"You pay a price for throwing yourself down the mountain and I'm going to be paying that price for the rest of my life," said Vonn , who just announced a partnership with the DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation to award $500,000 in scholarships through her own foundation. "But that's part of being an athlete - you sacrifice yourself and your body."
"I think I have plenty to talk about with my injuries, obviously, my entire career and my personal life, my family," Vonn told The Associated Press during a red carpet appearance Monday. "There's a lot that's happened in my life, and I feel like I want to share that and empower other women to be independent and strong and believe in themselves."
