Lindsey Vonn, the most successful woman ski racer of all time and only five wins away from becoming the most successful ski racer of all time, says she plans to race at Lake Louise at the start of the 2019-20 World Cup Season – despite previously insisting this season would be her last.
The 34-year-old American had said in the summer that she intended the current 2018-19 season to be her last, but a minor injury has led to her having to miss the first speed races this winter, at Lake Louise, which she says is her favourite course and where she has won 18 of her 82 victories. So she plans to continue into the start of the 19-20 season to ensure she still has a final race and end her career there.
Lindsey Vonn needs four more wins to equal the 86 victories of the current all-time great Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark. She has said if that happens then great, but that she won’t keep racing if it doesn’t.
