Lindsey Vonn - American World Cup Alpine Ski Racer https://youtu.be/0Ixjj86FHKw Born Lindsey Caroline Kildow in Saint Paul, Minnesota, she is the daughter of Linda Anne (née Krohn) and Alan Lee Kildow. She grew up in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, in Burnsville, Minnesota. Vonn was on skis at age two, before moving into Erich Sailer's renowned development program at Burnsville's Buck Hill, which also produced slalom racer Kristina Koznick. Her father, who had won a national junior title before a knee injury at 18, "pushed" her very hard, according to Sailer. When Vonn was 10 years old, she met Olympic gold medalist ski racer Picabo Street, whom she considers her heroine and role model. Their meeting made such an impression on Street that she remembered the meeting and later served as Vonn's mentor in skiing. Vonn commuted to Colorado to train for several years before her family moved to Vail, Colorado, in the late 1990s. Vonn attended University of Missouri High School, an online program through the university's Center for Distance and Independent Study.

"After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship," the Alpine skier said in a Facebook post. "I will always cherish the memories that we've created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart." Woods confirmed the news in a statement similar to Vonn's on his website. "I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I'll always cherish our time together. She has been amazing with Sam and Charlie and my entire family," he said. "Unfortunately, we lead very hectic lives and are both competing in demanding sports. It's difficult to spend time together." And, just like that, the couple ended their relationship in the same awkward manner they made it public: on Facebook. The couple met at a charity event in 2012 and "immediately clicked," Vonn told Vogue in 2013. Woods had divorced ex-wife Elin Nordegren, with whom he has two children, in 2010, and Vonn divorced her ex-husband, skier Thomas Vonn in 2012.
