PARIS, FRANCE — Skiing super stars Lindsey Vonn and Maria Riesch have managed to develop a close friendship over the years in spite of being World Cup and Olympic rivals – but things have turned south between them with Vonn saying they are no longer on speaking terms.
Three time world champion Vonn revealed in her Facebook page over the weekend that the pair, who have notably spent several Christmas holidays together, have not spoken since early March.
According to Vonn: “I stopped talking to Maria after the first leg of the slalom at Spindleruv (Czech Republic on March 11-12). She had given a series of negative interviews about me and has since continued to talk in a negative fashion about me. I was very hurt … and honestly I don’t quite know where our friendship is right now.”
