A key part of every relationship lies in acknowledging each other’s talents, and it becomes even more important when you are a sports couple, like Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods.
Even though it was a thing of the past, the two of them had a great mutual admiration for one another. In fact, the golf legend once even pointed out that skiing is way scarier than golf.
It’s been a long time since Lindsey Vonn split up with Tiger Woods. Though they couldn’t continue their relationship any further, they had a great time together. After dating for three years, the couple broke up in 2015. However, as per Lindsey they are still on speaking terms and are indeed very good friends.
Tiger Woods applauds Lindsey Vonn for being a skier
Skiing is indeed a very risky sport. Sometimes the accident in skiing might be career-ending and sometimes even may be fatal. In the light of the same, golfer Tiger Woods believes what Lindsey does is a very brave thing. He said, “I’m not going to die in my sport. What they [Alpine skiers] do and the surfaces they’re on, injected snow, it’s just scary how fast it is and how dangerous and how much focus you have to bring to the table.”
Elaborating the comparison further, Tiger added, “besides that, our sport is about playing a physical chess match that takes time and lots and lots of patience, whereas theirs is just pure aggression.”
He also applauded Lindsey for making a comeback after an injury and pointed out that she is really challenging her physical limits.
Lindsey always wanted to prove hater’s wrong
We all have something in our lives that fuels our purpose. For Lindsey, it was proving people wrong. People who didn’t believe in her and those who constantly criticized her for being who she was. Well, she certainly was successful in shutting each mouth that talked negatively about her through her glorious success.
Now that the skier has ten times more admirers than she has haters, it hardly matters. Though she’ll always carry that hate as a lesson, paving way for the future as bright as the sun.
