Her flight from Munich to Seoul was delayed by about six hours due to a paperwork issue.

She said she and the other passengers eventually made it to South Korea.

On this chilly November morning, she isn't just a four-time overall World Cup champion or a head-turning magazine cover star. She is the author of "Not the Triumph but the Struggle: The 1968 Olympics and the Making of the Black Athlete" and "One Goal: A Coach, a Team, and the Game That Brought a Divided Town Together".

Vonn says she has slowly learned how to handle the pressure and high expectations that arrive with every Olympics. Vonn's Airbus A340, she told ESPN, was one of 15 around the world that were grounded for the same problem.

Kjetil Jansrud, who won super-G gold and downhill bronze in Sochi as well as giant slalom in Vancouver in 2010, finished just behind Innerhofer but didn't put much stock in the rankings. At least Vonn thought the goofing on Lucy's facial expression was hilarious.

If a bit of hardware is not realistically in the offing, then why bother getting into the starting hut?

She wiped away excess tears and composed herself.

Vonn's first event in South Korea will be the super-G, which is scheduled for February 17.

Shiffrin's success in the master turning event, slalom, has gotten her more than 40 World Cup victories, three World Championships and gold at the 2014 Olympics.

The 33-year-old American said she wouldn't be able to contend for a medal in the GS, "so there's really no point".

"I worked super hard to get to the Olympics, but I can't afford to think about it when I'm standing up there, ready to jump". "I hope I can make him proud", she said.

"When I warm up in the morning, I need to warm up my knee first, for 15 minutes". Most of the time ...

She closed her eyes and paused, then spoke haltingly as she began crying. "Maybe that's why I love skiing so much". He was such a big part of my life, I hoped he'd be alive to see me. I would like to win. And her sister Karin rags on a magazine story calling fellow American Mikaela Shiffrin the greatest skier of all time. My main focus this year was exclusively on the Olympics and I'm very happy with how I feel physically, mentally. Now, every time i ski down the mountain I know you'll be there with me. I'm not going to be nervous.
