While Lindsey Vonn has recently been in the headlines for tagging along with boyfriend Tiger Woods on the golf courses, she’s a talented skiier who is gearing up for the 2014 Winter Olympics i Sochi, Russia.
Vonn recently teamed up with sponsor Proctor & Gamble for their “Thank You, Mom” campaign, which included a four minute video that featured Vonn and was titled, “Raising an Olympian.”
During the 2012 London Olympics, P&G sponsored 28 Olympic athletes with their campaign. It looks like they have similar plans for Sochi and Vonn will be one of the many athletes to join forces with the award-winning campaign.
“My mom is really tough,” Vonn told USA Today. “I mean, she had a stroke when she gave birth to me. I’ve never once heard her complain about it. She always taught me, no matter what the situation, I can overcome it.”
That resilience has led to her being one of the top in her craft and an athlete that can always thrive in the face of diversity.
