As the most successful American skier of all time, Lindsey Vonn is a woman of many accomplishments: she is one of only two female competitors in her sport to claim four overall World Cup championships (2008, 2009, 2010, 2012), one of six women to win World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing, and the first American woman to claim an Olympic gold medal in the downhill event (2010). Vonn also won an Olympic bronze medal in the Super-G event in Vancouver and a total of 59 World Cup races over her career.
