Lindsey Vonn's mom: 'She's the strongest I've seen her'

Lindsey Vonn's opener super-G delayed because of wind

Friday will mark Lindsey Vonn's first race at the PyeongChang Olympics and it is a definite medal opportunity for her.

Also between the Turin and Vancouver games, Vonn actually became "Lindsey Vonn", marrying fellow skier and 2002 Olympic teammate Thomas Vonn in 2007, in Deer Valley, Utah.

"Everybody was in line, it took maybe an hour to get an autograph, and she was just so impressed", Lund recalled.

"Well...after 8 years of waiting I finally get a chance to compete in the Olympics again", Vonn wrote.

All events will be shown on NBC.

Unfortunately, things haven't quite gone as smoothly in the Winter Olympics.

Teen suspect in Marshall County school shooting indicted by Grand Jury
A grand jury returned an indictment on Tuesday, charging Parker with two counts of murder and 14 counts of 1st degree assault. There were 14 other students shot and seven others injured while trying to leave the school.

Though she qualified for all five Alpine skiing events in South Korea, she'll only be competing in three - the super-G, downhill, and combined - in what is likely her final Winter Games.

She is the winningest female in World Cup history with 81 career wins, but her mom says it's the men's record of 86 by Ingemar Stenmark that Vonn is after next. Despite competing in six events over this stretch, she failed to earn a spot on the medal stand. She has a very good record at world championships.

"I'm mentally stronger, I believe in myself a lot more and I know what my body is capable of". On Saturday morning in South Korea - Friday night in the U.S. - Vonn will be the first woman to ski the super-G.

"In 2010, I was a much healthier athlete", Vonn said, per Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post. Italy's Sofia Goggia clocked the fastest time, followed by Vonn and Slovenia's Ilka Stuhec.

Still, there will be legitimate competition in each race from Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein, Italy's Sofia Goggia and United States of America teammate Mikaela Shiffrin among others.
