There is still a question over whether American athletes will compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics

There is still a question over whether American athletes will compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics

"I don't think that there are a lot of people now in our government that do that", Vonn told CNN. Asked if she would visit the White House, Vonn flatly said "Nope".

Olympic gold medallist and two-time world champion skier Lindsey Vonn has taken aim at Donald Trump as she prepares to represent the United States at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Asked if she'd go and meet Trump, she replied: 'Absolutely not. No.

The alpine skier, who long dominated her sport outside of the marquee quadrennial event, boasts just two Olympic medals, winning a gold in the downhill and a bronze in the Super-G at the 2010 Vancouver games.

President Trump has not yet rescinded a potential White House invite to Vonn, as he did in September to Steph Curry after the Golden State Warriors basketball star expressed a lack of enthusiasm for such a visit. "I want to represent our country well".

Bowing to popular demand, the restaurant eventually opened its doors, with diners treated to ready meals from budget supermarket Iceland.

"But I have to win to be invited".

This year Trump has been embroiled in a controversy with the NFL and some of the NBA's top players - a spat with significant racial and cultural undertones - after he blasted prominent athletes for kneeling during the national anthem and refusing to come to the White House. No, actually I think every USA team member is invited so no, I won't go.

Vonn is hailed as America's best female ski racer.

Vonn, 33, has competed in the Olympics three times, but she missed the 2014 Winter Games due to a knee injury.

Last year, she broke her arm and sustained nerve damage during a preseason training crash in the U.S., delaying the start of her season until January.
