"The answer is simple. I love what I do." -Lindsey Vonn

can't stop.
won't stop.

Born in small-town Minnesota, Lindsey Vonn's father put her on skis at age 2, and the 32-year-old has never looked back. Today, she is the most decorated female skier in history, she’s incredibly determined, hard-working, and resilient. She has an impressive five World Championship medals, 77 World Cup wins (the all-time record for a woman), and two Olympic medals: a bronze in Super G as well as a gold in downhill, both earned at the 2010 Vancouver Games. She's also the only American woman to win a gold medal in downhill skiing at the Olympics and the only American woman with four World Cup overall titles.

But all this success hasn't come without a lot of hard work—and some big setbacks. Vonn always pushes herself to her limit, and in February 2013, she crashed in the World Championships and required surgery to repair her torn anterior cruciate (ACL) and medial collateral ligaments (MCL). She tried to return to skiing at the end of that year, but re-injured her knee in a November crash, forcing her to withdraw from the 2014 Sochi Olympics. However, with a lot of grit and a commitment to her rehab, she recovered to complete a full season in 2015, when she won her 63rd Alpine skiing World Cup race, making her the winning-est female ski racer in history.
