Lindsey Vonn not commenting on rumors she’s dating Tiger Woods

8 Comments

Rumors have recently been swirling about whether Tiger Woods and Olympic gold medal skier Lindsey Vonn are dating, with the words “might” and “possibly” being carefully attached to all stories about the world class athletes’ romantic encounters.

It’s especially strange since Tiger is also rumored to have proposed to former wife, Elin Nordegren, and last week deflected questions about his personal life during a tournament in Abu Dhabi.

Now Vonn is similarly deflecting the rumor in a statement released by her publicist.

“Lindsey is currently in the midst of the World Cup season in Europe. Her focus is solely on competing and on defending her titles and thus she will not participate in any speculation surrounding her personal life at this time.”

The pair was said to have been seen spending time together on the slopes in Austria back in November.

Great Britain track cyclists Jason Kenny and Laura Trott were married on Saturday, according to their social media. Together the couple has won 10 Olympic gold medals, including five at the 2016 Rio Games.

Trott referred to her wedding day as “the happiest day of my life” on Instagram.

“With all my family and close friends I married my best friend,” she wrote. “We had the most amazing day and I’m so pleased to finally be able call Jason my husband.”

The couple’s romance became public at the 2012 Olympics, when they were photographed kissing in the stands behind David Beckham at the women’s beach volleyball finals, according to Sky News. By December 2014, they were engaged. They plan on returning to training after the honeymoon.

Kenny owns seven Olympic medals, including six golds. He has helped Great Britain win team sprint gold medals at every Olympics since 2008.

Trott won gold medals in team pursuit and omnium in Rio, after claiming gold medals in the same events in London. She became the first British woman with four career Olympic gold medals.

Instead of asking for gifts, the couple set up a JustGiving page to raise money for Dementia UK. You can donate here.

Brad Snyder, who took home three swimming gold medals from the Rio Paralympic Games, threw the ceremonial first pitch at the Baltimore Orioles game on Sunday.

Snyder, who lost his vision while serving in the U.S. Navy in Afghanistan by stepping on an improvised explosive device, is a native of Baltimore.

He pitched alongside fellow Paralympic swimmer McKenzie Coan, who also claimed three gold medals in Rio.

The Orioles honored two more Paralympians, track and field sisters Hannah and Tatyana McFadden, before Saturday’s game.

Tatyana won six medals in Rio, which tied her with swimmer Jessica Long for the most for a U.S. athlete.
