Are, Sweden (CNN)Lindsey Vonn was never going to slip quietly into the sunset. The most successful female Alpine skier in history, the greatest America has produced, barreled out of the gate and threw herself downhill for one last time and made sure her farewell race was in keeping with her golden career: historic, dramatic and filled with emotion. Yet with bronze on the Swedish slopes where she won her first championship medals, Vonn added polish to her concluding chapter as an elite athlete -- becoming the oldest woman to secure a medal at a world championships, only the fourth skier to win a medal at six world championships and equaling Christel Cranz and Annemarie Moser-Proll record of five women's downhill medals at world championships.
