She’s the girlfriend of Tiger Woods and rumored close pal of his ex Elin Nordegren, so it’s no surprise that Lindsey Vonn’s name is becoming more and more of a tabloid fixture.

Skiing superstar, Lindsey Vonn
Born Lindsey Kildow, the now 29 year old Minnesota native’s skiing ambitions started early. By aged two she was on her first skis and by six she was in her first competitive race.
