Lindsey Vonn, exreina del esquí, recibió el Premio Princesa de Asturias en 2019
La exesquiadora norteamericana de 35 años es la sexta mujer que recibe el galardón instituido el año 1987. “Para mí el esquí no era un trabajo, pero al final tuve que tomar la decisión de retirarme porque arrastraba demasiadas lesiones, ligamentos, cruzado, mi cuerpo se estaba descomponiendo. Solo he esquiado dos veces desde la retirada. He pasado tanto tiempo entrenando que ahora tengo que descansar».
