“Lindsey Vonn won the bronze medal in the world championship downhill in the final race of her skiing career.

When the 34-year-old world-famous skier crossed the finish line after her run she had a big smile on her face, waved and bowed to the crowd.

“I laid it all on the line. That’s all I wanted to do today,” Vonn said, according to the Associated Press. “I have to admit I was a little bit nervous, probably the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life. I wanted to finish strong so badly.”

Vonn suffered a dramatic crash at her final Super-G event in Sweden last week. Earlier this month, the skier announced that she would be ending her 18-year career due to a number of serious injuries that have taken a toll on her body.”

Every time we win in this world, we loose for eternity.

Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said:

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.  

For whoever wants to save their life will lose it,

but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.  

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?

(Mark 8:34-36)

“”Thank You Lindsey: Forever A Star,”

read one sign positioned by the side of the course.

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training.

They do it to get a crown that will not last,

but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

(1 Corinthians 9:25)

““Honestly, retiring isn’t what upsets me. Retiring without reaching my goal is what will stay with me forever,” Vonn said.”

Ms. Lindsey Vonn broken but not unto repentance for a life of sin and self-indulgence.

Ms. Vonn has paid not only the price through the trashing of her body but will pay the price for wasting her soul. Sad, a wasted life of self-centered-glorification, so very sad.

Ms. Lindsey Vonn should listen for the call of God to repent, because one day, He shall call no more.

Ms. Lindsey Vonn should contemplate becoming a child of God, for if she ever thought about it, she would find that to be the toughest discission anyone ever makes. Unless, of course, it is the call of Cultural Christianity.

“After being unable to finish a race in Italy last month, Vonn, the women’s all-time leader in World Cup victories, realized it was time to call it quits, the pain in her knees too much to keep going.

“it’s been an emotional 2 weeks making the hardest decision of my life, but I have accepted that I cannot continue ski racing,” the 34-year-old wrote on Instagram. “I will compete at the World Championships in Downhill and SG [super-G] next week in Are, Sweden and they will be the final races of my career.

“My body is broken beyond repair and it isn’t letting me have the final season I dreamed of. My body is screaming at me to STOP and it’s time for me to listen.””

Or do you despise the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not realize that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But by your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. For he will repay according to each one’s deeds: to those who by patiently doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; while for those who are self-seeking and who obey not the truth but wickedness, there will be wrath and fury. (Romans 2:4-8)

“Lindsey Caroline Vonn (née Kildow /kɪldaʊ/; born October 18, 1984)[1] is an American World Cup alpine ski racer on the US Ski Team. She has won four World Cup overall championships—one of only two female skiers to do so, along with Annemarie Moser-Pröll—with three consecutive titles in 2008, 2009, and 2010,[2] plus another in 2012.[3] Vonn won the gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics, the first one for an American woman.[4] She has also won a record 8 World Cup season titles in the downhill discipline (2008–2013, 2015, 2016), 5 titles in super-G (2009–2012, 2015), and 3 consecutive titles in the combined (2010–2012). In 2016, she won her 20th World Cup crystal globe title, the overall record for men or women, surpassing Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden, who won 19 globes from 1975 to 1984. She has the second highest super ranking of all skiers, men or women.

Vonn is one of 6 women[5] to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing—downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom and super combined—and has won 82 World Cup races in her career through February 3, 2018. Her total of 82 World Cup victories is a women’s record, surpassing Annemarie Moser-Pröll of Austria who had held the record since the 1970s. Only Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden with 86 World Cup victories has more. With her Olympic gold and bronze medals, 2 World Championship gold medals in 2009 (plus three silver medals in 2007 and 2011), and 4 overall World Cup titles, Vonn is the most successful American ski racer and one of the greatest of all skiers.[6]

In 2010, Vonn received the Laureus Sportswoman of the Year award [7] and was the United States Olympic Committee’s sportswoman of the year.[8]

Injuries have caused Vonn to miss parts of several seasons, including almost all of the 2014 season and most of the 2013 season. While recovering from injury, she worked as a correspondent for NBC News covering the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. ”
