Lindsey Vonn: Queen of the Mountain
By Brandi Waters
  

1     When it comes women's skiing, America's hopes for a gold medal lie on the shoulders of one woman. Her name is Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey grew up in Minnesota. She started skiing when she was only three years old! By the time she was seven, she started racing. At age nine, she was travelling to races all over the world. It wasn't long before Lindsey's family decided that the mountains of Colorado would make a better home for a talented skier than the hills of Minnesota.
 
2     Lindsey continued to improve. As a teenager, she won several high-profile events. In 2002, she joined the U.S. Olympic Ski Team. At only seventeen, she didn't garner a lot of attention. That quickly changed. Lindsey continued to train and tried to become faster and more consistent. As a result, she won several U.S. National Championships and medals at Junior World Championships and World Cup events.
