If her accomplishment wasn't good enough, Ledecka defeated Germany's Selina Joerg in the final by 0.46 seconds using borrowed skis. Asked which of her medals gave her the greatest satisfaction the 22-year-old Ledecka said, without the slightest hesitation: "The best satisfaction is really that I could be here on both and win both".

"I don't feel like that but it sounds good, for sure", said Ledecka after her stunning win. "She's the hardest-working athlete I've ever met", Trapp said, adding that she will train in any conditions "and if she doesn't come out with the fastest runs she's mad about it".

According to NPR, Ester Ledecka secured the gold medal in ladies' snowboard parallel giant slalom on Saturday (Feb. 24).

As was the case following her super-G victory, the Czech conducted her post-race interviews while wearing her goggles.

She avoided all the typical pratfalls that can come while racing on snow, including, believe it or not, squirrels - one of which skittered in front of Austria's Daniella Ubling and almost lost its tail.

The Czech, dubbed a "miracle on snow", then blew away Austrian Daniela Ulbing, who had narrowly avoided running over a squirrel in winning her first race.

"When she comes back from snowboarding she always goes too round and when she comes back from skiing she always goes too straight so it's always back and forth with the line".

"The first, but not the last", Niskanen said. Already, Ledecka planned to make history at the Pyeongchang Olympics by competing in Alpine skiing and snowboarding events.

Dahlmeier was arguably the most dominant athlete of the 2017 World Championships season - winning five golds and a silver in six events - and was once again the best biathlete here, taking two individual golds and a bronze.

In Pyeongchang, not only did Germany win gold in all three bobsled events - matching its feat from Turin 2006 - but also became the first country to win six sliding gold medals at a single Olympics. Her reason for doing so was just as it was seven days ago: she did not have time to put on make-up.

Nana Takagi will go down as the first women's mass start Olympic champion, the Japanese speed skater claiming her second gold of the Games.

She says she has no desire to race the men - something Vonn has pointed toward over the past several months. "I have many problems with what is going on with youth sports in general".

After her win in the super-G, she celebrated with KFC.

"But the thing is, it's a different sport", Reiter said.

Where will the world find her next?

There were also two gold medals for Switzerland, a first for Finland, as well as one apiece for Canada, the United States and Japan on day 15. "She is an incredible person, once in a lifetime, and she has got a great heart and head, she is an incredible human being", he said.
