Lindsey Vonn Admitted to Hospital with IllnessBy Steve Casimiro on November 13th, 2012
Lindsey Vonn, America’s top ski racer, was admitted to a hospital in Vail yesterday with an undisclosed illness, and her representatives released no information about the nature or prognosis of the sickness. Vonn recently skipped a slalom in Finland to train for upcoming World Cups in Aspen, and she canceled an event last Friday in Vail because she was ailing. In recent interview with Eurosport, Vonn vowed that she will continue to fight to race against World Cup men, despite being rejected by FIS, ski racing’s governing body. “You know, I’m consulting with lawyers right now, I’m investing a lot of time and effort into this, and it has nothing to do with the media. I don’t need extra media attention! It has absolutely nothing to do with it. This is a personal goal of mine, and I want to see where I stand against the men. It’s the next level, you know. I have so much respect for the men, for what they are doing, how far they are pushing our sport and how strong they are, and how dynamic they ski. That’s the way I want to ski. I want to push myself to that level, and his is the next step for me.” Via Washington Post.
