She was an Olympic champion, in the conversation as the best Alpine skier in history, and then her body was broken.
Lindsey Vonn broke down in tears on Friday as she vowed to win a second Olympic gold medal in the memory of her late grandfather.
However, Vonn's not retiring after the Games. She is friends with fashion designers. She has overcome blown-out knees, a shattered humerus, a broken ankle, a severed tendon in her hand, a failed marriage and a complicated relationship with her father to become arguably the greatest skier of all time.
But much to the chagrin of Vonn, her fans and NBC, which had built a promotional campaign around her, she missed the 2014 Olympics after re-injuring her right knee. Last weekend, she won a pair of World Cup downhill races at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, the latest indication that she is fit and fearless again. But the heart of her story has little to do with the tabloid details of her personal life or the red-carpet snapshots in which her world seems obnoxiously flawless.
"But I'm still here, because I want to live for the future, not the past".
Two days before Grandpa Don died, Vonn spoke to him for the last time. I just never really feel good enough off the slope. "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".
Those sentences read smoothly, and the sentiments are real. While Vonn won't race until she runs the Super-G on February 17, it will be the first of seven days of competition, with three days of downhill training followed by the downhill race on February 21, then a day of training for the combined race that pairs downhill and slalom on the 23rd.
Joe Johnson Signs With Rockets (Not Celtics) After Buyout

Since then, Shiffrin has gone on to win gold in the slalom at the World Championships in 2015 and 2017 as well as a silver medal in the giants slalom in 2017. "I get annoying to my coaches", she continued with a chuckle.
A healthy Vonn has been a rarity the last few years, but her problems have usually been more along the lines of injuries rather than illness.
But if there's one thing to know about Lindsey Vonn, it's that nothing ever comes easy. So the waxheads who chew on debates about the best of all-time must mix genders in the conversation. As of mid-January, he put together a five-slalom winning streak. "I've spent many a Christmas in hotel rooms by myself", she says.
Shiffrin is unsure just which events she will compete in at the 2018 Olympics, saying it will depend on her fitness. "Even though he had more wins, he had a different schedule than her and had many more opportunities and different risk tolerance". At the most recent event in Cortina, she finished 3rd, under a half-second behind Vonn. But it has caused her bones to break and her body to bend in ways it probably shouldn't. I miss him so much.
"Ah, it's really hard", replied Vonn, the most successful female ski racer of all time. "Maybe that's why I love skiing so much". And right now, with one more week until the start of the upcoming season, she feels as confident on skis as she has in years. Because the men go first, Vonn was able to march in her first Opening Ceremony since 2002. The emotions of her grandfather's death are still raw.
