‘DWTS’ runner-up wants Lindsey Vonn for next season

Could we see recent double ESPY winner Lindsey Vonn ditch her ski boots for dance shoes on the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars?”

That’s the hope of 2010 Olympic figure skating champ Evan Lysacek, last season’s “DWTS” runner-up.

According to Hollywood Life, Lysacek was reportedly working at a recent ESPY after-party to convince the downhill skiing gold medalist to join the show next season, saying how perfect she would be for the contest.

No doubt Vonn’s combination of beauty and athleticism would be an excellent choice for the series, but given the skier’s competitive nature it’s tough to imagine her forgoing any training time a la ‘DWTS’ alum, snowboarder Louie Vito.

However, should Vonn decide to join the ranks of ‘DWTS’ cast members during this non-Olympic year, there is no doubts she would be one tough contestant to beat.
