Lindsey Vonn will be surrounded by bodyguards at the Alpine World Ski Championships as attention on her personal life intensifies.
An average of 30,000 fans per race are expected in the small Alpine village of Schladming, Austria, during the 13-day championships, which start Tuesday with the women’s super-G and end February 17.
‘There’s going to be an incredible amount of people here in Schladming, and it’s a very small space,’ Ms Vonn, 28, said Sunday at a news conference arranged by the U.S. team.
She said Red Bull, her sponsor, has hired security ‘to make sure I can get in and out and not have any difficulty, but I don’t expect there to be any problems. But it’s better to be safe than sorry.’
She was asked by a local TV reporter whether the golfer would be coming to watch her ski.
‘Oh, my god! I don’t know’ Ms Vonn replied. ‘You should ask him.’
The reporter then asked again, ‘in the name of Schladming.’
‘I have no idea. I have no idea,’ Ms Vonn said, repeating herself with a big smile and giggles.
Geez! Tiger sure love blondes!
