Lindsey Vonn earned a World Cup win on American slopes for the first time on Wednesday, capturing the super-G in her home state of Colorado. She finished the race 0.37 seconds ahead of Fabienne Suter of Switzerland.
Vonn would offer an homage to Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow to celebrate her victory, via NBC Universal Sports:
Before stepping on the top step of the podium at the post-race ceremony, Vonn dropped to a knee with her skis in her hand and struck a prayer pose. She was simply joining the "Tebowing" craze.
Out of respect for Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, though, she asked his brother, who was at the race, if it would be disrespectful.
Vonn was given the green light.
