Vonn Takes Bronze in Super-G

American Lindsey Vonn won the bronze medal in the super-G Olympic ski event Saturday, placing behind Austria’s Andrea Fischbacher and Slovenia’s Tina Maze. Vonn had been expected to bring home many medals for the U.S., but suffered a deep bruise on her shin just before the Games began. Vonn was able to clinch the gold in the downhill despite the injury, but wiped out in the super-combined. In Saturday’s event, Vonn says she lost speed in the second half of the race. "Once I got past those difficult sections, I kind of backed off the gas pedal," she said. "I felt like I just didn't ski as aggressively as I could have, and I think that's where I lost the race." Vonn has two events left to compete: the slalom and the giant slalom.
