Lindsey Vonn, 25, is a skiing girl from USA. She is the first American woman to win back-to-back overall World Cup championships, and even more – she did it twice in both 2008 and 2009. Lindsey have 31 World Cup wins in four disciplines, and 2 gold medals from World Championships, which makes her the most successful American woman skier in World Cup history.
At the 2006 Winter Olympics she was very unlucky and didn’t achieve anything significant. The Vancouver Olympics 2010 are her 3rd Winter Olympics, and Lindsey Vonn is one of the biggest hopes and favorite to win three gold medals. Unfortunately, earlier this week she revealed that she had a bruised shin, the most excruciating injury in her career. It will be very difficult for Lindsey, however, Vonn is expected to compete.

Luckily, the injury did not prevent Lindsey to pose for Sports Illustrated. Enjoy this beautiful photosession! ;-)
