Lindsey Vonn is an American Olympic skier who has won two Olympic medals, including one gold medal, with a net worth of $3 million. Her net worth is testament to her success in the highly competitive world of athletic skiing, as is her high name recognition relative to other Olympic skiers. Vonn's skiing career hit its first big break at the young age of 15, when she became the first American female to take home the first place trophy at Italy's Trofeo Topolino. From there, it was only a matter of time before Olympic stardom was hers. She made her Olympic debut in 2002, and since then she has proceeded to rack up the Olympic medals and other accolades. For instance, in 2010, she was named Sportswoman of the Year at the Laureus World Sports Awards. All in all, her Olympic showings combined with her victories at the skiing World Championships make her the most successful American skier in the entire history of the sport. As would be expected, this success has made her quite a celebrity by alpine skiing standards, appearing on late night TV talk shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman, among other public appearances.
