Lindsey Vonn is an American alpine skiing World Cup athlete and regarded as one of the most successful skiers in the world. In 2013, her knee injury seriously affected her ability to ski, and caused her missing the entire ski season and the Sochi Winter Olympic Games. Although this hindered her career development, but she overcame the adversity with her courage and perseverance, the experience made her stronger. During the rehabilitation, she was given a Rolex watch, which reminds herself to never give up.
“My mother had a stroke when she was giving birth to me and was hovering over the edge of death. However, she never complained, she always has a strong attitude towards life. I think my mother can overcome such a pain, in contrast, my injury is very insignificant. “
I love skiing, because it can give me a different experience. I think all people should ski at least once in their life. I feel like I’m free at the top of the mountain and feel as if I am at home. In the course of the game, I will only go by instinct. I have always been fearless, which is really helpful to my career development as a professional skier. I am never afraid to challenge a higher speed, and have been challenging my limits all the time, I am fearless, because I would like to know how far I can go.
Although I have been hurt many times, my mother taught me never to give up. She had a stroke while giving birth to me and was hovering over the edge of death. However, she never complained, she has a strong attitude towards life. I think my mother can overcome this pain, in contrast, my injury is really insignificant, and frustration and injury will only make me stronger.
“I wear the watch to remind myself that I will never give up”
I got this Rolex after my second knee surgery, at that time I was at a low ebb of my life, and it had always been with me, allowing me to know that, I had overcome the difficulties and recovered, and successfully crossed the biggest obstacle of my life, and made me realize that I still had unfinished goals. I wear my watch to remind myself never to give up. Although I have achieved many goals in the past, there is still more to come in the future. And this watch reminds me to achieve my goals. My life has experienced a lot of ups and downs, but I always try my best, because these ups and downs are just like skiing, which is the wonder in life. What satisfies me is not only the victory, but also the course of the adventure. I am convinced that many things in life are meant to be and that there is an established arrangement, no matter what the process is, I will always arrive at where I should arrive. I think it is fate for me to devote myself to skiing now, and I will help other girls to realize their dreams when I do my best in skiing and achieve my goal.
