LINDSAY VONN WINNING HER 64TH WORLD CUP VICTORY TODAY/AP PHOTO
“Lindsay Vonn: The Climb” aired on NBC today, remarkably timed with her 64th World Cup victory in the Giant Slalom in St. Moritz. This documentary follows her journey back from two devastating crashes, two knee surgeries, and highlights her relentless determination to get back on skis and on top of the podium. This makes all the more impressive her 63rd World Cup victory on Monday, which made her the winningest woman in ski racing history.
Produced by Red Bull Media House, in association with NFL Films and NBC Olympics, the film features never-before-seen footage and gives viewers an inside look at the past 22 months of Vonn’s life, from the hard-to-watch crashes to the operating room to the grueling rehab. With extraordinary access, there is even quite a lot of screentime with boyfriend Tiger Woods, who together with she shares the story of her fight to come back.
Says Vonn, “The last two years have been filled with some of the biggest ups and downs of my career, and I’m excited to share this story with my fans. This is the most inside look I’ve ever given to my world, and I hope it inspires others who are going through challenges to keep getting back up when they are down.” The next stop is the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Vail and Beaver Creek February 2-15, where Vonn will be competing in her hometown, providing her story with even more great sports drama.
Encore presentations of “Lindsey Vonn: The Climb” will air on NBC beginning in February and will be available digitally on Red Bull TV starting January 28.
