  • Lindsey Vonn Representing 'People of the United States, Not the President' at Winter Olympics

She continued, "I want to represent our country well".

Ahead of February's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn stressed that she was representing her countrymen at the Games and not the president.

Trump has not yet commented on Vonn's criticism, though he has actively rebuked other athletes since he became president.

Vonn has suffered a catalog of injuries throughout her career. "Absolutely not", she said.

Pyeongchang will be Vonn's first Games since Vancouver 2010, where her downhill triumph turned her into a global star and one of the world's best-paid winter athletes with a net worth, according to Forbes, of about $3 million. Nope. I have to win to be invited so - no, actually I think every United States team member is invited.

Vonn isn't the only Olympian who wouldn't visit the White House under President Trump. "No, I won't go".

Traditionally, members of the United States Olympic team are invited to the White House following the Games in celebration of their accomplishments. "So, no, I won't go".

Rippon, a openly gay athlete and the 2016 USA national champion, said he would refuse Trump's invitation as he feels athletes have a responsibility as role models.

Olympic free skier Gus Kenworthy and figure skaters Ashley Wagner, Nathan Chen and Adam Rippon have also publicly stated that they would not travel to the White House.

A number of athletes have been critical of Trump, including National Basketball Association stars LeBron James and Steph Curry. "But I have to win to be invited".
