Lindsey Vonn, the most successful female U.S. skier of all time, has been inducted into the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Hall of Fame. 

Vonn, along with eight others, will be inducted on June 24, 2022, at the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs, CO.

In her career, Vonn competed in the 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2018 Olympics. She earned three medals including a gold in the downhill in 2010.

The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee have been honoring athletes since 1983, but this was only the 17th time they have added inductees. The class of 2022 is the first to be inducted since 2019. Before that, the last class was in 2012.

Notable skiers that were not selected were Bode Miller and Julia Mancuso. They were among this year’s finalists but were not selected in the final voting.
