Lindsey Vonn Talks About Her Late Grandfather

Lindsey Vonn Tearfully Talks About Late Grandfather, Saying, "I'm Going to Win For Him"

Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn is already emotional about representing Team USA at Pyeongchang. It's her fourth and final Olympic Games, and it's been eight years since she last competed in one. But when a CNN reporter asked about her grandfather, it was almost too much to bear.

Trying to keep it together, she wished the reporter hadn't brought up her late grandfather and said, "It's really hard for me not to cry. I want so badly to do well for him, and I miss him so much." She said she really hoped he'd be alive to see her. Lindsey tearfully went on, "I know he's watching, and I know that he's going to help me, and I'm going to win for him."
