American skiing champion Lindsey Vonn has criticised US President Donald Trump. Ahead of Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang this February, Vonn stressed that she was representing her countrymen at the Games and not the president. "Well, I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president," Vonn, 33, who is in St Moritz, Switzerland, told CNN's Alpine Edge.
