Lindsey Vonn 6th Place Finish In First Olympic Ski Event; Twitter Not Kind!

I haven’t watched one minute of the Olympics in Korea this year, mainly because I am not interested.

Vonn made her Winter Olympics debut, and it went poorly. The U.S. skier’s first even was the super-G event. Vonn is one of the older skiers at the Olympics this time around, 33, and she was the first skier to go through the course.

Viewing the video below, she skidded pretty badly toward the end of the course and cost herself some precious time. As you can see in the video below, she mouthed “I tried” after she finished.

Back in December, Vonn went viral on social media back when she commented on the possibility of visiting the White House after the games.

“I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony,” Vonn told CNN. “I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”

Vonn said she would not accept an invitation to the White House.

“Absolutely not. Nope. I have to win to be invited so – no, actually I think every US team member is invited. So, no, I won’t go.”

Vonn did have her supporters, however:

Either way Julie, Lindsey set her course with her own words. Just because people are responding to her doesn’t make them bad. Her initial words against President Trump could be tagged with the same “sickened and disgusting.”

Americans need an alternative to the mainstream media. That’s why we exist. Donate $10 today and help us continue to fight!

She didn’t want to visit the WH and right now she’s making it possible she will not need to pack her bags.

SOUND OFF in the comment section what you thought of this race and is this part of that #TrumpCurse?
