VAIL, Colorado – Vail’s Lindsey Vonn seems poised to be become America’s sweetheart.

The Vail resident will grace the cover of Sports Ilustrated’s Winter Olympic preview issue, and she is touted as “America’s Best Woman Skier Ever.”

Vonn appears to be ready to take the Vancouver Olympics by storm.

“Now I feel like I’m ready,” Vonn told The Associated Press after winning a super-G race at St. Moritz last weekend, her final World Cup event before the Feb. 12-28 Games. “I’m definitely in the best shape I’ve ever been in. Mentally and physically prepared.”

Vonn completed her 26-race, pre-Olympic program with nine wins, confident and injury-free.
