Lindsey Vonn hopes to become the winningest skier of all time.

TIME has listed Lindsey Vonn alongside such legends as Oprah Winfrey, Aretha Franklin, Hilary Clinton, and Serena Williams in a special project focussing on women who are changing the world.

Olympic Champion and winningest female alpine ski racer of all time Lindsey Vonn is featured in the TIME special project called “Firsts”—about women who are changing the world, alongside legends like Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Ellen DeGeneres, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Serena Williams, Aretha Franklin, Danica Patrick and Sheryl Sandberg.

As the piece introduces these incredible women, it reads, “She broke the glass ceiling.”

Vonn is listed as the first American woman to win an Olympic gold medal in downhill skiing, and in the piece, she talks about her heroine, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street, and how she waited three hours in line to get Street’s autograph in Minnesota. That meeting was a catalyst for Vonn, as Picabo was the reason she wanted to become a ski racer. She walked away with a purpose, and her father helped her create a plan to make that dream a reality.

  1. Peter, Your overrated! Vonn is the greatest female ski racer; and as a speed skier she is crazy too. Getting beat Ester in the Olympics shows you the athleticism of World Cup Snowboarders… borrowed gear from Shiffern… not like swap specials you ride… Get a life and wax your skis…

  2. Overrated Vonn… her stock took a big dip when she got beaten by a snowboarder… who was racing on BORROWED equipment!

Got an opinion? Let us know...
