Vonn is one of six women to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing – downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, and super combined – and has won 76 World Cup races in her career through February 6, 2016. The 76 World Cup victories are an all-time women’s record, passing Annemarie Moser-Pröll of Austria who had held the record since the 1970s, and only Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden with 86 World Cup victories has more. With her Olympic gold and bronze medals, two World Championship gold medals in 2009 (plus three silver medals in 2007 and 2011), and four overall World Cup titles, Vonn has become the most successful American ski racer in history.

Vonn received the Laureus World Sports Awards Sportswoman of the Year for 2010. She was also honored again as the USOC’s sportswoman of the year for 2010.

Due to various injuries, Vonn has missed parts of several seasons, including almost all of the 2014 season and most of the 2013 season. She worked as a correspondent for NBC News covering the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia during

Appearances

Despite an injury, Lindsey was featured in a one-hour television special on NBC titled How to Raise an Olympian which aired on Wednesday, February 5, 2014. The program, hosted by NBC News’s Meredith Vieira, chronicled the journeys of seven U.S. Olympians and featured interviews from parents and coaches along with home video and photos from each athlete’s childhood. The event was broadcast on television with live social-media components to enhance each segment. During the 2014 Winter Olympic Games Vonn was also a correspondent for NBC News appearing on Today.

Vonn frequently stays at the home of her friend and major competitor, Maria Höfl-Riesch, in Garmisch, Germany.

Though she makes many public appearances, Vonn says training takes up most of her life except for a few weeks after the ski season. She trains 6–8 hours a day for 6 days a week during the summer, incorporating endurance cycling, tight-rope walking, and reaction training into her indoor regimen. She also spends a good portion of her training actually skiing, focusing on technical aspects and speed all year round

Vonn appeared in the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition which featured Olympians from the 2010 Winter Games. She came in 59th on Maxim’s Hot 100 list that year.
