Surprise super-G winner Ledecka won't race in downhill
PYEONGCHANG-GUN, SOUTH KOREA - FEBRUARY 17: Ester Ledecka of Czech Republic wins the gold medal during the Alpine Skiing Women's Super-G at Jeongseon Alpine Centre on February 17, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.

The surprise winner of the super-G in Alpine skiing at the Pyeongchang Olympics is not even attempting to compete in the downhill.

Ester Ledecka of the Czech Republic will be the first women's super-G champion to not enter the downhill at the same Winter Games since Diann Roffe in 1994.

Ledecka stunned Lindsey Vonn, defending champion Anna Veith and everyone else by coming out of nowhere to win the super-G on Saturday after never finishing better than seventh in 19 career World Cup ski races.

She is also a snowboarder and is expected to enter qualifying for the parallel giant slalom in that sport on Thursday.

That would make her the first Olympic competitor in Alpine skiing and snowboarding.
