  • Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn Burned President Trump With Just 13 Words

USA skiing star Lindsey Vonn said Thursday she would not go to the White House for a post-Winter Olympics reception, aligning herself with other athletes who have protested against President Donald Trump.

Traditionally, members of the United States Olympic team are invited to the White House following the Games in celebration of their accomplishments.

"Absolutely not. No", Vonn said.

Said Vonn: "I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president".

"No. But I have to win to be invited", she said. It's clear that he wouldn't get 100% attendance.

One such game is Overwatch , which will host its Winter Wonderland event for the second year in the row beginning next week. Essentially, it boils down to 5 Mei players taking on resident big lad Winston, who also happens to be player controlled.


Vonn added: "I want to represent our country well". The two-time Olympic medalist recently voiced her unwillingness to compete on behalf of the president while training for the Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

Although the 33-year-old Olympian didn't go into detail about why she doesn't want to represent Trump when competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics this February, it appears she disagrees with some of his policies. She is a four-time overall World Cup champion and one of six women to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing: downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, and super combined.

"I have no interest in going". She missed the 2014 Sochi Games after injuring her right knee.

Earlier this year, many athletes on the New England Patriots and Golden State Warriors refused to take a trip to the White House after winning championships, because they were opposed to who was in the White House. Trump wrote on Twitter in September.

A number of athletes have been critical of Trump, including National Basketball Association stars LeBron James and Steph Curry.
