Do your know who Thomas Vonn is? He is Lindsey Vonnâs husband, sure that was easy, but what other details do you know about him? What about what did he used to do? When did Thomas get married to Lindsey? Ah I bet that you don’t know, right? But we can tell you, just keep reading to know all the answers you are looking for, plus check out some of Thomas Vonnâs photos and video below.
Our friend Thomas was born on December 3, 1975 in Newburg, New York. Thomas went to Northwood School and graduated in 1994, he later went to St. Lawrence University in New York. Although Thomas is a retired Alpine Ski Racer now, when he was skating he sure had some interesting runs.
One of Thomas’ biggest achievements and perhaps one that most people remember was the one he did on February 16th, when he was in ninth place (Super G) at Snowbasin at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. Thomas finished in 1 minute, 23:22 seconds.
Thomas for sure has great stories about the slopes in Utah, but one of those that he must cherish is the one about that lovely girl named Lindsey Kildow, that beautiful girl he started dating after the 2002 Olympics. Thomas proposed on their New Yearâs Eve vacation in Austria.
So it was those same slopes that brought them together, were the ones chosen by Thomas and Lindsey to be their wedding background when they tied the knot on September 29, 2007 at the Silver Lake Lodge in Deer Valley, that is a ski resort in Wasatch Range , Summit, Utah. This same resort was chosen to host the 2002 Winter Olympics, see the connection now!
When Thomas retired he dedicated his time and skills to coach his wife Lindsey, now Lindsey has to call him as he calls himself âChief of Staffâ, since she was so fast he suggested to her to try Menâs Skis.
âIâm a very from-the-gut, spontaneous person, sometimes I do things without reason. And Thomas is very logical and planned. Heâs meticulous. The combination of those two personalities really work well for us. He finds all the details in the course, and I find the speed. Together we create a lot of success.â Lindsey said.
Thomas as Lindsey’s coach takes care of every detail in his wifeâs career and that included injuries. On more recent news we heard from Thomas about having a different opinion on what might have caused his wife to not win the Womanâs Super G on February 20th regarding Austrian coach Juergen Kriechbaum.
"I know for a fact that the Austrian course setter said that he was setting [the super-G course] against Lindsey, which is kind of silly, considering. I know he made a comment to some people that âwe studied all the tapes, and we found out that the one from Val d’Isere is the one she did worst in,’ which happened to be third place."
We donât know for sure if that was right, but Lindsey celebrated her bronze with the same joy as if she won the gold. Maybe they got the bronze that day, but Thomas Vonn has one of the most precious, beautiful and talented wife in the world and together they are one of the most beautiful stable couples on the slopes.
