Lindsey Vonn 2010

Lindsey Vonn Drawing

US Ski Team Alpine Racer. My sister Rebekah has been following, and gotten me interested in Lindsey's career as she trains for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Lindsey is already the most successful American woman skier in World Cup history. In 2009, Lindsey became the first American woman ever to win back to back World Cup Championships (2008,2009). She is second all time, only to Bode Miller, in American World Cup wins for American skiers male or female. She is also now the first female athlete that I have drawn.

Feb. 18,2010 Yesterday while I was skiing with my poppa, and son, Lindsey won the first ever American Olympic Gold in women's downhill.
