Vonn currently sits tied for sixth in the women’s giant slalom, her first event of the 2018 Olympics.

The American skier began competition, and a late error on the bottom half of the course ended her medal chances.

Czech Republic’s Ester Ledecka is currently in the gold medal position, edging out 2014 Olympic gold medalist Anna Veith.

Update: Ester Ledecka took the gold in surprising fashion, besting out Veith by .01 seconds.
