World Champion ski racer, Lindsey Vonn, is consulting her lawyers over her desire to compete against the men in a downhill race in Lake Louise, Canada. As reported earlier (Lindsey Vonn Wants To Race Against The Men and Ski Federation Rejects Lindsey Vonn’s Request to Ski Against the Men) Lindsey Vonn’s goal of to be the first women ever to compete in a mens World Cup downhill event suffered a major set back when the Ski Federation rejected her formally request last week.
“I was very disappointed with that decision and I’m not going to stop trying. It’s something that I’m going to continue to push for. I’m just trying to explore right now how I can continue this effort. If I need to go to court or if I need to file some sort of petition. You know, I’m not exactly sure right now, but I’m talking with some people and trying to figure out what I can do,” she said.
Vonn is denying that this is a publicity stunt saying, “I’m consulting with lawyers right now, I’m investing a lot of time and effort into this, and it has nothing to do with the media. I don’t need extra media attention! It has absolutely nothing to do with it. This is a personal goal of mine, and I want to see where I stand against the men.”
