Lindsey Vonn Responds to Trolls Gloating Over Her Non-Medal Olympics 2018 Race

Lindsey Vonn competed in the women’s Super-G at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics over the weekend and ended up coming in sixth place due to a tiny mistake she made going down hill.

After losing, Lindsey wrote, “Frustrating to be so close to the podium and to have made such a big mistake…but that’s ski racing. I’m proud of the way I skied and how I attacked the course. I gave it my all and came up short. That’s life. Now it’s on to the Downhill!”

Soon after, her mentions were flooded with people who were angry about her past quote about the President.

“[I] hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Lindsey said back in December on CNN. “I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony. And I want to represent our country well and I don’t think there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”

Later, Lindsey acknowledged the trolls after ESPN analyst and Olympic gold medal soccer player Julie Foudy tweeted a message of support.

“Not everyone has to like me but my family loves me and I sleep well at night. I work hard and try to be the best person I can be. If they don’t like me 🤷🏼‍♀️ their loss I guess… Thank you for the support,” Lindsey posted.

Lindsey will be competing in the women’s downhill on Tuesday.
