South Korea: ‘Queen of the games’ Ester Ledecka talks winning historic Olympic double gold

Czech Skier and Snowboarder Ester Ledecka reacted to becoming seen as the «Queen of the Games» during a press conference in Pyeongchang on Sunday, following a historic Olympic feat on Saturday when the athlete conquered the Snowboard Parallel Giant Slalom to become the first woman to win two gold medals in the same Olympics in different sports. Ledecka said she found it fun to train and improve... Еще herself, whilst also admitting «I cannot say that everyday I woke up and said 'wee lets go to the hill' because sometimes its 5 o'clock in the morning and I just want to stay in bed». The 22-year-old athlete shook the sporting world last week when she won the Alpine Skiing's Super-G race by 0.11 of a second, after previously weighing in at no higher than 29th place. Ledecka has been dubbed «Queen of the Games» by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), among many other names, to describe her remarkable success at the XIII Winter Olympic Games.
