Hey Look, Lindsey Vonn ‘Tebowed’ After Winning World Cup Super-G (Photo)
Well, isn’t that special? Competing in a World Cup race for the first time near her adopted hometown of Vail in Beaver Creek, Colo., Lindsey Vonn came away the winner of the Super-G event. And of course, as a nod to the patron saint of Colorado, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, Vonn “Tebowed” on the winner’s podium after the race.
What made the move especially poignant was the fact that Robby Tebow, Tim’s brother, was a member of the skier’s so-called “Vonntourage” — they reportedly met at the ESPY Awards — lending credence to the unsubstantiated rumors swirling about that Vonn might be dating Tim Tebow or Robby Tebow (Vonn recently filed for divorce from her Thomas Vonn after four years of marriage).
Whether or not Vonn is romantically linked to one of the Tebow bros notwithstanding — the Olympics star requested permission from Robby Tebow to break out the Tebowing maneuver prior to implementing it:
“I asked him if Tim would be upset if I did it,” Vonn said. “I said that if I won in Colorado, I would do it, ‘Go Broncos.’ And I did it. Gotta represent.”
Gotta represent, indeed.
