"I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremonies", she added.

"I want to represent our country well", Vonn explained.

She continued, "I want to represent our country well". Get the app and get the game.

The 2010 Olympic and eight-time World Cup downhill champion has been plagued with injuries in recent years, and missed Sochi 2014, but is fit again now after breaking her arm a year ago.

In September, he rescinded an invitation to the White House to Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry after Curry said he didn't want the team to visit following its National Basketball Association championship.

Vonn isn't the only Olympian who wouldn't visit the White House under President Trump. "No, but I have to win to be invited". Nope. But I have to win to be invited so - no, actually I think every US team member is invited.

In an interview with CNN, Vonn was asked what it will be like to compete for the USA when Trump is the president.

Vonn, 33, who is preparing for February's Winter Games in St. Mortiz, Switzerland, also said she would not be participating in a post-Olympic trip to the White House. "So no, I won't go".

In late September, Trump rescinded a White House invitation to the Golden State Warriors after star player Steph Curry said during a press conference he had no interest in visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue following the team's championship. But maybe he hasn't heard about her comments yet. He now covers everything from breaking news and politics to sports and stories that defy categorization.
