From Lindsey Vonn’s final Olympic medal to a snowboarder winning an Alpine skiing race, check out the best moments from the 2018 Winter Olympics Alpine skiing competition.

Snowboarder Ester Ledecka wins shocking Alpine skiing gold medal

Everyone was surprised that Ester Ledecka won the Alpine skiing super-G gold medal.

Even Ledecka.

So when she saw her time, .01 seconds faster than defending Olympic champion Anna Veith, she could not believe her eyes.

“How did that happen?” Ledecka asked, shaking her head.

Mikaela Shiffrin wins Olympic gold, but misses podium in signature discipline

“I came into the Olympics as a multiple-medal threat, and I knew that, but I was also thinking on the plane ride over here that I could also literally walk away with nothing too, I could completely choke in every way possible,” Shiffrin said on “TODAY.” “So to be here sitting with you guys right now and having two medals is a relief but also just insane.”

Waving goodbye to Korea like 🤗🤗🤗 / / / / / What a mind-boggling, incredible, whirlwind it has been the last 3 weeks. It’s hard to believe #pyeongchang2018 has already come and gone (minus a few last events)!! With moments of victory, moments of *defeat*, and everything in between, I’m walking away with a huge smile! Thank you to everyone who made this possible- to South Korea, who graciously welcomed us to their culture and home; to the organizers and Olympic committees, who work tirelessly to pull off hundreds of events and competitions in the short span of 2 weeks- never ceases to amaze me how they manage it! To all of @teamusa for being true champions inside and out and representing the USA with grace and honor; to my family and friends, for all of the support through my entire career and especially the last few weeks; to my fans, for your unconditional belief in me and my dreams; and most importantly (!!!) to my team- my coaches, ski technician, physio, and sponsors, for everything that you do for me day in and day out. For making my dreams a reality. For inspiring me to work harder and harder everyday because it’s so easy to do when you are right beside me. Just. Thank you. 🌟💛🌟 K. Bye!
