After Anti-Trump Protest Lindsey Vonn ‘Gives Out’ at St Moritz
American Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn, 33 anni, sustained an serious injury during the World Cup super-G race in St Moritz Saturday.
Ms. Vonn, a 4X World Cup Champion fell to the ground in pain as she slowed down after the finishing line and staggered away with what appeared to be a hip or back injury.
Ms. Vonn finished 24th.
She spent just under an hour in the medical treatment tent before being escorted to a waiting car and driven away.
An ambulance was called but she refused it.
With just 2 months to go before the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, Ms. Vonn said on Twitter that she had “an acute facet (spinal joint) dysfunction” but said she might still compete in Sunday’s race which is another Super G.
“I got compressed on the 6th gate and my back seized up. Rested and had a lot of therapy tonight. We will see how I feel tomorrow and then decide if I will race,” she said.
The US Team said Ms. Vonn “skied through pain but didn’t have power to push.”
Ms. Vonn, the downhill Gold Medalist in Vancouver in Y 2010, missed the 2014 games in Sochi because of a knee injury.
The Pyeongchang Olympics in South Korea are staged from 9-25 February 2018.
Last week Lindsey Vonn said in a TV interview that she will represent The American People, but not President Donald Trump, when she competes at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, SKorea.
That means she will not be representing the 63-M people who voted for him either.
The Big Q: Do we really need someone who is against our President, representing us anywhere officially?
She was asked how it would feel to represent the President and the country and this was her response: “Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president. I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony. I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”
Ms. Vonn was also asked if she would accept an invitation to visit the White House if she won a medal in Pyeongchang, to which she swiftly responded: “Absolutely not. No. But I have to win to be invited. No, actually I think every US Team member is invited, so, no I won’t go.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded last week. “Frankly those who do not want to represent our country says a lot more about their character than it does the president’s. The President is very proud to represent this country. He’s very proud to be an American.”
Well good, we are certain she will not get an invitation. It is unlikely she will win anyway. She has a lot of skiing issues and should concentrate on that instead of politics.
She appears to have anger issues. perhaps related to her ex Tiger Woods golfing with our President..
Have a terrific weekend.
