Less than a year ago,
Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn
tore the anterior cruciate, ligament
and medial collateral ligament
in her right knee and
fractured her tibia during a harrowing
ski accident in Schlamding, Austria.
Vonn was airlifted by helicopter to a hospital
Concerned she wouldn’t be ready
for the 2018 Winter Olympics,
the U.S. Olympic Committee
announced today her spot on
the U.S. Olympic Team would be
filled by Barack Obama.
U.S. Olympic officials said
Obama deserved the spot on the team
because no one has ever
taken a country downhill
faster than he has.
