American alpine ski racer, Lindsey Vonn, announced that she will be retiring at the end of the upcoming World Cup ski season.
The three-time Olympic medallist is four wins away from tying the all-time World Cup wins record, Lindsey says she’ll retire after the 2018-19 World Cup season – regardless of whether she surpasses Ingemar Stenmark’s record or not.
“If I get it, that would be a dream come true,” she told NBC. “If I don’t, I think I’ve had an incredibly successful career no matter what. I’m still the all-time winningest female skier.”
Vonn will begin her final season this December at Lake Louise, Alberta and plans to enter every downhill and super-G until she breaks the record.
