Vonn Races Away from Hubby-Coach

US Ski Team super-gal Lindsey Vonn files for divorce.


After four years of marriage, the best female skier in the world is ditching her husband. Lindsey and Thomas Vonn each filed for divorce last week, ending a high-profile relationship on the world cup circuit, with Thomas acting as all-around coach, trainer, confidant and sports-shrink as his wife became the most successful American racer ever—42 world cup wins—and the glamorous face of US skiing.

Lindsey reportedly will continue to race—and undoubtedly continue to win—as a Vonn. More from the NYT:
