Ski Racer Vonn

Lindsey Vonn quotes: the Olympic skier’s attitude and insight.

“You are only limited to what you push yourself to, you know?  You can always get better.”

“Follow your dreams.  If you have a goal, and you want to achieve it, then work hard and do everything you can to get there, and one day it will come true.”

“If you work hard, it will pay off in the end.”

“In the end, it’s a mental maturity to let your best come out.”

“When you fall, get right back up.  Just keep going, keep pushing it.”

“Be proud of yourself when you do keep going!”

“Setbacks help you to concentrate.”

“Setbacks motivate me.”

“If you go around being afraid, you’re never going to enjoy life.  You have only one chance, so you’ve got to have fun.”

“Life changes very quickly in a very positive way if you let it.”

“Life’s short, you know?  Especially as an athlete.  Your career is very short, and you use the opportunities that you have because you’re not going to have them again.”

“My childhood dream was to win the Olympics, and I’ve done that.  Everything else is icing on the cake.”

“I’m proud to have competed for my country, I’m proud to have given it my all.  I’m proud to, hopefully, come away with a medal.”

“The Olympics are what I work for.  They’re why I spend so much time in the gym.”

“I get up early, but it doesn’t mean I like getting up early.”

“I want to win more than everyone else expects me to win.  The biggest competitor will be just myself, trying to stay relaxed and stay focused, because I have been waiting for these Olympics for so long and I want to win so badly that I need to be able to keep it together.”

“You have to be able to come back from those things, whether it’s people who put you down, or injuries, or setbacks.  That’s what the Olympics are about – being able to overcome those obstacles to be on the world’s greatest stage.”

“That is what bullies want you to do.  They want to defeat you and I am not defeated, I am the same.  I stand by my values and I am not going to back down.  I may not be as vocal right now with my opinions but that doesn’t mean they have won.  I haven’t changed my mind.”

“I never felt sidelined, I was supported by my friends, my family and my team.  I always knew I could do it.  I had confidence in myself.”

“I take risks – that’s my life on the slopes… and off.”

“I want to keep pushing the limits to see what’s possible.  That’s the nice thing about ski racing – no one is stopping you from going faster.”

“When you’re young, you develop ways to win, and you think they will always work, but then you get to the top, competing against the other top athletes, and sometimes things don’t work.”

“I always channeled what I felt emotionally into skiing – my insecurities, my anger, my disappointment.  Skiing was always my outlet, and it worked.”

“I think the most important thing in skiing is you have to be having fun.  If you’re having fun, then everything else will come easy to you.”

“I can’t picture myself being the people I always looked up to.”

“I never thought my face would be on the cover of a Red Bull six pack.”

“I want to be known for my athletic achievements, not my celebrity.”

“I enjoy just showing people other sides of me, especially everyone always sees me in my helmet and ski suit.  It’s nice to just show everyone me, just me in my everyday clothes or just me in high heels or just me not in my ski gear, basically.”

“I’m, like, twice the size of anyone, in both height and weight!  I’m five-foot-ten, but I’m definitely quite a bit heavier than everyone else.  I feel like the odd man out sometimes, but that’s even more reason to be confident, to show girls that you don’t have to be a size two to be beautiful.  Any size is beautiful as long as you’re confident in yourself.”

“I’ve been to a lot of photo shoots, and I see these girls that are just really thin.  They’re not healthy.  They don’t work out.”

“I always ate healthy, but it wasn’t scientific.  Now it’s a high-protein diet and no carbohydrates.  I have more consistent energy, and I don’t get tired after a meal.  It does take a very detailed meal plan.”

“So eat what your body wants, and try to be as active as you can.  Get into a routine, and the more you can stick to that routine, the easier it’ll be to stay fit and healthy.”

“It’s sexy and beautiful to be strong.”

“Just in general, staying healthy and active is important.”

“Records are the only thing that remain of an athlete, the only thing that people will remember.  If I want to ensure that people don’t forget me, I can only stop once I’ve set the bar as high as possible for anyone coming after me.”

“I want to show America who I am and inspire young kids.”

“I’m never tired of winning, and I’m never tired of skiing.”

“After ski racing, I’m not sure, but the only thing that I can say for certain is that I will be working more with my foundation in trying to inspire and empower the next generation of young girls in our country and possibly around the world.”

“Professional athletes, in general, have a voice, and I think that if it’s used in the right way, it can have a very positive impact.  That’s always what I try to do with social media and my stance on things.  All I can say is that I’ve always tried to empower the next generation and I will continue to do my best to do that.”

“I have a race routine.  I have a team of people helping me.  I have winning habits.  I believe in myself.  I have balance in my life.”

“I remember that if you stay upbeat, it can have a huge impact on those around you.”

“Of course, I have my moments.  But it’s usually easier and more fun to be positive than it is to be negative – and it has served me well.”

“I work hard and try to be the best person I can be.”

“I don’t give up easily.  I have plans to be around for a while.”

“I’m proud to have given it my all.”
