Lindsey Vonn (née Kildow, born October 18, 1984) is an American alpine ski racer and Olympic gold medalist. She won the gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in downhill, the first American woman to do so.
She is also the first American woman to win back-to-back overall World Cup championships, in 2008 and 2009, and won World Cup discipline championships in downhill (also back-to-back) and Super G (the first American woman to do so).
With her Olympic gold medal, 31 World Cup wins in four disciplines (downhill, Super G, slalom and super combined) and two World Championship gold medals (plus two World Championship silver medals), she has become the most successful American woman skier in history. *Credits Wikipedia

I got the gold medal that I came here to get. And now I’m just going to attack every day, with no regrets and no fear … And, I mean, I’m just happy with one. Anything else from here on out is a bonus.
