More about RISE by LINDSEY VONN:
The first ever memoir from the most decorated female skier of all time, revealing never-before-told stories of her life in the fast lane, her struggle with depression, and the bold decisions that helped her break down barriers on and off the slopes.
82 World Cup wins. 4 Overall World Cup titles. 3 Olympic medals. 8 World Championship Medals.
A fixture in the American sports landscape for almost twenty years, Lindsey Vonn is a legend. With a career that spanned a transformation in how America recognizes and celebrates female athletes, Vonn—who retired in 2019 as the most decorated American skier of all time—was in the vanguard of that change, helping blaze a trail for other world-class female athletes and reimagining what it meant to pursue speed at all costs.
In her new memoir, RISE, Vonn shares her incredible journey for the first time, going behind the scenes of an incredible life built around resilience and risk-taking. One of the most aggressive skiers ever, Vonn offers a fascinating glimpse into the relentless pursuit of her limits, a pursuit so focused on one-upping herself that she pushed her body past its breaking point as she achieved greatness. While this iconic grit and perseverance helped her battle a catalog of injuries, these injuries came with a cost—physical, of course, but also mental. Vonn opens up in RISE about her decades-long depression and struggles with self-confidence, discussing candidly how her mental health challenges influenced her career without defining her.
Through it all, she dissects the moments that sidelined her and how, each time, she clawed her way back using an iconoclastic approach rooted in hard work—pushing boundaries, challenging expectations, and speaking her mind, even when it got her into trouble. At once empowering and raw, RISE is an inspirational look at her hard-fought success as well as an honest appraisal of the sacrifices she made along the way—an emotional journey of winning that reveals how every victory comes with a price.
“My career has been about reaching the pinnacle of success on the slopes and persevering through some of the most devastating crashes until my body could do it no more. Through it all I was inspired, encouraged, and supported by my fans. This next chapter is all about the chapters in my memoir. I am digging deep and revealing stories I hope will resonate with my fans, about how I kept going up and down the mountains for what has been a most amazing and exhilarating run,” says Vonn.
