Lindsey Vonn can't be having an easy time being injured.
We bet the pain and discomfort doesn't even bother her… it's gotta be more about the fact that Sochi news is ramping up.
The more we hear about the Winter Olympics and get excited, the more she must think about the fact that she can't compete.
We feel awful that she can't compete because of her knee injury but at least some good came out of it.
She got herself a puppy dog named Leo with a similar leg injury so they could heal up together!
Thankfully, Lindsey is doing fine on her own too! She's not only feeling better after a successful surgery, but she also won't be too far from the games, seeing as how she's helping NBC cover them!!
So not only are things turning around, she's got a cute dog to keep her company! Best part? Turns out, that pup just might be her soulmate!!
"When he was with his previous owner, he fell out of the bed of a truck and was hit by a car and he got six pins in his knee, so I immediately clicked with him. When I saw him and saw that he was limping and had a bad leg, I was like, 'Yup, that's my dog!' We instantly had a connection because of our bad leg. It was meant to be."
That is so super sweet!
Way to turn a negative into a real positive!
If she was healthy, she'd have never met her pup, the love of her life! (Next to Tiger Woods, of course!)
