NBC signs Lindsey Vonn for stateside Olympic role

NEW YORK (AP) - Ski champion Lindsey Vonn will be working for NBC during the Winter Olympics, although she won't be traveling to Sochi.

The network said Monday the gold medalist will report on the Olympics for the "Today" show and some NBC Sports broadcasts.

Vonn was expected to defend her championship at the Olympics, which begin next week. But a leg injury has kept her out of the competition and is preventing her from going to Russia.

NBC said Vonn will give "Today" show viewers an update on her rehabilitation and talk about how athletes prepare mentally and physically for the competition during the days leading to the games. She'll continue her broadcast work once the games start.

What a sorry bunch of idiots. Lindsey is a beautiful smart girl and doesn't deserve the raciest comments that have appeared here. Your moma did a poor job raising you. Who cares who she is dating, she is a terrific skier. Bunch of jealeous idiots.

I used to think this girl was smart and then I found out she started dating Tiger. Yea. Not as smart as I had thought.

And who says racism isn't alive and well in this country. I have no desire to date a person of another race but I will not have anything negative to say about someone who chooses to.
I'm sure your life is everything your parents hoped it would be, and that you can stand in judgment of someone else with a clear conscience.

She's "damaged goods" in many ways. Hey Lindsey, you hosed your ex-husband over pretty well. You should be hanging-out with fellow cheater Leanne Rimes, not wasting our time calling the Olympics. At least everyone knows that you're going to get a taste of your own medicine in the end (I'm really sure Tiger is over his serial cheating stuff nowadays!)

Not really a fan of hers, although she will be valuable in explaining the downhill skiing. Would rather see her face on the TV screen, than Lauer's, who, at the sight of him, is enough to hurl. He is already over there, smoozing with the athletes and celebs, yuk. Hopefully, NBC will not have Lauer monopolize the coverage for the Games.

Great hire NBC...I am going to be tuning in to watch, and also get Lindsey's perspective on the Winter Olympics. Lindsey will bump those ratings with her knowledge and with her looks!

She should just stay out of sight. Her personal life is none of our business. Aprove or Not ! I Personaly dont like it. Bottom Line She should of rehabed her knee completely. even if it ment missing the games this year. Look at Pecaboo street. Few skiers can recover to the level of excellence this woman has achieved. Its over now. she is just a BOO !

If you're trying to appear neutral your post makes no sense.
