Lindsey Vonn out of the Sochi Olympics

Lake Louise Winner Lindsey Vonn
The Winner!

Lindsey Vonn too much too fast?
Lindsey Vonn not to Ski at the Sochi Games
Lindsey Vonn has decided not to ski at the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics, from The Washington Post:

Lindsey Vonn’s announcement that she is pulling out of the Sochi Olympics because of her injured right knee robbed the Winter Games of arguably its biggest star and left television partners and sponsors scrambling to answer the question: What marquee names actually will be competing for the United States?

I would answer Ted Ligety, Mikaela Shiffrin, and Julia Mancuso but none of those three are celebrities and of the three Ligety and Shiffrin are consistent winners. Of course, the question is which skier will take the place of Lindsey in Vogue and People Magazine.

We here at The Wisconsin Skier wish Lindsey well and hope she will be back soon to to cement her place in ski history!

Good Stuff!
