Lindsey Vonn confirms Pyeongchang will be final Olympics, will enter three races

Lindsey Vonn will enter three races at what she says will be her final Olympics.

The U.S. skiing star, who missed the 2014 Sochi Games after surgery on her right knee, says she will compete in the downhill, the super-G and the combined.

But she decided to sit out the giant slalom, saying that her knee "is just not really in a place to do that."

The 33-year-old American said she wouldn't be able to contend for a medal in the GS, "so there's really no point."

This is Vonn's fourth Olympics. She won a gold in the downhill and a bronze in the super-G at Vancouver in 2010. Her first race in South Korea is the super-G, scheduled for Feb. 17.
