Why Lindsey Vonn Won Gold

Lindsey Vonn, forgetting about the pain on her her shin, aggressively took on the woman's downhill skiing. During a slalom run in Austria, she fell and bruised and swelled her ankle. She beat fellow American Julia Mancuso to be the first American woman to win gold win gold in the event. A 9,000 foot course known as fronzas run is the run that the woman's downhill competition took place it was also the same run that the men's downhill competition took place.

Below is my Wordle about this story:
