Lindsey vonn dating bode miller
Everyone gets hurt, but Vonn has been hurt more than most.
She was diminished at the 2006 Olympics by a crash in downhill training, but, in her words, “escaped from the hospital” to compete in both speed races, finishing seventh in Super G and eighth in downhill (remarkable in her condition).
And, another lesson: Vonn now always knows evacuation plans at training locations.She got her two medals in Vancouver—her gold medal downhill there is the most memorable run of her life. “I just sort of blacked out.” She wanted to win another one in Sochi.When she suffered her knee injury in ’13, she had won the World Cup overall points title in four of the five previous seasons.“We try to limit the number of consecutive days on snow,” says Knight, 45, a New Zealander who has worked with the U. We’ve gotten smarter.” Vonn has also implemented technical changes to accommodate a body with high mileage.The oldest Olympic Alpine medalist was Bode Miller, who was 36 when he took bronze in the Super G in Sochi; the oldest to win gold was Mario Matt of Austria, who was 34 when he won the slalom, also in Sochi.
At the bottom of the hill, Vonn grabbed the television camera with both hands and huffed: It was a moment that reminded the ski world that Vonn is still fast enough to win. She suffered nine major injuries and had five surgeries from 2006 to ’16.
