Lindsey Vonn Retires

by

Lindsey Vonn competed in 2019 World Championships in Are, Switzerland, and the unfortunate end became a reality for the Minnesota Native. Vonn competed in the Downhill and Super G events over the weekend. In her final competition, Vonn found herself on the podium yet again placing third in the downhill event. With eighty two career victories, Lindsey Vonn is the winningest female skier in history. Previously in 2018, she was posed the question of retirement, and she said she was going to retire once she was broke Ingemar Stenmark’s record to have the most victories of any skier in history. Sadly, this was not the case coming up four short of tying Stenmark’s record. As Vonn enters into retirement, she will have three Olympic medals (one gold and two bronze) through three Olympic games and eight World Championships. The retirement comes after numerous injuries, and in her final race, even though it was a bronze medal, it was quite the way for her to go out.
