Winter Olympics: Michelle Gisin denies Mikaela Shiffrin gold in Olympic combined

U.S. Alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin leaves PyeongChang with two new medals to add to her collection.

The 33-year-old became the oldest woman to win an Olympic Alpine skiing medal when she claimed the downhill bronze medal in PyeongChang.

"She was very exhausted so she preferred not to start today".

Gisin, lying third fastest after the opening downhill, kept her nerve in the slalom to clock an aggregate of 2min 20.90sec.

Shiffrin won gold in the giant slalom earlier in PyeongChang to go with the slalom gold she won four years ago in Sochi.

Skiers' times will be combined after one downhill run and one slalom run.

Shiffrin's signature event is the slalom.

Shiffrin is vying for her third career Olympic gold medal, which would be the most in American Alpine skiing history.

"To come away from this Olympics with two medals is insane - especially after the schedule changes on both ends of the event", said Shiffrin, who opted to sit out the downhill to focus on the combined after the event was rescheduled to Thursday. Relive three of her top Olympic moments.
