As we ushered in the twenty-fourth Winter Olympic Games in February of 2022, we were thrilled to welcome an Olympic legend to our virtual stage – Lindsey Vonn. With 82 World Cup wins, 20 World Cup titles, 3 Olympic medals, and 7 World Championship medals, Lindsey Vonn holds the distinction of being the greatest female ski racer of all time. Known for her poise, perseverance and incredible athleticism, Vonn broke down barriers for athletes around the world and redefined what it meant to be a female ski champion.
As told in her new memoir RISE: My Story, Vonn shares the fascinating story of the sacrifices and bold decisions she had to make to go from her small Minnesota hometown where she started skiing at age 2 to a larger-than life career in the public eye. She talks about the highs and lows she has endured over the years from her stunning Olympic debut to the high-speed crashes. As she reports on this year’s Olympic Winter Games for NBC, Vonn continues to raise the profile of female skiers while also being an inspiration for other athletes who reject the limits and expectations others have placed on them. Vonn’s triumphant story will remind all of us to never give up on ourselves or our dreams.
