Lindsey Vonn Skier

 Continuing our week of women in the snow...
Lindsey Vonn was named as Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year for 2010 - the first time a skier has won the award. It probably helped that she won a gold and bronze at the Winter Olympics and just capped her third world title this month. Just a little.

Vonn,26, said in an interview with the Denver Post: "For sure, 2010 was the best year I've ever had. It couldn't have gone any better for me. Even if I just won the Olympic gold medal, that would have made it the best year of my career and the best day of my life, period. Winning the World Cup races and the overall title just topped it off."

And remember Zenyatta from this post? She came 2nd in the AP poll.
