Lindsey Vonn attends her press conference ahead of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 9, 2018 in PyeongChang, South Korea.
Kjetil Jansrud, who won super-G gold and downhill bronze in Sochi as well as giant slalom in Vancouver in 2010, finished just behind Innerhofer but didn't put much stock in the rankings.
"I would love to", she continued, "but unfortunately, I just don't think I can contend for a medal, so there's really no point".
"I know, like, it's a comparison between sports, and I don't think there's a sport in the Winter Olympics where you can even win 23 medals across three or four Olympics, but, yeah, I could never imagine myself even in the same sentence as Michael Phelps", she said.
How the Winter Olympics will miss her, a bonefide, full-bore, max blonde, Hollywood turn, who happens to be pretty good on skis, too.
Vonn's first race is scheduled for February 17 in the super-G.
The 22-year-old slalom gold medalist from Sochi has racked up 10 World Cup victories this season but has managed to reach the podium just once in her last six races, a disappointing dip she attributed to fatigue. She is 33, and is openly talking about, nearly certainly, being her last Olympics. With all Vonn's travails - she figures, given all her injuries, she has spent three complete years in rehab - it was easy to downplay her potential impact here. She was second in the downhill test event past year and said the downhill course at Jeongseon Alpine Centre suits her.

"I'm of Norwegian descent and so I feel like I'm pseudo team member of the Norwegian team". She's usually in the hotel room whenever I'm racing. Before Vonn headed back onto the World Cup circuit last fall, she made what has become an annual sojourn back to their simple house, where she sleeps on a house in the basement.
"I want so badly to do well for him, and I miss him so much", Vonn said of her paternal grandfather, who died in November. She said on social media that it will be especially emotional for her due to her grandfather's passing, saying she would "make him proud". "I know what I am capable of and I can handle myself better than I did", she said.
"In 2010 I was a much healthier athlete but in 2018 I am a much stronger athlete. She travels with me everywhere". Now, every time I ski down the mountain I know you'll be there with me.
She said the the pressure is even greater now because this is her last Games and "because I want to end on a high note".
"It's not a training run that tells you very much", he said, listing the shortened course, the shifting tailwind and a shaved down last jump.
Vonn said her increased mental strength really comes into play when she's in the starting gate.
