HENRIETTA, NY (Aug. 9) - An estimated 4,000 fans lined up Friday for a chance to meet Olympic gold medalist and four-time Audi FIS Alpine World Cup overall champion Lindsey Vonn (Vail, CO) at an autograph signing outside of Rochester, NY. Vonn signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans for two hours at The Ski Company. The store closed late with 200 people still inside and an additional 1,500 people outside. Before departing, Vonn stepped outside to signed autographs and take pictures with everyone out on the sidewalk. She then pushed back her next appointment and came back inside the store to finish signing autographs for every one left inside. Vonn, who has been recoving from a torn ACL and MCL hope to return to on-snow training in early September.
