Ester Ledecka took gold in Ladies’ Super-G, edging out American Lindsey Vonn who ended up tying for sixth place at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Ledecka, a snowboarder from the Czech Republic, took many by surprise with her Alpine Skiing win at the Olympic games.

“I really don’t know what happened. You tell me … I was riding. I really don’t know what happened. It was great,” Ledecka said in a transcript, according to NPR.

However, she’s not even close to being done with the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics.

Ledecka will compete in the Ladies’ Parallel Giant Slalom Snowboarding event next Saturday.
