Held at the Hollywood hotspot, Beauty & Essex the world champion alpine skier discussed how she persevered through numerous injuries and pushed herself to be stronger than ever for the 2018 Olympics.
The Unlike Any campaign celebrates athletes who have shattered expectations, challenged the status quo and risen above gender comparisons. Lindsey's undeniable strength and dedication to her sport – through debilitating injuries and setbacks – is what makes her truly Unlike Any.
As a leader in the conversation of women in sports, Lindsey is currently making headlines for her fight to race against men. Throughout the event she shared her tumultuous road to get to where she is now and her plans to keep pushing forward.
The first round of content debuted this summer, with each of the films featuring a collaboration with spoken word artists who crafted poems unique to each athlete’s story. The poem in Lindsey’s Unlike Any film was created and performed by Oddisee, a Sudanese-American rapper, producer and spoken word artist, and is a tribute to her strength and unwavering perseverance.
During the event guests munched on delectable bites by the Hollywood hotspot and drinking cocktails titled, 'The Rise,' 'The Fall,' and 'The Comeback.' To fully encapsulate the evening guests were also able to take home screen pressed garments by Under Armour in honor of Lindsey Vonn's campaign.
Lindsey joins a powerful group of Unlike Any women, with the previous five Unlike Any films featuring ABT Principal Ballerina Misty Copeland, Harlem Run Crew founder Alison Désir, world champion sprinter Natasha Hastings, professional stuntwoman Jessie Graff, and Chinese taekwondo champion and actress Zoe Zhang (Lanxin Zhang).
