The Czech world champion and hot favourite had earlier shocked the world of alpine skiing by capturing gold in last week's super-G skiing.
If her accomplishment wasn't good enough, Ledecka defeated Germany's Selina Joerg in the final by 0.46 seconds using borrowed skis.
The 22-year-old Czech had delivered the most stunning victory of the 2018 Winter Games, coming out of nowhere to win the Super-G by one-hundredth of a second last week. And the worrying news for her rivals is that Ledecka intends to carry on doing both events.
By winning gold in both snowboard and Alpine skiing, Ledecka has challenged the conventional wisdom regarding what is achievable, and she had a message for any youngsters who might wish to follow in her footsteps and aim for success on both skis and snowboard. Even she couldn't quite believe it. Although, according to her coach Justin Reiter, this shouldn't have happened.
"I always doubted if it was possible", Reiter said Saturday.
"But you never doubt Ester".
"I'll get home and lie in bed and maybe sleep for a while", she said.
Ester Ledecka may claim to have a split personality with two personas, "Ester the skier" and "Ester the snowboarder".
Bruins Acquire Rick Nash From Rangers For Spooner, Beleskey, Others
In anticipation of trading Nash, the Rangers had the forward sit out their past two games to avoid the possibility injury. Gionta last played in the National Hockey League in 2017 for the Buffalo Sabres , serving as the team captain.
"It's not easy to do two sports", she said Saturday.
"We did the best that we could to try to shelter her from you guys picking her bones clean".
"My plan is to stay with my heart, so for now, I think I will do both because I love both and I love to do this", she added.
Vonn would like to be a multisport athlete, but her forays into tennis, figure skating, soccer and gymnastics were short-lived. "We're trying to take her away from training, and from the slopes, some days". "And (Saturday) I proved it possible". She didnt want to hear about what was impossible.
"I love racing. This is the best thing about my job - the racing".
In an era of sports specialization, Ledecka has been an evangelist for maintaining variety.
"I don't know how to explain this", the Czech said.
Snowboarding has helped with edge control. "So there is a lot of security and stability which I have from snowboarding".
California parents hit with new charges in kids' torture case
The charges against them only cover the time the family lived in Riverside County, which began in 2010. The Turpins were ordered back to court March 23 and have a preliminary hearing set for May 14.
Ledecka revealed that it felt unusual to go back-and-forth between the snowboard and skis.
"But each time we get Ester back on the snowboard side, it's like chunk of coal".
"Then I was just standing there today at the start and suddenly the snowboarding girl showed up".
Ledecka entered the press conference after her win in parallel giant slalom in the same fashion as her win post super-G, still wearing her goggles. Ledecka recorded the fastest time, she said, and "everybody stopped and jaws dropped, like that run isn't supposed to be skied that way". Ledecka is the defending parallel giant slalom world champion, and is ranked number one in the world in the discipline.
Her smile and the way she punctuates sentences with a quick laugh have brought a certain glee to these Games. One day before the closing ceremony, they top the table with Germany on 13 golds, but with a vastly superior overall medals total. But she just doesn't think so.
"There are the greatest athletes in the world here", she told reporters. When reporters grew curious, she explained that winning a gold medal had caught her off-guard.
"Yeah, for sure", she said. I just feel good in my bubble.
