Lindsey Vonn: Queen of the Mountain
By Brandi Waters
  

1     When it comes women's skiing, you are sure to hear the name of 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.
 
3     In 2006, Lindsey was one of the shining stars of the Women's Olympic Ski Team. Sadly, it was not meant to be. During a training run, Lindsey had an accident and crashed. Though she went to the hospital, she wasn't badly hurt. Lindsey decided to stay in the race. She did well, but she just wasn't as fast as she usually was. Lindsey left the 2006 Olympics without a medal.
