If there was a downside to her finalOlympics, it was the Twitter noise that erupted after Vonn's disappointing sixth-place finish in the super-G, from people angered by her criticisms of PresidentDonald Trump.
Goggia finished in a time of 1 minute, 39.22 seconds to hold off Mowinckel by 0.09 seconds.
Goggia told reporters that Vonn was "the greatest skier".
"I feel like a real honor to be racing with the greatest skier of all time on the female side".

Lindsey Vonn has taken aim at the "savage abuse" she has suffered on social medial but insists she will "not be beaten" by internet trolls.
The bookmakers agree and the World Cup standings, where Goggia narrowly leads from Vonn, also suggests a duel between the pair. "He's been such a big part of my life, and I really hoped that he would be alive to see me". I moved like a Samurai. I take the Olympics very seriously, and what they mean and what they represent, " Vonn responded. I believed in myself.
