LINDSEY VONN admits it was a “miracle” she finished her career on a pair of skis despite a history of crashes and broken bones. The most successful female skier of all time allowed Eurosport TV cameras access-all-areas for her final appearance at the Alpine World Ski Championships in Are, Sweden, this month. Lindsey Vonn announced she will retire from skiing this year Lindsey Vonn was followed by Eurosport cameras at the Alpine World Ski Championships in Are, Sweden The documentary ‘Lindsey Vonn – Chasing History’, which is broadcast on Sunday evening, follows the legendary Vonn from the moment she announced on social media she would be retiring, through to her last run, including special moments spent with her coaching team and pet pooch Lucy. The American, who finished FOUR wins shy of Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 86 World Cup victories, showed her enduring class by winning a bronze medal in the downhill event. It was a courageous performance – banishing memories of her spectacular crash days earlier. Vonn, the 2010 Olympic downhill champion, feared she may never quit on a celebratory note after a nasty crash three months earlier in which he damaged his knee yet narrowly avoided surgery. The 34-year-old said: “To win a medal in my final race was so much more than I could have hoped for. The American skier used to date Tiger Woods After injurying her knee last November, Vonn underwent extensive rehab to ensure she could finish on her terms “The way the last six weeks have gone I really didn’t know what I was capable of. I had no expectations of trying to get a medal or perform well. Being able to close out the way I did was nothing short of a miracle. It feels like a win to me. “I knew it was time, this season was going to be my last season. But when I crashed in November and tore my ACL, that kind of changed everything. “The reason why I decided to retire is because I cannot ski the way I want to ski anymore. To consistently train and race. My knees are not able to handle it. “I have always tried to reach every goal I have set and so far I have been able to do that but 86 unfortunately is unattainable to me at this point. I can’t look back, though, on my career and be disappointed.” [article-rail-topic title=”Other sports” term_id=”7039″ posts_number=”6″ /] In her penultimate run, Vonn crashed out and sustained a black eye Once it was all over, Vonn enjoyed herself in Sweden, partying hard and long into the night Midway through her penultimate race, Vonn crashed out, smashing into the safety nets. Though she hurt her ribs and neck and sustained a black eye, the incident didn’t prevent her career from ending on a sour note. On the crash, Vonn said it felt like she had been “hit by an 18-wheeler (truck)” and her initial thought was: “I’m too old for this s***!” The former girlfriend of golf superstar Tiger Woods added: “It knocked the wind out of me. My (suit) airbag went off, which helped me when I went off into the fence. I hit my face with my arm. That gave me a black eye. Any time you run into the fence it never feels good – especially at 60mph!” Chasing History with Lindsey Vonn, a Eurosport original series, is broadcast on Sunday February 17 (8.15pm) on Eurosport 2
