Lindsey Vonn Finds Success With New Coach

CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy (AP) — By any measure, Lindsey Vonn’s impending divorce is not affecting her on the slopes. If anything, it’s motivated her.

She has won six times and holds a commanding lead in the overall World Cup standings well before the season’s midpoint.

One key to Vonn’s success predates her November announcement that she was separating from husband and personal coach Thomas Vonn.

After Vonn lost last season’s overall title by three points to Germany’s Maria Hoefl-Riesch, she asked the U.S. team to assign her a personal coach who would travel with her and arrange training sessions as she moves back and forth between speed and tech events. That person was Jeff Fergus.

Says Vonn: “It’s great to have a coach that I can really rely on.”
