I’ve admired Lindsey Vonn for a long time. First off, she’s a local girl. She spent the early years of her life in Minnesota and ski’d at Buck Hill in Burnsville. Since I’ve ski’d Buck Hill many times, I believe that makes me about .000000000010% as awesome as her since we’ve been on the same hills (not really.)
She is another example (Serena Williams, Ingrid Marcum, etc.) of a strong and beautiful female athlete. Her sport; however; is cray cray. I was a recreational downhill skiier so going AS FAST AS POSSIBLE was never my goal. Hers is and she is exceptional at it. So it was a little heart stopping this morning when this picture was on the news…
Vonn crashed during the Super G event in Austria, tearing her ACL and MCL and breaking her right tibia. She has a long recovery road ahead of her but that’s not the point. The point of this post is to remind you that a top American athlete has gone down and needs some strong thoughts from the world. So send them eh?
If you’re explaining, you’re losing.
