Lindsey Vonn

Last updated: 23:30 12/14/2017

As I head to France for the next races, I would like to share with you my reflections from the past few days. I've received a tremendous amount of feedback, both positive and negative, about my recent CNN interview. The point that I was trying to articulate is that all Olympic athletes represent their nation as a whole, and are not representatives of their government or any specific political figure or party. None of us work tirelessly for years on end to compete in the Olympics on behalf of Democrats or Republicans. The Olympics are a non-political event, a chance for everyone to put aside their differences and be on the same "team.". That does not mean that Olympic athletes don't have political opinions. As an American, I am extremely proud that our great nation was founded on principals and ideals where citizens can express our opinions openly. It is a privilege that some others around the world don't have. I am proud to be an American, and I want our country to continue to be a symbol of hope, compassion, inclusion and world unity. My travels around the world have recently made clear that this is no longer how people view the United States. You cannot pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV in Europe without noticing how people are questioning our direction. It seems to me that we must lead with understanding and strive for unity in our relationships throughout the world. As for myself, my recent comments opened up my eyes as to how divided we are right now. It is hurtful to read comments where people are hoping I break my neck or that God is punishing me for being "anti-Trump." We need to find a way to put aside our differences and find common ground in communicating. Is it wrong to hope for a better world? All of this is much bigger than skiing and the Olympics. I am going to take the next two months to focus on what I can do and right now that is competing for my country. In doing that, I will be hoping that we Americans can still be that "shining city on a hill."

Nick Maggio Your job is to ski and win and represent your country in the Olympics. Stay in your lane because you have not presented any evidence to convince the majority of Americans that you are capable of understanding the complexity of politics. I understand you ...
Ray Gilmore 1) As a retired service member, I support your right to speak your mind. Just as I support your critics right, to speak theirs. 2) As a parent, of young girls, who love skiing; I wish that you had been a better role model.... destroying a binding ...
Earl Zemba What a shame, we all have our opinions and it’s sad you used your status to promote yours. What’s next? Are you going to take a knee on the podium? I don’t wish you Ill but I would rather we won zero medals than have you win one. I didn’t care for Mr ...
Joe Mandichak Lindsey Vonn nice try but you said what you said and now had a few days to think about it and how to try and save face. Representing the president also is not representing government or even politics for that matter and it isn’t republican or democrat ...
Ted Roethlisberger My family appreciates you. Thanks for representing our country with dignity and poise. Best of luck, we’re rooting for you.

Driven by ambition and focused on speed. I block out the noise🎧 #AboveTheNoise Beats by Dre #ontheteam

Kyshia Brassington Lineberger Gosh Lindsey, i hate to inform you of this, but when you ski in the Olympics you are representing the country, the president and the people. Shame on you. I don’t want you representing the USA.
Jason Lathem Congratulations, you will be the first American that I will root against in the Olympics. Don't crash....karma is a bitch!
Christine Nettles My President is doing more for the United States than skiing. He is making a difference that will last way beyond the Olympics.maybe you will get that later when you understand economics.
David Smith You should write a book,”How to alienate half your fan base with one statement for no possible gain”. Skiers have never been known for their intellect,but Jesus you’re an idiot.
Jeffrey Wheatley She's wearing "Beats", so she can't hear any of this noise anyways. Do you want her to hear you? Voice your opinion to Red Bull. She will hear us all loud and clear when they drop her.

Raina Bright Bourne Whoa. These comments, though. This incredibly talented and strong athlete has every right to speak her opinion, just as you all do. And she speaks hers a helluva lot more intelligently than most of you. I can't even. "Next, you'll be sleeping with Colin ...
Guy R Blickenstaff Oh God, not another one. We the people don't support you then, just think how crappy you will feel when everyone turns there backs on you as you take the podium. Make you feel pretty bad huh, but gee you were sent there by the people...right? So was ...
Cindy Williams I voted for Trump so you are not representing me and I'm happy about that. Not wishing you injury just hope you lose.
Charlie Morris Such a dumb girl who would have thought,guess it's the first time I have heard her speak,now you can shut up,you will not win u has been.u fit the mold of tigers mistresses
