Lindsey Vonn “Golden Girl”

Lindsey Vonn has become the golden girl of the Winter Olympics as she dominated the women’s downhill at Whistler Creek on Wednesday. She was threatened by a shin injury during build-up to the Vancouver games but showed no signs of ill effects with a blistering run of one minute 44.19 seconds to win her first Olympic medal of any color. The Minnesotan, the reigning world champion in the discipline and totally dominant on the World Cup circuit in the build-up to Games, decimated the time set by fellow American Julia Mancuso by over half a second from start number 16.Vonn is also the first American woman to win Olympic gold in a speed event since Picabo Street won gold in the super-G at Nagano in 1998.
