Only 3 days ago, Lindsey Vonn told CNN that she wouldn’t be representing President Trump in the 2018 Olympics. She also boldly proclaimed that she wouldn’t visit the White House if she were invited.
“I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremonies.”
Is it really appropriate for an Olympic athlete representing the United States of America to make her performance in the Olympics about her hate for Donald Trump?
Was it really necessary for Vonn to spew her hate on a network that is not only being called into question for their inaccurate (fake news) reporting on a regular basis but is also known for their extremely unfair coverage of our President?
Well, after her miserable showing in Switzerland yesterday, it looks like Lindsey needs to focus a little more on her skiing technique, and a little less on her anti- Trump rhetoric.
According to the AP – Lindsey Vonn finished a World Cup super-G in extreme pain Saturday and was treated by race doctors for a back injury.
The American star crossed the finish line in obvious distress, in 24th place and 1.56 seconds behind the winner, and slumped to the snow.
She compressed her back on the fifth gate, according to U.S. Ski & Snowboard.
Vonn stayed in the finish house to be treated, and one hour later limped slowly into a waiting car to be driven from the St. Moritz course.
Minutes earlier, her father Alan Kildow told The Associated Press his daughter was “OK.”
In a race interrupted several times by gusting crosswinds, Vonn wore the No. 4 bib and was left standing at the start gate during the first delay of about three minutes. She stayed warm with a thick jacket draped on her shoulders.
The surprise winner was Jasmine Flury of Switzerland, who had a career-best World Cup finish of fifth before Saturday.
Perhaps the outspoken Lindsey Vonn will get her wish and not have to represent the President or decline his invitation to the White House…
