Lindsey Vonn has been named as one of six Colorado sports personalities to be inducted into the 2020 Colorado Sports Hall of Fame class, the Selection Committee announced on Tuesday.
The six are as follows:
- Lindsey Vonn
- Bob Gebhard (baseball)
- Alonzo Babers (Olympic track runner)
- George Gwozdecky (hockey)
- Terry Miller (football)
- Erin Popovich (paralympic swimmer)
Vonn, of Vail, is the winningest women’s World Cup skier of all time after claiming 82 titles. She is one of six women to have won World Cup races in downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, and super-combined. She retired in February, injuries bringing to an end her quest to be the most successful skier of all time, male or female.
“Thank you so much. Humbled to be honored among so many incredible Colorado athletes and sports heroes,” Lindsey Vonn wrote on Twitter.
Last month she announced she is selling her Vail, CO home to move to New Jersey with her soon-to-be husband P.K. Subban.
The 56th annual banquet will be April 23 in Denver. Tickets cost $200.
