As I predicted several weeks ago Lindsey Vonn decided not to compete in Sochi because her knee is “too unstable
.” Lindsey is following the same pattern established gymnast Shawn Johnson who led the world and the sponsors and especially her sponsors believe she would be competing in the Olympics and only pulled out when it was too late for anyone to do anything. Shawn was miraculously able to compete in the next season of Dancing With The Stars and I suspect Lindsey will do the same.
Lindsey competed in an event a few weeks ago and everyone was filled with high hopes but i was all just for show. She knew that if she took it easy she wouldn't do further damage to her knee and knew in advance she wasn't going to compete in Sochi but it kept sponsors on the hook for just a little longer and also kept those checks for her still coming.
