Vonn 'excited' to get healthy and ready for next year

Thursday, March 31 2016 by SNTV
  • Champion ski racer Lindsey Vonn spoke to SNTV on Tuesday (29th March) about her injury.

    SOUNDBITE (English): Lindsey Vonn, American Skiier:

    "I feel really good, thanks. I only have to have the brace for another two weeks so I'm almost done and I'm starting to train a little bit harder in the gym so I'm really excited to be healthy again and get ready for next year."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Lindsey Vonn, American Skiier:

    "I just, I love what I do. You know, I love ski racing, I love going fast, I love competing and you know of course I fall. I fall a lot - probably more than most - but I always pick myself back up because I love what I do. I never want to stop doing it and, of course, winning helps but ultimately I just want to ski fast."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Lindsey Vonn, American Skiier, on what golfers can expect at the Olympics:

    "It's going to be intense. I mean, any time there's a new event and anytime it's your first experience with the Olympics it's a little bit overwhelming at times but I think they're going to do great. I mean, I think they have a good plan for the preparation and it seems well organised so I think the golfers are going to have a great time and hopefully it's popular and it sticks around and it helps grow the sport as well."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Lindsey Vonn, American Skiier, on how skiing can grow further:

    "You know, I'm hoping that more of our ski races are shown on U.S. television - you know, it's primetime pretty much every weekend over in Europe and everyone loves it so I'm hoping that Americans will, you know, watch our sport a little bit more but you know obviously when we have strong athletes like we do right now it helps and going towards the Olympics we'll have some more media spotlight so we hope for more fans."
