shiffrin said. "We will show you the best of us at Beijing Games". I'm not super-far off.

"I was loose", said Shiffrin, who described the course in the morning has having a false flat.
