Lindsey Vonn, a former Olympic champion, faced many difficulties after the end of her career, which she talked about in an interview with FOX news. Vonn received many negative comments, which is one of the main problems of social networks "A lot of people have said, 'You shouldn’t wear things like that.
It doesn’t look good on your body type.' Or ‘You’re too muscular for that.' I’m not going to say who, but I’ve had a lot of people say not such nice things to me," Vonn shared, as quoted by foxnews Although she ended her career, Vonn did not stop working on her body, and she continued to go to the gym and work on her physical and mental health.
"I used to do things that were so sport-specific, so I had to be bigger," Vonn said. "But everyone is like, 'Oh my God, you're in the best shape of your life.' It's like -- yes and no. I'm not training for my sport anymore, I am training to be lean and fit."
Although at first, it was hard for her to leave the sport, now she is used to it "[Retirement] was really hard for me to get over, but I am finally in a really good place, which I am thankful for," she continued.
"The more time away from the sport has been better for me." Vonn also appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine in 2013 "Vogue is the standard in fashion, and it wasn’t really open to athletes — it was strictly models — so I felt like it was a big step for me to be recognized in that way," she said.
Vonn plans to start his cosmetic line in 2022. However, the state of the pandemic can change a lot, so she still does not know what will happen. "Honestly, right now, these have been some of the scariest times, because I don’t know what is ahead," she said.
"As an athlete, you try to control as many variables as you can. And I can’t control any variables right now. I am just trying to stay in the moment and spend time with people I care about." "During this crazy time, I realized that working out helps me a lot mentally," Vonn noted.
"It was kind of what kept me on a good path and was something that motivated me every day." She added: "Sometimes you take things for granted and because I've done it my whole life, I kind of didn't value it as much as I do now."
