Even though Lindsey Vonn didn’t win a medal during the 2018 Winter Olympics, she still keeps her head up. This year’s Olympic event in Pyeongchang, South Korea, is the fourth time she’s attended making her the most successful female alpine skier in history.
Yesterday, Saturday, February 17th, Lindsey finished in sixth place and failed to gain a medal during the women’s Super-G. It was her first competition at the games this year.
Her loss in South Korea appeared to please many Twitter trolls who took to the social media platform to condemn her for criticizing Donald Trump in the past.
Back in December of 2017, Lindsey told CNN she hoped the president would represent the people of the United States rather than himself. Additionally, she stated she would refuse an invitation to the White House even if she won at Pyeongchang.
Vonn took to Twitter today to say she’s happy if not every person on earth is pleased with her as a person. The only that matters is that her friends and family do.
The Olympic athlete went on to say there will be other opportunities in the future and looks forward to them. Vonn won a gold medal during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Colombia, but didn’t compete four years later in Russia because of an injury.
As for what’s next for the ex-girlfriend of Tiger Woods, she’s headed to the downhill competition for women’s skiing and is expected to also compete on Friday for the combined skiing contest. After her performance on Saturday, she told the world she was happy with her effort and gave it her all. “That’s life,” Vonn remarked.
