Broken bones? Torn knees? Whatever. U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn is fearless.
A confident Lindsey Vonn enters the Pyeongchang Olympics as the most decorated woman skier in history. Still, there's something more at play for her, and it definitely won't come easy.
Lindsey Vonn will start 7th in Wednesday's downhill, a more advantageous position than she had in Sunday's Super G when she started first.

Vonn, the 2010 Olympic downhill champion, had the 1st-, 3rd- and 4th-fastest times in downhill training.
Lindsey Vonn's extensive trophy collection also includes cows.
