STAMFORD, Conn. – February 4, 2019 – Lindsey Vonn, the winningest woman in alpine skiing World Cup history, will compete in the final two races of her career when she participates in the World Alpine Skiing Championships in Are, Sweden.

Vonn will compete in super-G on Tuesday, Feb. 5, live at 6:25 a.m. ET on NBCSN. Coverage will also stream live via authentication on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app. The super-G will be the final time Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin compete in the same race. They are the two most successful alpine skiers in U.S. history, with Vonn having won 82 career races and Shiffrin winning 56, including 13 this season.
The final race of Vonn’s illustrious career will come in the downhill on Sunday, Feb. 10, live at 6:25 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA. Streaming coverage will be available on OlympicChannel.com, the Olympic Channel app, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app. An encore will air later in the day on NBC at 3 p.m. ET and will stream on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.
Both events will also stream live on NBC Sports Gold’s “Snow Pass,” NBC Sports’ direct-to-consumer subscription package that gives fans access to live and on-demand domestic and international competitions of seven Olympic winter sports through April 2019, including all events of the World Alpine Skiing Championships through Sunday, Feb. 17.
Vonn is among the world’s most decorated skiers of all time. Over the course of her career, she has won 82 World Cup races, which is the most by a woman and second-most all time, behind only Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden. Participating in four Olympic games (2002, 2006, 2010, 2018), Vonn has amassed three Olympic medals, including gold in the 2010 Vancouver downhill, where she became the first American woman to win Olympic downhill gold. She is one of only seven women to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing – downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, and super combined. She is a four-time winner of the overall World Cup title and won a women’s record 16 career World Cup discipline titles. She will look to add to her seven world championships medals in Are.
