Lindsey Vonn intentionally slowed down during her downhill training run because she didn’t want her opponents to know how fast she was going

  • Lindsey Vonn completed her first two training runs for the downhill event on Sunday and Monday at the Winter Olympics.
  • After Vonn failed to medal in the super-G, her training times suggest she will be in a good position to rebound in the downhill.
  • Despite apparently intentionally slowing herself down, she still “won” the first training run and finished third in the second.
  • Vonn later said she was playing mind games with her opponents.

Lindsey Vonn came up short in her first Olympics event, but early signs suggest that won’t happen in the ladies’ downhill event, despite her own attempts to hide how fast she was really going.

Toward the end of Vonn’s second training run on Monday, she came out of her crouch and raised her arms, slowing herself down before the finish line.
