Lindsey Vonn is kickin’ arse. She’s not only the most successful female American skier in history. She’s also the first skier, male or female, to ever be named an Associated Press Athlete of the Year. Lindsey accepted the honors this past weekend, taking 77 of 175 votes submitted by news organizations that make up the AP’s membership, more than double what any other challenging female athlete totaled in the tally announced Saturday.
Tally one more Lake Louise win. Oakley’s Gold Medal Ski Star Lindsey Vonn smashed her way back to the top this past weekend, grabbing a resounding Super G win over German rival Maria Riesch and Julia Mancuso. The FIS World Cup event is no stranger to Lindsey, who’s racked up 14 podium finishes and eight wins at the contest over the past six years.
