U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn has been a hot topic in the sports world over the past few days.
Vonn, who has gained notoriety as one of the world’s best female skiers, bruised her right shin during practice last week.
Vonn’s bruised shin has gotten more publicity than Dwight Freeney’s injured ankle did prior to last week’s Super Bowl showdown.
Football is undeniably more popular than skiing or even the Winter Olympics, but Vonn hasn’t garnered this much attention solely on her ability to ski downhill.
Call me sexist, but if she couldn’t fill out a two-piece, oh so well, most of America, including sports lovers, would still be wondering who Lindsey Vonn is.
While some will check her out on the slopes in the upcoming weeks in the Winter Olympics, one of her greatest works can be seen on the cover of SI and she and some of her Olympic teammates are also featured in the SI’s swimsuit issue.
Even if she never wins an Olympic medal, for obvious reasons, in my opinion, she’s the greatest American female skier of all-time.
