Lindsey Vonn, the US Olympic skiing champ and former Tiger Woods girlfriend, says she’s swearing off men for a while.
“I’m single, and I probably will be for a while,” she told Health magazine in its December issue, which hits newsstands on Friday.
“I think this is just a good time for me to focus on myself,” added the 31-year-old cover girl. “I’m not ready to have a family yet, but I will be at some point.”

Vonn and Woods for three years before breaking up in May.
“I think it’s just given me more time to spend on myself,” Vonn said of the breakup. “You really look at yourself and figure out what makes you happy, and you also have a lot more free time.”
Vonn said the primary reason for the hiatus from men is her desire to devote her time to training.
“I’ve been working really hard,” Vonn said. “I got a new nutritionist, and I’m just doing everything I can to be in shape for this season. And it’s paying off.”
Vonn added that people need to just chill when it comes to rumors about her love life.
“It’s almost comical because it’s not even my life,” the star athlete said. “Everyone assumes that it’s fact, and it’s not, so I just have to laugh. I mean, if you take all that stuff seriously, then you’ll drive yourself crazy.”

Vonn made headlines over the weekend when she shared a rather graphic photo of her right thumb that ytches after she tried to break up her two dogs as the fought over a frisbee.
“So the story is that my dogs got rowdy fighting over a dang Frisbee and I tried to break it up but got bit instead. Fun weekend,” Vonn tweeted on Saturday along with a photo of the injury.
“I just decided to do Jimmy Fallon for a belated Halloween outfit,” she later joked in a video posted to Instagram. “Nailed it! I win!”
