NFL Films & Red Bull Media House Follow Olympian Lindsey Vonn For 2 Years After Horrific Crash; Film Premieres On NBC Sun, Jan 25th.
By Steve Trout, Producer
Lindsey Vonn had a horrific crash at the start of 2013 that severely damaged her knee and put her career in jeopardy. NFL Films, in association with Red Bull Media House, imbedded with her for a year, documenting her comeback. She had her mind set on defending her Gold medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
But, just seven weeks before the Games, she crashed again and once again injured her knee. And we were there.
She had to pull out of the Olympics and watch it on TV like a spectator. And we were there.
Just like that, she faced a second knee surgery and a second grueling comeback. This one-year documentary had turned into a two-year journey.
Tune in to NBC on Sunday January 25 at 3pm EST / 12pm PST for “Lindsey Vonn: The Climb.” For two years, we had unprecedented access with America’s most-decorated skier as she went through the emotional ups and downs of, not one, but two comebacks. You’ll see Lindsey like never before, as she makes her triumphant return to racing.
