Tiger Woods' girlfriend is admittedly finding inspiration in another man.
Olympic gold medal-winning skiing champ Lindsey Vonn tells USA Today Sports 36-year-old Sochi games medalist Bode Miller's recent performance is inspiring her in her comeback from knee surgery and hopes of competing in the 2018 winter games in South Korea.
Appearing on a segment of the Today show, where she is serving as an analyst for the Sochi Games, Vonn talked about Miller becoming the oldest alpine skiing medalist in Olympic history and what impact she felt it had on her.
"It gives me a little confidence going into Pyeongchang in four years," she said. "I'll be 33. If Bode can do it. I can do it."
The 29-year-old Vonn is already on record in asserting she plans to return to the slopes despite undergoing two major knee surgeries in a matter of months.
Vonn won her gold medal at the 2010 games and was again considered a leading medal candidate for the USA in Sochi. She and the 38-year-old Woods have now been publicly dating for more than a year and she has often raved about how much the world's top-rated golfer has helped her build confidence and learn to be more patient in her approach to things.
