Winter Olympic gold medallist Lindsey Vonn has capped a sensational few weeks by having a ski run named after her. The US skier, who won gold in the Ladies' Downhill, and bronze in the Super G in Vancouver, will have a ski run at Vail ski resort named after her in recognition of her success.
The Colorado resort is where Vonn, the current World Cup leader, trains. The black diamond "International" trail, used for both the 1989 and 1999 FIS World Alpine Ski Championship, will be known as "Lindsey's", it was confirmed. Rob Katz, Vail Resorts Chairman and CEO, said: "Lindsey's on Vail Mountain is a perfect location for her namesake trail. "As a former race course and a groomed black diamond favourite for our guests, it is where future champions and everyday skiers alike can be inspired by Lindsey's success. "
