Rolex Hotness: Lindsey Vonn–Golden Girl & Greatest American Skier

Rolex Hotness: Lindsey Vonn
Golden Girl & Greatest American Female Skier
2010 Downhill Gold Medal Winner

Lindsey Vonn took first place and won the women's Downhill Olympics Gold Medal in Whistler, British Columbia at the 2010 winter olympics. At age 9, Lindsey Vonn met Olympic downhill silver medalist, Picabo Street in a Minnesota ski shop and at that moment she decided she wanted to be just like her one day, but Vonn achieved even more.

Yesterday, Vonn became the first American women to win a gold medal in the Olympic downhill. The fact she won is even more impressive when you realize she was suffering from a very painful recent accident that seriously injured her shin.

Lindsey is pictured above and below sporting her stainless steel Rolex Datejust on a Super Jubilee bracelet.
