Lindsey Vonn won four Overall World Cups - one of only two female skiers to do so, with three consecutive titles in 2008, 2009, and 2010, plus another in 2012.
She also won a record eight World Cup Downhill titles and won the Downhill gold medal at the Winter Olympics in 2010, where she also won bronze in the Super-G, which led to her being given the Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year Award.
In 2016, Lindsey won her 20th World Cup title, the overall record for men or women, surpassing Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden, who won 19. She has the second highest super ranking of all skiers, men and women, behind only Stenmark. Her total of 82 World Cup race victories is a women's record. 
Injuries caused Vonn to miss parts of several seasons, including almost all of the 2014 season and most of the 2013 season.
