In Case You Missed It: Lindsey Vonn on the Late Show with David Letterman

World Cup Sensation and Olympic Champion Lindsey Vonn flew back to the states from Germany to pay a visit to David Letterman at the Late Show in New York City. She came out looking absolutely stunning in a red satin dress, and even showed a little leg — it was clear to see that Letterman was having a tough time not getting tongue-tied!

They covered her streak of huge success in this year’s World Cup Circuit, covered the difference of between downhill, Super G, Giant Slalom, and Slalom. Dave was amazed upon hearing about the 90 mph speeds reached in downhill, and touched upon the topic of ski injuries and its effect on an athlete’s psyche. For a talk show host, Dave was asking some extremely astute questions (I suppose that is his job), and did a great job at seizing this opportunity to educate the American audiences on the international competitive skiing scene.
