Vonn wins bronze medal in fi­nal race of her ca­reer

ARE, Swe­den – One last come­back com­plete. One last medal.

Five days af­ter crash­ing in su­per-G, Lind­sey Vonn bounced back to win the bronze medal in the world cham­pi­onship down­hill Sun­day in the fi­nal race of her ca­reer.

“I laid it all on the line. That’s all I wanted to do to­day,” Vonn said. “I have to ad­mit I was a lit­tle bit ner­vous, prob­a­bly the most ner­vous I’ve ever been in my life. I wanted to fin­ish strong so badly.”

It’s a medal that brings Vonn full cir­cle: the Amer­i­can’s two sil­vers at the 2007 worlds on the same course in Are were the first two ma­jor cham­pi­onship medals of her ca­reer.

When Vonn crossed the fin­ish line she had a big smile on her face, waved and bowed to the crowd.
