Lindsey Vonn Tiger Woods


Lindsey Vonn opened up in an interview with USA Today about her relationship with Tiger Woods, saying the athletes love to compete against each other.

The Olympic skier shared, “We’re really competitive with everything, ping pong, tennis and whatever. I usually lose, which is really depressing.”

So, what can she beat him in, besides skiing?

“The hand slapping game,” Vonn told the paper, adding, “I’ve got better reflexes and better balance.”

She went on to say that she doesn’t care about people who criticize her for dating Woods, who was notoriously caught cheating on Elin Nordegren with a slew of women in 2009.

Vonn offered, “I’m the same person I was before. I’m an Olympic ski racer. I don’t read into what people say especially now,” she said.

“Whether people know me for my skiing or not is really irrelevant because people in ski racing know and respect me and that’s all that really matters,” noted Vonn.
