Lovin’ Lind­sey

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - DAILYLINE -

“She’s had this amaz­ing, in­cred­i­ble, in­spir­ing ca­reer and she’s re­ally paved the way in U.S. ski rac­ing — and in ski rac­ing all over the world — but es­pe­cially in the U.S. for the next gen­er­a­tion to come up. We have a lot to be thank­ful for be­cause of that.” — Mikaela Shiffrin, U.S. skier

“That never-give-up at­ti­tude is some­thing that ev­ery­one can take away from. She has cre­ated that char­ac­ter and lived it. Those are life lessons that ev­ery­body can take. Give it your all and never give up. That’s a very strong legacy.” — Paul Kristofic, U.S. women’s coach

“Lind­sey al­ways had that ex­tra gear to put her on the edge where she ei­ther won or crashed hard. It’s sad to see all those crashes catch up with her and have to end with­out break­ing the record of wins, which we all know she was ca­pa­ble of. She made rac­ing ex­cit­ing.” Ju­lia Man­cuso, re­tired U.S. skier

“There are so many dif­fer­ent ways to mea­sure the best of all time and she ba­si­cally checks ev­ery cat­e­gory, win­ning or be­ing very strong in all five dis­ci­plines. Her wins speak for them­selves, her longevity, her per­son­al­ity and her ev­ery­thing.” — Bode Miller, re­tired U.S. skier

“You are a true cham­pion who never quit. Be well, Lind­sey, and know that you have given your fans, and most im­por­tantly, the next gen­er­a­tion of skiers, the gifts of per­se­ver­ance, ath­leti­cism, brav­ery, and fight­ing spirit! Here’s to the next chap­ter!” — Bil­lie Jean King, U.S. ten­nis great

“Not only the great­est skier of all time but one of the great­est ath­letes & olympians EVER!” — PK Sub­ban, Vonn’s boyfriend and de­fense­man for the NHL’S Nashville Preda­tors
