When Will Lindsey Vonn Hang Up Her Skis?

March 20, 2018

It’s widely known that gold medalist Lindsey Vonn is getting ready to retire by the end of the next season, so don’t expect to see her back at the Olympics.

“I just don’t foresee there being any possibility that my body can withstand another four years,” Vonn said in an interview with Cheddar Tuesday.

But she’s not completely ruling it out.

“I [am] leaving just a little bit of wiggle room just in case something happens and the doctors figure out [how to make] my knee to feel better.”

The 33-year-old champion, who won gold in 2010, became the oldest female alpine skiing medalist ever when she earned bronze in the downhill race in PyeongChang this year.

In 2013, Vonn injured her right knee and needed to get surgery, taking her out of the competition for eight years.
