Ted Ligety, one of America's most enhanced Alpine skiers, tied for fifteenth place in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics men's mammoth slalom.
The favored Marcel Hirscher of Austria won gold, while Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway took silver and Alexis Pinturault of France took bronze.
Ligety, a 33-year-old from Park City, Utah, won gold in the 2014 Winter Olympics' monster slalom, and gold in the super joined occasion in the 2006 recreations. The competitor skis with what The New York Times has called a self-imagined style, situating himself so low on each turn that he's nearly "sitting on the snow."
Among more than 100 rivals in the field, Ligety was more seasoned than everything except three, as indicated by The Washington Post. He's been positioned eighth on the planet in goliath slalom.
"Ski hustling is presumably the slightest ensured don out there, you know. It's extremely uncommon — really, customarily — when the top choices win," Ligety told NPR in 2014.
This year, the favored skier won. Hirscher went too far at 1:08.27 in his first run, placing him in the lead position before the race's second run.
Ligety's first run wasn't so hot — the American put an unordinary separate between his skis and the course's markers, and completed his first keep running in 1:10.71. American Ryan Cochran-Siegle, 25, crossed at 1:10:75.
Hirscher clutched ahead of everyone else and won the occasion's gold decoration with a moment run time of 1:09.77 and an aggregate time of 2:18.04 — beating silver medalist Kristoffersen by finished an entire second.
Ligety's second run enhanced at 1:10.71. He tied with Gino Caviezel of Switzerland for fifteenth place, with the two skiers accumulating an aggregate time of 2:21.25.

Monster slalom is an Alpine skiing occasion where competitors ski downhill between sets of posts. NPR's Tamara Keith has jested that the occasion's objective "is to be sufficiently crazy to go to a great degree quick, and in control simply enough not to crash."
"I was extremely astonished when I saw the time. It didn't feel like I squashed it, however it didn't feel 2 and a half seconds awful," Ligety disclosed to The Associated Press.
"I just idea it would run somewhat more difficult than the way it. ... I only sort of like over-skied it and perhaps thought the rolls would become possibly the most important factor somewhat more, and they were simple. No reason," he stated, as indicated by Bleacher Report.
Ligety told journalists after the race that Pyeongchang would likely be his last Olympic amusements.
