“Rog is the epitome of a true sportsman and champion in every sense of the word. We’ve been talking about skiing together for such a long time I wasn’t sure if it would happen…. But here we are; retired, skiing and enjoying life! Thanks for this memory Rog.” –Lindsey Vonn

A couple of retired top flight athletes met for a day of skiing in St. Moritz, Switzerland and I can’t decide who has the better tuck. American ski racing legend Lindsey Vonn shared some slope time with tennis star Roger Federer and it looks like they had a blast.

The pair’s athletic accomplishments could take up this entire page but to summarize Vonn retired in 2019 with 82 World Cup wins, four overall titles, and 11 Olympic medals. Federer stepped away from the court in 2022 after racking up 20 Grand Slam titles, six ATP Finals trophies, and a gold medal in doubles at the 2008 Olympics.

Lovely to see these longtime friends finally get to shred together. This is what Lindsey had to say about the day:

“Finally got to ski with my friend Roger… yes, Roger Federer! Have to take some time to really reflect on what it this means to me… I have admired Roger as an athlete, philanthropist and incredible champion for so many years. Normally, people you look up to always let you down in one way or another, but not Roger.

Rog is the epitome of a true sportsman and champion in every sense of the word. We’ve been talking about skiing together for such a long time I wasn’t sure if it would happen…. But here we are; retired, skiing and enjoying life! Thanks for this memory Rog.

You and your family are truly one of a kind and no matter what the statistics say (or Leo lol) you’re my forever GOAT, because it’s not about the stats but the impact you have made on me, and I’m just one of millions. Cheers my friend.
