PHOTOS! Here are hot pictures of Lindsey Vonn who joined Jay Leno last night. Lindsey Vonn pics still heat up along with Sports Illustrated images. But what will happen with the Julia Mancuso dispute from the Olympics?
During the Olympics, Mancuso’s asserted that Vonn was taking away publicity from other athletes. And with earning only 1 gold and 1 bronze, did Vonn do that? Vonn even failed to finish three of her five races.
Vonn is said to guest star next on Law and Order. “This is a dream come true — both for the network and for Lindsey. Lindsey is absolutely crazy for Law & Order.”
Vonn says four medals was her goal, not the mere two she barely produced. In fact on Friday, Vonn failed to even stay in her event more than 20 seconds. She tells press:
“Five gold medals was never my goal. Of course, I wanted to try. And looking back, four medals were very realistic. But nothing goes the way you want it to. Nothing’s ever perfect.”
And yet, while the Julia Mancuso Lindsey Vonn dispute on the Hills of Vancouver sounds more fitting for a Lauren Conrad Heidi Montag dispute on the Hills of MTV, the Julia Mancuso Lindsey Vonn mad mouthing didn’t started today. It started three days before the Olympic games.
Everyone on the count of three — “meow”!
Even huhby / press savy Thomas Vonn is getting on the action. He says of the Mancuso dispute:
“It’s not like Lindsey slipped everybody $100 to write a story about her. She skied well coming in. When you ski well coming into an Olympics, you’re going to get more attention.”
Someone tell Thomas that Mancuso won silver in the women’s downhill on Tuesday and silver in the super-combined on Wednesday. She also won Gold in Turin.
Vonn is next set to guest star in Law and Order. Reports the Enquirer:
“The problem is that with all of her Olympic training and her World Cup racing schedule, there hasn’t been the time. But now producers are within days of securing a deal, and are hoping to film Lindsey in New York City. Execs at NBC and the producers at Law & Order would like Lindsey to play herself. They suggested she could be in an episode where a fellow female skier is found murdered, and Lindsey is interviewed by detectives. Lindsey says she would enjoy playing a victim. But a producer told her, ‘Can you imagine the hate mail we’d get for killing off golden girl Lindsey Vonn!’”
Mancuso’s Olympic bio read as follows:
“At 2006 Olympics at Turin, Italy, won gold in giant slalom, and finished 7th in downhill, 9th in combined and 11th in super-G; at 2002 Olympics at Salt Lake City, finished 13th in combined; set U.S. mark for Junior World Championships medals with eight before she was out of her teens, and started her 20s by capturing two World Championships medals and establishing record for most consecutive top-3 finishes at U.S. National Championships with 16; closed 2009 season with 10th U.S. Championship, tying Bode Miller for most all-time;
“Has made 260 World Cup starts, finishing on podium 19 times with four victories; has made 18 Europa Cup starts with one podium finish, 2nd in super-G in 2000; has 24 top-10 finishes at Nor-Am Cup with five wins, three in giant slalom; has five FIS Race victories, three in giant slalom and two in super-G; 2009 winter proved to be a challenge for Mancuso, who missed the World Cup podium for the first time since 2006 while dealing with a nagging back injury.”
At issue is a Vonn crash that cost Mancuso a medal. Vonn said of her crashing and is affect on Mancuso:
“I feel terrible for Julia. I wanted to finish, I wanted to have a good run, and by no means did I want that to happen to Julia. With the course conditions deteriorating the way they were, it was really difficult for her to come down with a fast time. I really hope she can ski the way she’s been skiing and have a good second run.”
“I try to support Julia as much as I support all the other teammates. I’ve been racing with Julia since I was a little kid. Yes, we’re competitors, but I always support her. It definitely has hurt me that she has said some negative things about me.”
