Lindsey Caroline Vonn (born October 18, 1984) is a former US Ski Team World Cup alpine ski racer. She is one of only two female skiers to have won four World Cup overall championships, together with Annemarie, with three straight victories in 2008, 2009, and 2010, plus another in 2012.
Vonn is one of only six women to have won World Cup events in all five alpine skiing disciplines: downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, and super combined. She has 82 World Cup wins in her career as of February 3, 2018. Her 82 World Cup wins set a new record for women, surpassing Annemarie of Austria, who had held the record since the 1970s.
Vonn got the Laureus Sportswoman of the Year award in 2010 and was named the US Olympic Committee’s sportswoman of the year.
Injuries have prompted Vonn to miss significant portions of many seasons, including almost all of the 2014 season and the majority of the 2013 season. While recuperating from her accident, she worked as an NBC News reporter, covering the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. However, in 2019, she declared her retirement, citing injuries as the reason.
Lindsey Vonn has a net worth of $100 million.
