Lindsey Vonn: The Final Season looks back on the four-time Olympian’s transcendent career and offers an intimate look at the final chapter of her skiing journey.
The documentary recounts Vonn’s life from her childhood in St. Paul, Minnesota and her later relocation to Vail, Colorado, where she fully realized her skiing potential. She made her Olympic debut at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City at only 17-years-old and later emerged as a rising star ahead of the 2006 Torino Games. In 2010, Vonn captured her first-ever Olympic downhill gold medal in Vancouver after recovering from a shin injury, but missed out on the 2014 Winter Games due to an ailing knee. She made a swift comeback at the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea where she captured her third Olympic medal. Her overwhelming success over the years catapulted her into a global icon off the slopes, regularly attending sports business conferences, partnering with charitable organizations, and participating in speaking engagements as well as sponsorship and partnership opportunities.
Over the course of her nearly two-decade career, Vonn attained the second-most victories on the World Cup Circuit; three Olympic medals, including gold at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver; and four overall World Cup titles. She graced the Olympic stage at the 2018 World Championships in Are, Sweden for the final time, where she earned the bronze.
Lindsey Vonn: The Final Season reveals the sacrifices and the unexpected twist and turns Vonn endured during the moments leading up to her last race. It captures her unwavering commitment to success while she confronts her human limits during one of the most critical moments in her life and career.
