She's the beautiful face of these successful US ski team a gold medalist and recently became the most decorated US skier.
In World Cup history passing the great.
Bode Miller today Lindsey -- shed some light on how she define success.
And what motivates her thanks for joining us Lindsey Graham to meet you he started he -- the World Cup at sixteen you -- -- when you were two years old.
At what point in there did you know all right this is my calling this is what I'm going to do for the rest of my life.
I've I've always -- -- -- -- since I was little girl but I think.
When I was like nine or 10.
I am -- industry -- and she really inspired me and and it just kind of it got me more focus on what I was doing and I am I had some success of the junior level and like this is and I love doing and it's like let's just see where I was and they kept working hard and and here am nine -- ten.
That's pretty impressive it's Olympic sports are so interesting because.
Pay attention -- these sports for a couple of weeks every four years we talk about the Michael Phelps of the world in yourself and Apollo.
But yet you are professional skier and widely successful you've won -- 33 World Cup -- -- -- Bode Miller.
But so many people put all the stocks in winning a gold -- so how do you judge what's what's more port.
It's a lot different and meanwhile cut is.
You know it's what we do every year and I think that's one thing for me as a little bit frustrating is that.
You know everyone is like -- on her like oh I'm so sad I won't be able to -- -- for four more years away and right now actually we have a tour and you know all the World Cup titles and -- one means so much to me and in honesty -- Sosa's importance unions as the Olympics it's just.
It's different knowledge that over -- World Cup title is something that it takes a year's worth of of -- -- racing to accomplish.
And the Olympics is just one day and so they're both very very typical and their -- respects but.
I mean for me personally since I've been dreaming about the Olympics since -- is so little -- I think for me that was -- the Olympic medalist was the most less emotional less exciting OK to use though.
Would define success.
The successes and only about your athletic achievement I think it's also based on.
Just being -- good role model being that person and hard work I think defiance defines who you are and so for me -- I have given everything to my sport and but I also wanna give back you know I wanna I wanna be -- someone night that little kids can look up to end.
Mean because I remember so that that we -- when I looked up to people -- street so.
And I take my -- very seasonally what.
The folks do do you have any advice for people in terms of guiding their child.
And -- given sport whatever maybe some I think what's important is -- to make sure your kid is having fun.
You know I don't force them -- don't force it and if they're not having fun and it's not worth that but.
And you know everyone every kid I think to -- encouragement.
No lets them and let them do what they wanna do and that I think every kid has a dream of being something in particular and as long as a guy in the right direction and and help the way they need to be in -- anything can thinking as possible who's accomplished are things you think you.
