Lindsey Vonn's Comeback Gets Poetic In New Olympic Under Armour Ad

Lindsey Vonn has had her run, but it's time for Mikaela Shiffrin now.

Vonn says without her grandfather's influence she may never have taken up the sport.

Vonn teared up as she continued: "He's been such a big part of my life".

"She's so impressive about staying focused in the process", said Mike Day, Shiffrin's coach with the USA team.

Dow plunges more than 1000 points, falls into correction territory
The S&P 500 remains up 26 percent since his election, and on Tuesday clawed back into positive territory for 2018, up 0.8 percent. Major indexes in Asia and Europe also fell following Monday's 1,175-point drop in the Dow Jones industrial average.

Pyeongchang's relatively benign downhill and super-G courses will favour skiers with natural ability and punish those trying to make up time with risky maneuvers, former Olympic champion Bode Miller told Reuters this week.

Vonn, who will compete in the downhill, Super G and combined events here next week, broke down in tears when asked about the death of her grandfather and skiing mentor, Don Kildow, who died previous year.

She arrived in South Korea about 1½ weeks ahead of her opening race and has trained about a half-dozen times. "And I'm gonna win for him".

There is something even more special about the way sunlight glints off snow during the Olympic Games to me. My grandfather taught my father how to ski and I think about him all the time, especially when I'm racing.

Idris Elba Is Engaged, and Women Everywhere Are Expressing Heartbreak
His latest project, Yardie , is set in Jamaica and is an adaptation of Victor Headley's 1992 novel by the same name. Marriage is an institution of sorts and I've done it. "It's not my life's calling", he said at the time.

"I've always been in awe of the Olympics, especially 2002", she said. I always have her with me. I will race for you in Korea and I will try as hard as I can to win for you. She is experienced, a star within the insular world of Alpine skiing, but an established, familiar face who can sell watches and milk and athletic wear to a wider audience.

She is one of the most decorated alpine skiers, and one of the best all-around athletes in the world.

Vonn also is still in the hunt to break Stenmark's record and thinks she can exceed it next season. "I know he's looking out for me", she said, "and that actually gives me a lot of peace of mind". The gold she returned in Vancouver eight years ago was the first by an American woman in the downhill. The pair is competing in the first-ever mixed doubles Olympic curling event after winning the 2017 National Championship.

"I've seen it a lot - she's good at the top, she's good in the middle and then she crushes everybody on the bottom". "I've spent many a Christmas in hotel rooms by myself", she says. As he raised his family on a farm in rural Milton, Wisconsin, he built a tiny ski hill with a tow rope.

No word from BC as feds overhaul pipeline rules
In Victoria, Horgan said while he and Notley may both be New Democrats, that is a secondary consideration. She has also threatened that after wine, Alberta may look to stop BC craft beer from heading east.
