I represent US, not Donald Trump: Skiist hottie Lindsey Vonn

I represent US, not Donald Trump: Skiist hottie Lindsey Vonn

In September, he rescinded an invitation to the White House to Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry after Curry said he didn't want the team to visit following its National Basketball Association championship. Now comes the part where Donald Trump says she was never invited anyway.

Ahead of February's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn stressed that she was representing her countrymen at the Games and not the president.

"But I have to win to be invited".

Trump's controversial presidency has seen him attack the National Football League for allowing players to protest over the racial inequality in the United States - even referring to demonstrating players as "sons of bitches".

The 2010 Olympic and eight-time World Cup downhill champion has been plagued with injuries in recent years, and missed Sochi 2014, but is fit again now after breaking her arm a year ago. "Actually I think every US team member is invited so no I won't go".

Vonn added, "I want to represent our country well. I don't think that there are a lot of people now in our government that do that", Vonn told CNN.

In an era where professional sports, politics and social awareness have become inextricable from each other, many sportspeople have hit back at Trump. Vonn will more than likely be seen as being disrespectful to Trump, when she is truly staying true to the true spirit of the games.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Wednesday it was an "open question" as to whether the country will send athletes to South Korea for the Winter Olympics amid tensions with the North. Vonn's invitation may be withdrawn before it is ever extended.
