The decision, which follows many other athletes in the public spotlight, is a reflection of Vonn’s belief that “I want to represent our country well and I don’t think there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.” When asked by CNN’s Christina MacFarlane whether she would visit the White House given the opportunity she replied, “absolutely not.”

Earlier this year, Mikaela Shiffrin expressed a rather insightful perspective into how young girl’s should view our country and its president in the era of Donald Trump. Lindsey Vonn is the winningest female skier of all time and is considered by many as the best alpine ski racer behind Ingemar Stenmark.
