Lindsey Vonn Named USOC SportsWoman Of The Year, So Here She Is In A Swimsuit

What? No, I see absolutely nothing wrong with honoring the remarkable accomplishments of the talented and lovely Lindsey Vonn – in particular her just being named USOC’s 2010 SportsWoman of the Year for the second consecutive season – by showcasing her forays into swimsuit modeling. Hey, she’s the one who gladly posed for these photos for last year’s SI Swimsuit Issue – and why shouldn’t she happily appear in a swimsuit? She looks outstanding. Further, I don’t come down to your blog and tell you how to go about celebrating great achievements of athletes, so there.

Vonn was understandably thrilled to have such an honor bestowed upon her two years in a row (via The Denver Post):

“I’m really excited to have won this award,” Vonn said in a conference call with Olympics reporters. “It means a lot to me to be recognized by the Olympic committee and by my peers. It’s a very special award. I’m very honored.”

Congratulations, Miss Vonn. Here’s to your continued success. And to further commemorate your achievements, here are some more swimsuit photos:

Oh, and in case you are wondering, figure skater Evan Lysacek won the USOC SportsMan of the Year award. Shockingly, I couldn’t find any photos of him in a swimsuit. Probably because I didn’t look for any. Yeah, I’m the worst.
