Vonn ready to bow out on a high note

Lindsey Vonn's Comeback Gets Poetic In New Olympic Under Armour Ad

Now American Lindsey Vonn, the poster girl of the Winter Olympics, has asked her friends on the Norwegian men's ski team to find her a new man. She won a bronze in that event at Vancouver in 2010 and a gold in the downhill. Questions about Don Kildow, and the tears they prompted were inevitable following Vonn's use of social media to pay tribute to the man who first put her on skis as a two-year-old in Wisconsin.

There already are plenty of expectations from others heading into her first race, the super-G, on February 17.

"I will race for you in Korea and I will try as hard as I can to win for you".

"She's a definitely a bigger star than me", said Vonn, unabashedly making goo-goo eyes at Lucy, as her faithful companion sat at the foot of stage, where the greatest downhill racer in USA history took measure of all the big victories and painful injuries in her career.

"I was skiing really well, so I thought, 'Oh, everything's fine.' But I wasn't able to keep my mental focus until the finish, which is something that I actually pride myself on being really good at, normally".

Ever the prolific tweeter, Vonn also included a play-by-play of her experience on the delayed flight, telling her followers that she caught a man next to her discreetly trying to take a selfie with her when his camera flash accidentally gave him away. "And I really hoped he'd be alive to see me but I know he's watching and I know that he's going to help me. And".

"It's what I think about first thing when I wake up and what I think about when I go to sleep", she said.

The gloves will be off for Lindsey Vonn at her fourth - and likely final - Olympic Games, but not just yet.




Vonn, a four-time overall World Cup champion, has notched up 81 World Cup victories said she has Swedish legend Ingemar Stenmark's record of 86 race wins in her sights. "I'm proud to be your granddaughter and I will think of you always".

"She's usually in the hotel room whenever I'm racing", Vonn said.

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".

"In 2010 I was a much healthier athlete but in 2018 I am a much stronger athlete". She enjoys sleeping the majority of the day. "I'm feeling much better, much more like myself".

The men and women will compete on the same course for the first time in Olympic history. "She travels with me everywhere". For the ski hill.

"I have someone looking out for me", she said. Linsdey Vonn has been an Olympian since she was a teenager. Now, one more time, she encounters a different set of circumstances.

Not so much physically exhausted - although that is a constant factor with the daily grind of the World Cup circuit - as she was simply mentally wiped out.
