Lindsey Vonn is down but not out after losing in the Super-G race at the Winter Olympics. Her first Olympics moment in eight years saw her make a mistake in the upper half of the course, winding up in a tie for sixth place.
Vonn won a bronze in the event in 2010 at Vancouver, but sat out the Sochi games because of a knee injury. She is a four-time overall World Cup champion and will have another shot at a medal in the women’s downhill race later in the Olympics.
Vonn said she wouldn’t be visiting the White House if she won a gold medal in skiing. She was immediately trolled by supporters of President Donald Trump after the loss.
In a later tweet, Vonn responded: “It’s ok Julie. Not everyone has to like me but my family loves me and I sleep well at night. I work hard and try to be the best person I can be. If they don’t like me their loss I guess… Thank you for the support.”
