Lindsey Vonn ‘disappointed’ after bobble in super-G
Lindsey Vonn returned to the slopes at the Olympics for the first time since 2010, and her first event did not go as hoped.
Vonn competed in the super-G in South Korea on Saturday and was first to go down the course. She was doing great until the end when she had a bobble and skidded off the course. The mistake was enough to keep her out of medal contention.
After the race, Vonn acknowledged she was “disappointed” but maintained a positive attitude.
“I gave it everything I had. I have no regrets. I made a mistake on the bottom. But that’s what happens in super-G,” Vonn told NBC’s Heather Cox. “I’m disappointed but I’m not upset because all you can do is give it your best, and that’s what I did.”
Vonn was asked how much being first out of the gate hurt her. She did not make any excuses but acknowledged that put her in somewhat of a difficult position.
“I did the best I could with the information I had,” Vonn said.
Despite not medaling in the event, Vonn said she was proud of the way she competed. She’ll have another chance at a medal in the women’s downhill.
