Lindsey Vonn's Mountain Blues
Not having the best of days on the mountain, reports tell that Lindsey Vonn is struggling through a strained relationship with teammate Julia Mancuso.
On Wednesday (February 24), the stunning skier wiped out on the women’s giant slalom, which led officials to cut Mancuso's run short before forcing her to do it all over again - which led to an 18th place finish.
Complaining, Julia tweeted: “that yellow flag in the GS was such… I just want to scream. I’m really miffed. Anyway, gotta take that energy and focus it for 2nd run.”
Not happy with her teammates complaints, Miss Vonn told press of the situation, "I honestly feel terrible for Julia. It's absolutely not what I wanted. I wanted to finish. I wanted to have a good run and by no means did I want that to happen to Julia. I try to support Julia as much as I support all the other teammates. I've been racing with Julia since I was a little kid and yes, we're competitors, but I always support her. It definitely has hurt me that she has said some negative things about me. All I can do is continue to support her the way I always have been and hope that she reciprocates that. I'm always proud that an American is doing well, and I was proud of her for being on the podium in downhill and super combined. It just bums me out."
