Lindsey Vonn Dating, Boyfriend, With Tiger Woods, Net Worth, Bio, Age, Height

To say Lindsey Vonn is formidable is certainly putting it lightly. The lady is a member of the US Ski Team and an American World Cup alpine ski racer. She is one of the two female skiers to have won four World Cup overall championships – the other being Annemarie Moser-Pröll, a former Austrian World Cup alpine ski racer. Vonn won the first three World Cup overall championships consecutively in 2008, 2009 and 2010; she later won the fourth in 2012.

At the 2010 Winter Olympics, she received the gold medal in the downhill competition becoming the first American woman to do so. She has also won eight World Cup season titles in the downhill competition (which was record breaking), three titles in the combined and five titles in the Super G discipline.

More to that, Lindsey set a new record when she won her 20th World Cup crystal globe title, bypassing Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark who had won 19 Crystal Globe titles. This solidified her place as one the best skiers in the world.

The Olympic Skier is also one of six women who has won world cup races in all the disciplines of alpine skiing. There are five disciplines which include Super-G, Super Combined, Slalom, Giant Slalom and Downhill. She has also won 81 world cup races, setting an all-time women’s record. Currently, only Sweden’s Ingemar Stemark (who has 86 world cup wins) is ahead of her.

Undoubtedly, Lindsey is the most successful American Skier and one of the most successful in the world. As at the time of this report, she has two world championship gold medals, three world championship silver medals, Olympic gold medals, four overall world cup titles and Olympic bronze medals – she’s a force to reckoned with, isn’t she?

However, Vonn, as with most great athletes, has been occasionally sidelined by injuries she sustained over the years. She had to miss out on most of 2013 and 2014 seasons due to injuries. While she was in recovery though, she worked for NBC News as a correspondent for the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Thanks to her superwoman achievements, in 2010, she was awarded the United States Olympic Committee’s sportswoman of the year award, as well as the Laureus Sportswoman of the Year award.

She began to learn to ski at the age of two and then proceeded to join the famous Erich Sailer’s development program at Buck Hill. The program was produced by Kristina Koznick, a slalom racer.

Her father had dreams of being a professional skier and even won a national junior title. However, he injured his knee at 18 cutting his dreams shorts. This was probably why he pushed his daughter very hard.

Young Vonn was 3 years away from becoming a teenager when she met a popular Olympic gold medalist ski racer, Picabo Street who became her role model and hero. It is said that Street was highly impressed with Vonn at their meeting that she later became Lindsey’s mentor in Skiing. This led to Vonn commuting to Colorado to train before the family finally moved to Colorado.

Lindsey Von attended University of Missouri High School, an online programme for distance and independent study by the University of Missouri. She is of Irish, German, English, Norwegian and Welsh heritage.

Lindsey Vonn’s Boyfriend, Who’s She Dating?

From 2007-2011, Lindsey Kildow dated and later married Thomas Vonn, a fellow alpine ski racer. She met with Thomas when she was 16 and he was 25. Her father did not approve of the nine-year gap in the relationship which caused a strain in their relationship. The two got married in September 2007. While they were together, Thomas began managing her, handling her logistics and arranging her press events so she could focus on her game. In 2011, the two decided to go their separate ways and finalized their divorce in 2013.

Between 2012 to 2015, she was in a highly publicized relationship with Tiger Woods. In 2016, it was rumoured that she is in a relationship with Alexander Ludwig, The Hunger Games and Vikings actor. Later that year, it again circulated that J.J. Watt, an American Football player is her romantic partner. However, Vonn only confirmed Kenan Smith, an L.A. Rams assistant wide receivers coach as the love of her life in the said year.

Her Relationship with Tiger Woods

From 2012 till 2015, Lindsey Vonn was in a relationship with Tiger Woods. First, rumours began to circulate about the two at the end of 2012. They first met at a charity event in 2012; then later, when she suffered an injury at the Alpine Ski World Championships, the professional golfer sent his private jet to fly her back to the United States.

In 2013, while she was rehabilitating from her injury, she was spotted on Tiger Woods’ yacht. A few weeks later, the two confirmed their relationship through Facebook. However, by 2015, the two had separated as a result of their hectic work schedules which led to them not spending enough time together.

Net Worth

The Olympian has an impressive net worth of $6 million, considering the fact that she is one of the top athletes in the world, her wealth isn’t surprising. When you combine all her earnings and her endorsement deals, you will surely arrive at why she’s worth so much.
