2/4     Lindsey Vonn's Sports Illustrated cover sparks debate:
        I think Kristy Yamaguch's white mustache "Got Milk" picture was much
        more suggestive.
        \_ isn't this a fairly normal pose for a downhil skier?
           \_ Yes, they all like it doggy style.
              \_ Oops.  All that doggy-style sex has damaged her shin and may
                 cause her the race: (Yahoo Sports)
        \_ enh this is cooler:
           \_ He finally gets to go as part of the US team.
              \ He totally should.
        \_ Gold for the pretty blonde girl!
           \_ Not anymore, she hurt herself and is out of it.
              \_ She won the downhill. BTW, the silver medalist Julia Mancuso
                 is also pretty hot:
                 \_ Related question: This must be a Photoshop-edited picture,
                    but how exactly was it edited in Photoshop?  How do I use
                    Photoshop to turn a color picture into this kind of picture
                    that's between color and B&W?  Thanks.

        I'm surprised that they're all pretty small cupped women.

Lindsey Vonn is hoping the Sports Illustrated cover jinx doesn't cross international borders. America's great Winter Olympic hope is featured on the front of SI's Winter Olympic preview issue, which hit newsstands Wednesday. com: Vonn is first a GREAT athlete, but she also represents norm of feminine attractiveness. The combination of athleticism and attractiveness make Vonn the likely poster girl of the US Olympic Team, and the media hasn't disappointed in constructed her as such. Not to be left out, Sports Illustrated is featuring Vonn on their Feb. For those of you who follow SI Covers, know that female athletes are RARELY featured on the cover. Over the last 60 years researchers have shown that about 4% of all SI covers have portrayed women. When females are featured on the cover of SI, they are more likely than not to be in sexualized poses and not in action-and the most recent Vonn cover is no exception. the magazine rarely features women athletes on the cover (as evidenced by that statistic) and its annual swimsuit issue has been a focus of protests for decades. The pose at least resembles the tuck stance skiers like Vonn take when barrelling down the hill. It's not as if SI put her in a bikini in a Whistler hot tub. If she wins multiple golds in Vancouver, Vonn has the potential to become a major crossover star. She'd be like Michael Phelps, only with better looks and an actual personality. Landing on the SI cover is a good way for her to start the Vonn saturation campaign. The pose is suggestive, sure, but it's not objectifying. The headline reads "America's best woman skier ever", for Jean-Claude's sake! Why can't she be both the best skier in the world and really, really attractive too? Tom Brady's a great athlete and a handsome dude and I don't hear people whine when he's shirtless in GQ.

The gold-medal favorite in alpine skiing has not been on the slopes since then and says even putting on her boots is "excruciatingly painful." As of now she still plans to ski in each of her five races, but she may have to limit her practice runs because of the injury. She did not rule out dropping one or all of her training events if the shin condition fails to improve. Vonn sounds confident that she'll be able to compete in the races (after all, she nearly broke her back during a training run in Turin four years ago but still raced), but that pre-competition training might be compromised because, as of now, she's not even sure if she can get her boot on. This is a huge deal as skiers use these runs to familiarize themselves with the course. She would be at an enormous disadvantage without practice. In the interview with Lauer, Vonn looked and sounded completely sincere about her injury and Lauer remarked that he's never seen her so despondent. But one still has to question the timing of this announcement. If Vonn wanted to get reporters to stop asking about whether she can win five medals, she accomplished that. But now she'll have twice as many questions about her shin. This news is just as bad for NBC, which has built a huge marketing campaign around Vonn and her quest to become the Michael Phelps of Vancouver. Vonn will attempt to get back on the slopes Thursday, three days before she's scheduled to make her Vancouver debut in the super combined slalom. this is a 1 time in your life chance, drop a few vicodins and win the gold. i cut my leg so bad one time , not only i glued the gash closed, but then i went back to work a half hour later, finished the day and MANNED UP for the rest of the time it took to heal. dont be a dissapointment to americans, you were our chosen woman , our best representative. Report Abuse ok i just have to say -- there are more people from the US competing than just Vonn -- what's the deal here -- if we don't have Vonn than why bother watching -- what kind of attitude is that and what kind of message does that send to the other people who have worked just as hard to get there to compete. Report Abuse first she complained about the injected icy course. They are pushing her 15 minutes of fame ad giving he an out if she doesn't winn 5 golds. Another thins how do you hurt your shin if most skiers where those shin guards? Just a big, get the dramatic story and help me make more money scheme. Just like all the other pretty faces, if you can't play tennis you can always pose for a camera, or if you have a bum leg and can't ski. Report Abuse the fact she's in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition actually confirms she's not much more than a marketing tool.. yes, she's one of the better skiers in the world, but she's more marketable as a hot female athlete than a good athlete 19. She got injured before the last Olympics and now she is doing it again. The last one was legit, this one is just a ploy because she knows she can't live up to the hype. If she does well she overcomes great odds, if she fails she has an injury excuse. She wasted a spot on the US Team, when somebody else who wants to be out there would make all of America proud.
