    Pyeongchang 2018: The Comebacks

    With the Winter Games six months away, we take a look at some of the athletes who fell short of their goals at the Sochi Games and are looking to make comebacks in South Korea. (Published Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017)

    American alpine skier Lindsey Vonn is making it clear she'll be representing her country, but not her president, when she participates in the Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

    "Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president," Vonn told CNN. "I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony."

    Vonn added, "I want to represent our country well. I don't think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that."

    Vonn is attempting to capture her second gold medal in Pyeongchang. She revealed to CNN she would decline an invitation to the White House if she were to win gold at the games.

    "Absolutely not," she said. "No. But I have to win to be invited. Actually I think every U.S. team member is invited so no I won't go."
