Don’t Underestimate the Older Athletes- Lindsey Vonn
Olympic gold medallist Lindsey Vonn is warning young athletes in next year’s Pyeongchang winter Olympic Games not to underestimate the older athletes.
Vonn, who won gold in the downhill skiing at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, broke a bone in her arm last year but is training hard for Pyeongchang. She missed the Olympic Games in Sochi through injury.
Acting as ambassador for the 2020 Youth Olympic Games, Vonn met younger athletes, aged 14 to 18, in Lausanne on Sunday (December 10).
She said that young competitors at the Olympic Games should know the older athletes knew how to handle the pressure and had more experience of the sport.
Vonn has four World Cup overall titles in addition to gold and bronze Olympic medals.
