Lindsey Vonn is on fire in Olympics Super Bowl commercial

Posted on

Alicia Keys may want to rethink her 2012 music video for “Girl on Fire.” Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn’s new Super Bowl commercial manages to tell some of her powerful story, all set to the track, and it’s enough to give anyone with a heart for athletic tales of setbacks and comebacks a few chills.

Vonn famously won gold in the downhill and bronze in the super-G at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010, but she was injured just before heading to Sochi in 2014 and had to announce that she would not be able to compete. Several injuries — including a broken back and torn ligaments — and so much resilience later, she’s ready to compete in her second Olympics. And, well, the “girl is on fire.”

The 60-second “Best of U.S.” athlete film — the third of five (see Mikaela Shiffrin’s here and Nathan Chen’s here) — is set to air on Super Bowl Sunday, but EW is debuting it online here.

Before she heads to Pyeongchang, South Korea, Vonn was shown the ad — which features her at the gym, boxing, spending time with her three dogs, and doing a glam photoshoot — for the first time on the Today show this morning.
