Lindsey Vonn, Husband to Divorce

by at . Comments

Olympic skiing gold medalist Lindsey Vonn is officially back on the market.

The 27-year-old has filed for divorce from Thomas Vonn, Yahoo! reports.

"This is an extremely difficult time in my personal life and I hope the media and my fans can respect my need for privacy on this matter," she said in a statement.

Thomas Vonn, a former Olympic skier himself, had been her chief adviser and scheduler. "[I will] continue to be coached by the U.S. ski team," Lindsey added.

Their relationship caused a rift between Lindsey and her father Alan Kildow, due in part to their nine-year age difference. Kildow, who was replaced by Thomas as her coach and mentor, was not invited to the couple's 2007 wedding.

Lindsey is one of five women to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing: Downhill, Super G, Giant Slalom, Slalom and Combined.

The Minnesotan won the gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Equally impressively, SI published these ludicrously hot Lindsey Vonn photos.
