Lindsey Vonn reacts to letting her father win in ski race

A Year In TIME
Lindsey Vonn enjoys a skiing season with her father

2010 Olympic gold medalist ski raxer Lindsey Vonn recently shared a video with her father Alan Kildow. They were skiing together and having a friendly competition with each other.

Vonn's father was a proficient ski racer himself and also won a junior national title. However, he had to give up his career in skiing due to an injury. Kildow was the one who encouraged her daughter to ski.

Their relationship became strained for some time when Vonn married her ex-husband Thomas Vonn. But they mended the relationship after Vonn's divorce.

Vonn took to Instagram to share the video with the caption:

"My Dad still thinks he’s faster….but I let him win 😉"

Lindsey Vonn was one of the most prolific alpine ski racers of her generation. Across her decade-long career, she bagged four World Championships along with the Olympic gold she won in Vancouver.

She retired from skiing back in 2019 after a couple of seasons filled with persistent injuries. However, she is frequently seen in the mountains even now doing what she loves. Not a professional anymore, Vonn still is very sharp with the turns and flips in the snow.

Recently, she was also seen skiing with the Swiss maestro and tennis legend, Roger Federer.
