About this title

Synopsis:

Lindsey Vonn is one of the most successful skiers of all time. She's won seventy World Cups and holds records for the most victories in both downhill and super-G skiing. She is also known for winning several times while injured and making amazing comebacks after injury. Lindsey Vonn is a tough-as-nails athlete, but her life outside of racing is just as fascinating. Learn all about how she made a name for herself on the slopes, why she likes to keep her workout routines secret, how she wound up with a pet cow, and much more.

Review:

"Though she's had her share of setbacks, superskier Lindsey Vonn's story is hardly that of an underdog. This inclusion in the Sports All-Stars series follows the life and career of this particularly hardworking athlete. With more than 70 World Cup victories to her name, Vonn has more wins than any other woman, and is close to breaking the all-time record. Her interest in skiing began when she was young, but she became a true competitor when a friendship and rivalry with fellow skier Julia Mancuso pushed her to begin training intensely. Vonn is known for her fearlessness and intensity--she achieves high speeds and has been injured multiple times, sometimes competing while injured. She's committed to helping young girls gain confidence, and this biography, which showcases her focus and determination, will hopefully help young readers do just that."--Booklist

--Journal

"Contemporary athletes representing the sports of soccer, skiing, football, swimming, basketball, and gymnastics are featured in this attractive series. In addition to career highlights, the texts also include information on the athletes' personal lives such as their hobbies and charitable interests. Upbeat and positive, if not overly inspiring, these volumes are more comprehensive than the usual fare for this age group. However, the texts, in some places, are already outdated; for example, Simone Biles references a planned 2016 tour for the U.S. Gymnastics team. VERDICT Solid additions to sports biography collections."--School Library Journal
