Lindsey Vonn made her 2018 Olympic debut, finishing tied for sixth in super-G.
It was her first Olympic race since 2010, when she claimed the downhill gold medal and super-G bronze medal.
Ester Ledecka, a two-sport athlete from the Czech Republic who is also competing in Alpine snowboarding in PyeongChang, was the surprise winner.
Ledecka bested defending Olympic champion Anna Veith by just .01 seconds
Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein earned the bronze medal.
The start of the race was delayed one hour due to strong winds.
Vonn is expected to return to the snow Tuesday in the downhill. She won the 2010 Olympic gold medal in the event.
The next Alpine skiing event is men’s giant slalom on Saturday, when Ted Ligety will race to defend his Olympic title.
