Lindsey Vonn Says Tiger Woods Helps Her Deal with Pressure

On Saturday, World Cup skier Lindsey Vonn took a break from cheering on her famous boyfriend at the President’s Cup in Dublin, Ohio to meet fans at Mt. Brighton in Michigan.

With multiple impressive wins under her belt, Vonn is considered one of the most successful ski racers in American history. She is one of only two female skiers to win four overall World Cup championships. Her gold medal win in downhill skiing at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver was the first ever for an American woman.

When she’s not competing, Vonn spends her time training at the gym and making public appearances such as the one she made on Saturday at Mt. Brighton. Before appearing at the public event, Vonn met privately with 50 youth ski racers from Mt. Brighton’s Team XLR8.

As often happens at such public appearances, the subject of professional golfer Tiger Woods came up. In March, Woods announced on Facebook that he and Vonn were dating. Vonn seemed more than willing to talk about her relationship with Woods:

“He understands pressure and he understands, obviously, competing at an extremely high level,” she said. “It’s difficult for me going into big events like the Olympics because there’s so much more pressure and media attention, and he gets that every single day. So it’s nice to be able to talk to him about it and we can relate to each other’s lives so well. So I think that’s one of the reasons why we work.”

Vonn is a representative for Vail Resorts, which recently purchased and is renovating Mt. Brighton. She also has endorsement deals with Under Armour, Head, Oakley and Red Bull.

Earlier this week, Vonn made headlines when she pulled a prank on Woods at the President’s Cup.

    I think Lindsey deserves someone better than Tiger . Let me put I am not at all racist but personally think no one should date outside their own race . He will cheat on her like he did his now ex wife . Just my opinion , that’s all .

      What is Tiger’s race? He’s part everything.

      Personally I don’t think that Tiger will cheat on any woman ever again. Pain and humiliation are great teachers!

    Wow, Derrick Walden just reminded me that ignorant people will always exist. I bet his significant other doesn’t feel that way. She just hasn’t told him.

  • htin

    I wish they both married, happy and their marriage last for ever. I don’t think Tiger has cheated any body, he just did not realize what he was doing, just having fun with some ladies without realizing the situation, that happens to a lot of people on different situations one way or the other. I am absolutely confident and believe that will never happen again. Only one sided and unfair people are Elin or what ever her name is, she never loves Tiger, but married the money not Tiger, and Steve, the Candie.

      Are you really that naive? Yeah, he didn’t know what he was doing was wrong. That’s why Tiger had his people sworn to secrecy? Wow, get out more, please?

    Derrick Walden obviously is racist. Htin is a woman hater. Doug is naive, he will be with other women again. They are single, no harm, no bad guys
