Lindsey Vonn, the US Olympic gold medal-winning skier has recalled her marriage to Thomas Vonn.
The couple separated in November last year after four years of marriage.
More than a year later, Lindsey explained to People Mangazine:
“Everyone knows marriage is tough. But it just wasn’t working, and it was making me miserable. Nothing bad happened. But there was just unhappiness. That’s the only way I can even describe it – unhappy.”
Lyndsey added: “Divorce doesn’t fit my cookie-cutter image. But I got to the point where I said, I don’t care if I ever win another race; I just can’t live like this.” And went on to say “Everyone saw me on TV, or read articles, and it was all about my great marriage, the white picket fence, all this success and my perfect life. But behind the scenes, it was a struggle.”
Vonn won Gold in the woman’s downhill ski race at the Winter Olympics 2010.
