Skier Lindsey Vonn says she'll represent USA at Olympics, not Trump

Lindsey Vonn Representing 'People of the United States, Not the President' at Winter Olympics

"Absolutely not", Vonn said. "No".

She added that she hopes "to represent the people of the United States, not the president" at the upcoming Winter Olympics.

"I want to represent our country well", Vonn explained. "And I don't think that there are a lot of people now in our government that do that", she said.

If she wins a gold medal and is invited to come to the White House to celebrate the honor, would she attend? Vonn will more than likely be seen as being disrespectful to Trump, when she is truly staying true to the true spirit of the games.

As well as competing for a second Olympic gold medal in South Korea, she is attempting to break the record of 86 World Cup victories held by Ingemar Stenmark since 1989.

Vonn is hailed as America's best female ski racer.

Vonn is no fan of the current president, but her quote will likely be overanalyzed and torn apart from various political angles to fit varying political stances.

The Golden State Warriors notably skipped their White House trip as National Basketball Association champions earlier this year after Trump withdrew his invitation to star Stephen Curry, who had previously announced he didn't want to go. Injuries prevented Vonn from competing in the 2014 Olympics, but she's hoping to get back onto the slopes this time around at the venerable (for high-level skiers) age of 33.

"I have to win to be invited".

Lindsey Vonn will be elsewhere if the U.S. Olympic team visits the White House. She broke her arm a year ago and is still recovering from nerve damage.
