The beautiful Lindsey Vonn, former American skier and one of the most important, loved and paid athletes of American skiing was awarded by Sports Illustrated as the Activist Athlete. The four-time World Cup winner talked about Mikaela Shiffrin returned to victory for the first time in months, especially after the painful death of her father on February 2, 2020.
Vonn said she was sure that skiing will be fundamental for Mikaela: "She has a strong character. A few months have passed since her father's death and it takes time to process. I can only imagine what she is going through, I wish her the best."
Lindsey Vonn victim of body shaming
Lindsey Vonn victim of body shaming for photos from behind while walking on the beach, then one in a boat in a bikini, and one in profile still in a bathing suit. Through social media she said: "I've been posting some costume photos lately, which is scarier than it looks.
Even as an athlete there are ruthless comments and media stories that destroy my body and I admit that sometimes it hurts me. I am a normal person and sometimes I squirm, my stomach bends, cellulite manifests itself on the butt or I don't fill the upper part well of the costume.
But I always remember how my body helped me achieve amazing things in my life and I am proud of how strong I am. I'm not a size zero and that's fine for me. One thing I can swear to all of you is that I have never used Photoshop for my photos and I am proud to have never undergone any plastic surgery of any kind.
No botox, no fillers, no mini surgeries. Literally nothing. I'm 100% natural and 100% Lindsey. To those who feel down about their appearance, be strong, stay healthy and love yourself, whatever the haters say. Let's continue the positive culture of the body!" The ski champion was targeted after posting a series of costume shots on social media.
Her physique is beautiful and statuesque even with some imperfections, and the series of hateful comments, to which the sportswoman responded with the long post in which she talks about the relationship with her body and invites women to love themselves, are very embarassing.
