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

"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.

Before hanging up her skis, Vonn is also hoping to break the all-time record for World Cup victories.

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.

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".
