Lindsey Vonn hit the slopes in a most patriotic and nerdy way. Wearing a Captain America-themed suit from the Marvel-themed performance line by Spyder, Vonn posted the following photos to social media with the quote, “Who said Captain America has to be a man anyways…”
This isn’t the first time the Marvel-themed outfits have been used by Olympians. In February of 2017, the U.S. Olympic ski team wore similar outfits. The women wore Captain Marvel while the men went with Captain America.
Vonn has been a World Cup Alpine Skier for 16 seasons with 78 wins and 4 overall championships. She’s also been to three Olympics, bringing home a Gold and Bronze medal so far.
Vonn was in the news lately for a different reason. On December 8th, 2017, Vonn said in an interview that while she is at the 2018 Winter Olympics, she feels that Olympians represent the people of the countries the participate for — not the leaders of those countries. She made it clear she would not be attending a White House ceremony if she wins a gold medal this year.
