Lindsey Vonn, the most successful American ski racer of all-time, took her last World Cup run this weekend.
Vonn ends her career in ski racing with four World Cup overall championships, 82 World Cup victories, a gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics, 8 World Cup season titles in the downhill discipline, and 20 World Cup crystal globe titles.
She is one of only 6 women in the history of the sport to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing.
🐐+ 🐐…that’s a lot of success in the same place at the same time, Lindsey Vonn and Ingemar Stenmark! 1️⃣6️⃣8️⃣World Cup victories, to be exact. WOW.
Injuries have plagued Vonn over her time as a professional ski racer. She missed parts of several seasons due to injuries, including almost all of the 2014 season and most of the 2013 season.
Congratulations to our nationals most decorated ski racer! It was a blast watching you race Lindsey.
