Lindsey Vonn Announces Retirement
The World Championships in Sweden next week will be Lindsey Vonn’s final race
Next week Lindsey Vonn will end her amazing professional run as one of the greatest skiers in history during the World Championships. In 2010 Lindsey Vonn became the first American woman in history to win an Olympic gold medal in downhill. She has since been a major inspiration to skiers all around the world.
I can look back at 82 World Cup wins, 20 World Cup titles, 3 Olympic medals, 7 World Championship medals and say that I have accomplished something that no other woman in HISTORY has ever done, and that is something that I will be proud of FOREVER!Lindsey Vonn – February 1st, 2019
