Lindsey Vonn completed her first two training runs for the downhill event on Sunday and Monday at the Winter Olympics.

After Vonn failed to medal in the Super-G, her training times suggest she will be in a good position to rebound in the downhill.

Despite Vonn intentionally slowing herself down, she still "won" the first training run and finished third in the second.

Vonn later admitted to playing mind games with her opponents.

Lindsey Vonn came up short in her first Olympics event, but early signs suggest that won't happen in the ladies' downhill event, despite her own attempts to hide how fast she was really going.

Towards the end of Vonn's second training run on Monday, she came out of her crouch and raised her arms, slowing herself down before the finish line.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: No one wants to host the Olympics anymore will they go away?See Also:This American skier competed in his dead brother's ski suit in an emotional tribute at the Winter OlympicsWhy some female Olympic athletes are referred to as 'ladies' instead of 'women'Mikaela Shiffrin gave a great lesson on embracing failure at the Olympics after missing out on a medal in her best eventSEE ALSO: The best photos of the Winter Olympics so far
