"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.
