‘Lindsey Vonn: The Final Season’ Preview
Lindsey Vonn’s storied alpine skiing career ended on Feb. 10, when she took bronze in the downhill event at the world championships in Åre, Sweden.
“I’m going to put this next to the gold medals,” Vonn said, according to USA Today. “This, to me, was, an incredible race. I fought with my heart the whole way down.”
Nine days earlier, she announced she’d retire following the world championships, regardless of how she fared, citing mounting injuries. Vonn, who turned 35 in October, finished her career with three Olympic medals (one gold) and eight world championship medals (two gold).
“It’s been an amazing career, and to end on this note … means everything to me,” Vonn said, per USA Today.
She added: “I’ve accepted where I am in my life. I’m happy and I’m excited for the future. I’ve cried enough tears and now it’s just time to enjoy it.”
Teton Gravity Research, an extreme sports media company, was embedded with Vonn throughout the winter, including during her triumphant third-place finish.
“Lindsey Vonn is a global icon of transformative force,” HBO Sports executive vice president Peter Nelson said in a press release. “No skier, woman or man, has ever exerted her influence in sport and culture — ever transcended to her stature. There are a lot of athlete documentaries today, but this film, at once heartbreaking and inspiring, takes us places unseen with an elite athlete like Lindsey, revealing the sacrifice demanded of a champion confronting her human limits to end an unparalleled career.”
Lindsey Vonn: The Final Season was directed by Teton Gravity Research cofounders Steve Jones and Todd Jones. The brothers have directed numerous ski and snowboard documentaries, such as Under the Influence, One for the Road, and Far Out.
“Working with Peter Nelson, Rick Bernstein and the HBO Sports team has been a longtime goal of Teton Gravity Research,” the brothers stated in the press release. “This opportunity was made even more special by the cooperation and collaboration afforded to TGR by Lindsey and her team during what continued to become a complex and incredibly important year in her life and career. The unprecedented access that we were given absolutely has made this film what it is. During our time with Lindsey and the piece, this became something much larger than a chase for a record. The film reveals her sacrifices, her unrivalled commitment to success, and the personal highs and lows associated with her level of talent and drive.”
