Lindsey Vonn is one of the most famous Alpine skiers of all time, and for good reason: her 77 World Cup victories are the most accomplished by a woman, and all of Ingemar Stenmark. the time record of 86 is within reach. But despite its success, it only has two Olympic medals, a figure that would like to grow this winter at the Olympic Games in PyeongChang
And if you do, do not expect her to celebrate with President Trump in the White House.

"I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president," he told CNN. "I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what it means to walk under our banner at the Opening Ceremonies, and, you know, I want to represent our country well and I do not think there are many people in our government to do that. "
When CNN's Christina Macfarlane asked her if she accepted an invitation to the White House if she wins an Olympic medal, Vonn replied: "Absolutely not, but I have to win to be invited like that, no, actually I think that All members of the US team are invited, so no, I will not go. "
In September, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry doubled his stance that he would not celebrate his team's title in the NBA with Trump in the White House. Trump responded by saying that Curry's invitation had been "withdrawn", and the Warriors as a team later voted against visiting the White House completely. Since Trump took office in January, members of the New England Patriots, Chicago Cubs and Clemson Tigers championship winners visited him in the White House, while the Warriors, NCAA North Carolina men's basketball champion and women's champion the NCAA South Carolina said they would. Do not make the trip.
Vonn has visited the White House in the past, once in 2010 (according to a Facebook post) and again in 2014 with his then boyfriend Tiger Woods to celebrate the winning team of the US Presidents Cup. UU
