Lindsey Vonn clinched her eighth World Cup downhill title for a record 20th crystal globe in 2016 despite missing the end of the season to recover from a hairline fracture of her left knee.
Can Vonn become the GOAT? The 32-year-old is just 10 World Cup wins behind the all-time record of 86, held by Sweden's Ingemar Stenmark.
After just nine weeks out, she is ready to return to skiing after a broken arm and severe nerve damage in her right hand, at this weekend's World Cup races in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Austria.
She fractured her left knee in February 2016 in a crash during a World Cup super-G race in Soldeu, Andorra, but raced the combined event the next day before calling an end to her season.
Vonn bagged her 37th World Cup downhill win in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, in January 2016 to move ahead of Austrian Annemarie Moser-Proell's record. She added another victory a couple of weeks later in Garmisch, Germany.
Vonn's public profile went galactic when she dated star golfer Tiger Woods for two years from 2013-2015.
Golden girl Vonn won the Olympic downhill at Whistler in 2010 and added bronze in the super-G.
Vonn won the first of three straight World Cup overall titles in 2008 at the age of 23. She added a fourth in 2012, but is still chasing Moser-Proell's record of six overall crystal globes.
Lindsey Kildow -- as she was then before marrying fellow skier Thomas Vonn -- won her first World Cup race with victory in the downhill at Lake Louise, Canada, in 2004.
She made her Olympic debut in Salt Lake City in 2002 as a 17-year-old, finishing 32nd in slalom and sixth in the combined slalom/downhill event.
