Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn is done watching the boys from the sides of the slope.
She wants in.
Lindsey is petitioning to compete in the men’s World Cup downhill race in Lake Louise, Alberta, Nov. 24. The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association submitted a request on her behalf to the International Ski Federation (FIS) Tuesday.
She has a record 53 World Cup wins, and she’s won the women’s race in Lake Louise nine times. But, whether she’ll be able to go up against the men depends on more than her track record. FIS President Gian Franco Kasper said that while “everything is completely open,” he’s “not very optimistic.”
You’re fighting an uphill battle, Lindz.
What’s the matter, guys? Scared of getting chicked?
