Lindsey Vonn Caps Career With Bronze Medal
The 34-year-old retired with a downhill bronze yesterday at the world championships in Sweden, ending her career as the most successful female skier in history. The win came just days after a crash during the super-G race left her with a bruised rib and a black eye. “Every athlete has their own obstacles,” she said, “and I faced mine head on today and I conquered them.”
Who’s the next Lindsey Vonn? Look out for American Mikaela Shiffrin: The 23-year-old is the sport’s next potential star after winning last week’s super-G.
