Sports Illustrated cover girl Lindsey Vonn is all the talk around water coolers today. Why? Because many deem the provocative pose she sports on the cover of the mag is too “sexually suggestive”. So let’s discuss. Read more plus photos and video below!
Seriously…I don’t get what all the brouhaha is about regarding the latest issue of Sports Illustrated. Cover girl Lindsey Vonn is merely photographed bent over, skiing downhill and looking fabulous! Get a grip people! That’s considered lewd or risque?
You can see the photo in question here.
With the tag line on the mag ‘America’s Best Woman Skier Ever’, she certainly lives up to that title. I mean c’mon – how many World Cup titles does she have under her belt? 30! Incredible for this 25-year-old hottie who hails from Minnesota and now makes her home in Vail, Colorado. And of course, she’s in the lead in super combined and overall World Cup points.
She is pretty much a shoo in for Olympic Gold, the question is, how many will she win? She is tapped to compete in the Downhill, Super Combined, Super-G, Slalom and Giant Slalom events. This is her third Olympic appearance, in 2002 she placed sixth in the Combined.
At the 2006 Olympics, while in practice just a day before the Downhill event, she took a nasty spill and suffered a bruised hip. She ended up in eighth place.
Lindsey had a bit of a scare in December, when she crashed during the Giant Slalom event at the World Cup in Lienz, Austria. She ended up with a bruised bone on her left arm. It was originally thought and widely reported that she had broken her arm, thus dashing any Olympic hopes for the beauty, but thank goodness that was not the case!
Undoubtedly she will be the one to watch at these Games. Can she pull off a Michael Phelps at the Vancouver Games? She may be able to grab gold in all the events she participates in, just like Phelps did in Beijing.
So with the Olympic opening ceremonies just a week away, we wish the Sports Illustrated cover girl, Lindsey Vonn, best of luck in all of her events! If you’re clamoring for more pictures of this beautiful blonde, check out an awesome slide show of her here, otherwise look below for more plus video!
