US Skier Doesn't Want to Represent Trump in Winter Olympics

'I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony.

"I want to represent our country well", Vonn explained.

Vonn added: "I want to represent our country well". Get the app and get the game. After missing out on the 2014 Winter Olympics due to caution following an ACL injury, Vonn is hoping to have a big comeback in the 2018 games.

Lindsey Vonn said she would represent the US - but not President Trump - during the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea.

Lynx forward Rebekkah Brunson said she will not go to the White House if the team is invited again after winning its fourth National Basketball Association title. "No, actually I think every USA team member is invited.so no, I won't go". "If I were invited to the White House, which I consider a great honor, I would not attend".

Vonn won a gold medal at the 2010 games in Vancouver in the downhill event, and a bronze in the Super-G. "So no, I won't go".

This year Trump has been embroiled in a controversy with the NFL and some of the NBA's top players - a spat with significant racial and cultural undertones - after he blasted prominent athletes for kneeling during the national anthem and refusing to come to the White House. But maybe he hasn't heard about her comments yet.
