Lindsey Vonn Ski Racer

Lindsey Vonn was taught to ski by her grandfather, Don Kildow at an early age, in Milton, Wisconsin. She, therefore, began skiing as a child in Burnsville, Minnesota, Buck Hill Ski, Snowboard, and through family vacations that included 16-hour drives from Minnesota to Vail. she said “I would be in the back under a sleeping bag, and she’d be driving and singing along to some Eric Clapton tape,” she said in an interview. By the time she was 7, she had skied in Minnesota, Colorado, and Oregon year-round. When skiing in Colorado, she had lessons at Ski Club Vail (SCV), an alpine racing program (subsequently expanded and renamed Ski & Snowboard Club Vail) that taught, and still teaches skiers from ages 6 and up.

At the end of the first Vail season, her mother asked if the coach thought her how to slow skier; the answer was an emphatic “NO,” It was definitely NOT in slow skier. Based on her newly confirmed speed, Lindsey and her mother asked about enrolling Lindsey into the older “Age-Class” program, which they said, had previously denied their enrollment request. In the late 1990s, she and her siblings and mother stopped commuting from Minnesota to Colorado and instead moved to Colorado to ski exclusively at Ski Club Vail. During her first SCV year in Vail, Lindsey and one of her sisters skied together in the same “gravity corps” SCV group.

“Now all my brothers and sisters had left their friends for me. That was stressful on them. I felt so guilty.” However, the move paid off because in 1999 Lindsey Kildow and Will McDonald became the first American athletes to win the “Cadets” slalom events in Italy’s Trofeo Topolino di Sci Alpino. In 1995 at age 10, she met Street in person at a promotional event. A few years later, “Street was stunned watching a 15-year-old Lindsey ski for the first time in 1999. She marveled at Vonn’s knack for following the fall line. ‘The faster she went, the bigger the smile she got on her face,’ Street said. ‘You can’t teach somebody to love the fall line like that little girl loved the fall line.'”

After climbing through the ranks of the U.S. Ski Team, she made her World Cup debut at age 16 on November 18, 2000, in Park City, Utah.From 2002 to 2005 she was in her Olympic debut at the 2002 Winter Olympics when she was 17years old, she raced in both slalom and combined in Salt Lake City, with her best result coming with sixth in combined. On March 4, 2003, she earned a silver medal in downhill in the Junior World Championship at Puy-Saint-Vincent, France. She credits a change in her attitude toward training to a bike ride with fellow ski racer Julia Mancuso and Mancuso’s father Ciro when Vonn visited them at their home in Lake Tahoe, California. With little biking experience, she quickly found herself miles behind Julia and Ciro.

In 2004, she climbed onto the World Cup podium for the first time with a third-place finish in downhill in January 2004 at Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy. She captured five more World Cup podiums over the next two months. In 2005, she competed in four races at her first World Championships held in Bormio, Italy, pulling in fourth-place finishes in both the downhill and the combined. From 2006 to 2007, she participated in the second Winter Olympics in 2006, she clocked the second-best time in the first practice run yet crashed in the second training run for the downhill race on February 13, 2006, in San Sicario, Italy; she was evacuated by helicopter to Turin and was hospitalized overnight.

Despite a bruised hip and strong pains, she returned on the slope 2 days later to compete and finished eighth. The gritty performance earned her the U.S. Olympic Spirit Award, as voted by American fans, fellow Team USA athletes, former U.S. Olympians, and members of the media for best representing the Olympic Spirit. She earned her first “Big race” medals with silver in both downhill and super-G at the 2007 World Championships in Åre, Sweden. A training crash before the slalom caused her a low-level ACL sprain to her right knee, ending her season 4 weeks early. She finished third for the season in the women’s 2007 World Cup disciplines of downhill and super-G..

From 2008 to 2010 she won the overall World Cup for three consecutive years. She set up a new American record for the most World Cup downhill victories with ten, winning at Crans-Montana, Switzerland, on March 8. In March 2008 to 2009, she repeated as overall World Cup champion, repeated as downhill champion and also won the season championship in super-G by winning the final race of the season. During the season, she broke Tamara McKinney’s American record of 18 World Cup victories when she won the super-G at Tarvisio in February. During the 2009 World Championships in Val-d’Isère, France, she won her first world championship and became the first American woman to win the world super-G title. In December 2009, Vonn sustained a bruised arm after a crash during the opening run of the World Cup giant slalom.

The third consecutive overall World Cup title also equals Phil Mahre’s American record and makes Vonn the third woman to achieve it, behind Petra Kronberger with 3 straight and Annemarie Moser-Pröll with 5 straight. From left to right: Tina Maze of Slovenia, Andrea Fischbacher of Austria, and Lindsey Vonn of the U.S. with the medals they earned in the super-G In her second event, the super combined, Vonn finished first in the downhill portion of the race. She crashed in her first run, resulting in a broken fourth finger and Vonn’s disqualification from the event. 2011: Losing the overall World Cup to Maria Riesch by 3 points Vonn at the Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles game, April 2011 After 3 consecutive overall World Cups, Vonn faced more serious competition from Maria Riesch of Germany in 2011. 2015: Comeback Vonn made her comeback to the top of the podium on December 6, 2014, at the Women’s World Cup downhill race at Lake Louise, Alberta, winning the event in only her second race back.

At the 2015 World Championships in Vail / Beaver Creek, Colorado, Vonn won a bronze medal in the first of ladies’ events, the super-G. She placed 5th in the downhill race and 14th in the giant slalom race. On March 18, 2015, she won the last World Cup downhill race at Meribel, France and claimed the World Cup downhill title for the seventh time. In a tearful interview following the woman’s downhill race, Vonn stated: “Our family never gives up and I never gave up. I kept working hard and I’m really proud of this medal and I know he is too.” She later scattered some of her grandfather’s ashes near the men’s downhill racing course, stating: “I know that it would mean a lot to him to be back here, a part of him is in South Korea always.” 2019 In October 2018, ahead of the start of the 2018-19 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup, Vonn announced that she would retire from competition at the end of the season.
