Биография

Lindsey VONN

Lindsey Vonn brought her sporting career to an end on 10 February 2019, competing at her eighth World Championship in Åre, Sweden, taking a bronze in the downhill. During the 15 years she competed at the highest level, she established herself as one of Alpine skiing’s all-time greats. At Vancouver 2010 she became the USA’s first ever women’s downhill Olympic champion. She set a number of new records for women, including an unmatched 82 World Cup victories, as well as several for men and women, including a record 18 victories on the same course (Lake Louise), 20 crystal globes and 43 downhill victories.

From the plains of Minnesota to the summit of Mount Olympus

The girl who would become an Olympic downhill champion at Vancouver 2010 started skiing at the age of three with her father and grandfather on the gentle slopes of Minnesota. Vonn competed in her first races at the age of seven, and when she was nine she took part in her first international competitions. Subsequent World Junior Championships and World Cup appearances, coupled with a string of good results, led to her being selected for the USA team for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

First games at the age of 17

 In Salt Lake City, she finished sixth in the combined and 32nd in the slalom. Two years later, Vonn cemented her position in the elite, stepping onto the downhill podium for the first time.

The following season, she scored her first downhill win in the opening race of the campaign, in Lake Louise (CAN) in December 2004. A specialist in speed events, she also won her first points in the technical events, allowing her to climb the World Cup standings.
