Lindsey Vonn gave it everything she had.

And that was good enough for a bronze medal in her final Olympic downhill.

Vonn finished 0.47 of a second behind Italy's Sofia Goggia and 0.38 of a second back of Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway.

The medal was Vonn's third in Olympic competition, going along with a downhill gold and a SUper-G bronze in the 2010 Vancouver Games.

In an emotional interview with NBC after the race, Vonn said it was her last Olympic downhill, adding she gave it all she had and raced to make her late grandfather proud.
