Lindsey Vonn Final Career Race in Åre!

Renowned Lindsey Vonn claimed a bronze medal at the 2019 FIS World Championships this year, ending her career with one last podium to add to her tremendous accomplishments as a downhill skier. At 34 years old, this makes her the oldest female skiier to ever medal at the World Championships.

Vonn leaves behind the world of ski racing as one of the most accomplished athletes of all time. With eight World Championship medals, three Olympic medals, and 82 World Cup wins, the most of any female skier and just 4 behind all-time record holder Ingemar Stenmark, her long career leaves behind a legacy of success.

Vonn began skiing at age two. She burst into the international racing scene at age 14 when she became the first American female to capture gold in Italy’s Trofeo Topolino competition. Just three years later Vonn made her Olympic debut in the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, and from there it was nothing but up.

As Vonn steps away from competition, there is no doubt that she will be remembered as one of the most legendary skiers the world has ever seen.
