Top 10 Fun Facts

  1. Hit the bricks, Tinker Toys! Lindsey was on her first pair of skis by the age of two.
  2. Eight years later, Lindsey met her role model: Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street. The elder skier would go on to become Vonn's mentor - so be nice when you meet your heroes, kids. It could be the start of a beautiful friendship.
  3. Hitting the books, hitting the slopes: while training during her formative years, Lindsey pursued an unconventional education through a correspondence program at University of Missouri High School.
  4. U-S-A! U-S-A! At 17, Lindsey made her Olympic debut at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. That's called home court advantage, y'all.
  5. Although she didn't medal in Salt Lake City, Lindsey finished sixth in the combined event - the highest placing of any American female skier at the Games. Not bad for a girl too young to vote.
  6. Lindsey also went home without a medal at the 2006 Torino Games, but she did earn the U.S. Olympic Spirit Award (voted on by fans, fellow athletes and members of the media) after returning to compete in her event mere hours after being hospitalized by a crash during her training run.
  7. You ain't seen nothin' yet: Lindsey was named Colorado Athlete of the Year for 2009, just a month before her outstanding showing at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
  8. In fact, Lindsey's performance at the 2010 Winter Games prompted fans and the media alike to call them the "Vonn-couver Olympics." Become the first American to earn a gold medal in a particular event and they just might nickname the games after YOU!
  9. Sorta like boyfriend jeans: at the urging of her husband, former Olympic skier Thomas Vonn, Lindsey has started using men's skis - a tactic that could help her gain even more speed down the slopes.
  10. Forget the medals, I'll take the livestock! After a 2005 downhill victory in Val-d'Isere, France, Lindsey opted to accept a cow from French cheese farmers as her prize. The bovine's apropos name? Olympe.
