Downhill champ Lindsey Vonn had never won a World Cup race in the United States. Until yesterday.
But of course, that’s not the story.
The real story is that when she reached the podium, she did…well, this.
In fact, the Broncos’ quarterback’s brother was on hand for the race at Beaver Creek’s Birds of Prey, joining what the Denver Post labels Lindsey’s “Vonntourage,” and the World Cup champ made sure with Robby Tebow that the “Tebowing” celebration was OK.
“This is my first ski race,” Tebow said. “It was awesome. I told her I’m her good luck charm, because this is the first time she’s won in America.”
Clearly, divine intervention.
Vonn is in the midst of a divorce, but claimed she is not dating Tebow, who reportedly “spent a few minutes chatting with him in a VIP tent after her winner’s press conference.”
All Tebow, all the time.
Here’s her race. In case you’re not paying attention, the U.S. Ski Team is taking names later this season.
