Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn Update: Golfer Helping Skier Girlfriend Prepare for 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics
Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have spent plenty of time in the public eye since they opened up about their relationship together, and now the couple has started to talk about what makes them click so well.
Vonn, an Olympic skier, has been spending time rehabbing from an injury she suffered in February and said that her boyfriend has helped her deal with the pressure she has faced in the process. With Woods being the world's most popular golfer throughout the last decade, he has faced his fair share of pressure on and off the golf course.
"He understands pressure and he understands, obviously, competing at an extremely high level," Vonn said to The Detroit Free Press. "It's difficult for me going into big events like the Olympics because there's so much more pressure and media attention, and he gets that every single day. So it's nice to be able to talk to him about it and we can relate to each other's lives so well. So I think that's one of the reasons why we work."
Vonn is preparing for the upcoming Sochi Olympics in Russia and said she is looking forward to competing, especially now that she is healthy.
"The mountain itself is amazing, it's actually beautiful," Vonn said of the Olympics site. "The course suits me very well. We had a race there two years ago as kind of a test run for the Olympics. It went really well. I was third and it's a place I feel very comfortable."
Vonn and Woods recently made headlines with a viral video when Lindsey placed a squirrel on Tiger's back while he was watching golf from his cart.
