Američka skijašica Lindzi Von otkrila je da je dobila veliki broj uvreda na društvenim mrežama zbog kritika koje je uputila na račun predsednika Sjedinjenih Država Donalda Trampa.

33-godišnja Vonova je prošle nedelje u jednom intervjuu rekla da na Zimskim olimpijskim igrama u Pjongčangu u februaru „želi da predstavlja ljude u Sjedinjenim Državama, a ne predsednika“.

Boli kada čitate komentare u kojima piše da žele da slomim vrat ili da me Bog kažnjava jer sam protiv Trampa“, napisala je Vonova na svom profilu na Instagramu.

Vonova je jedna od najuspešnijih skijašica u istoriji Svetskog kupa, sa četiri velika Kristalna globusa, 16 malih i ukupno 77 pobeda. Nijedna žena nema više trijumfa od nje, a rekorder je Ingemar Stenmark sa 86.

Amerikanka je istakla da je u intervjuu za CNN pokušala da naglasi da olimpijci predstavljaju svoju naciju, a ne neku posebnu političku partiju ili individualca.

As I head to France for the next races, I would like to share with you my reflections from the past few days. I've received a tremendous amount of feedback, both positive and negative, about my recent CNN interview. The point that I was trying to articulate is that all Olympic athletes represent their nation as a whole, and are not representatives of their government or any specific political figure or party. None of us work tirelessly for years on end to compete in the Olympics on behalf of Democrats or Republicans. The Olympics are a non-political event, a chance for everyone to put aside their differences and be on the same "team.". That does not mean that Olympic athletes don't have political opinions. As an American, I am extremely proud that our great nation was founded on principals and ideals where citizens can express our opinions openly. It is a privilege that some others around the world don't have. I am proud to be an American, and I want our country to continue to be a symbol of hope, compassion, inclusion and world unity. My travels around the world have recently made clear that this is no longer how people view the United States. You cannot pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV in Europe without noticing how people are questioning our direction. It seems to me that we must lead with understanding and strive for unity in our relationships throughout the world. As for myself, my recent comments opened up my eyes as to how divided we are right now. It is hurtful to read comments where people are hoping I break my neck or that God is punishing me for being "anti-Trump." We need to find a way to put aside our differences and find common ground in communicating. Is it wrong to hope for a better world? All of this is much bigger than skiing and the Olympics. I am going to take the next two months to focus on what I can do and right now that is competing for my country. In doing that, I will be hoping that we Americans can still be that "shining city on a hill."

Tramp, koji često vrlo brzo odgovara na kritike poznatih na svoj račun, još se nije oglasio po pitanju Vonove.

Vonova, koja je osvojila zlato na Igrama u Vankuveru 2010. godine, a četiri godine kasnije nije skijala u Sočiju zbog povrede, istakla je da ljudi van Sjedinjenih Država zbunjeni promenama u njenoj domovini.

Ne možete da pročitate novine ili da gledate televiziju u Evropi, a da ne primetite da se ljudi pitaju u kom pravcu idemo. Čini mi se da moramo da se vodimo razumevanjem i težimo jedinstvu u našim odnosima širom sveta“, naglasila je Vonova i dodala da komentari na njene izjave takođe pokazuju koliko je Amerika podeljena, „Moramo da nađemo način da naše razlike ostavimo po strani i pronađemo zajednički jezik u komunikaciji. Da li je pogrešno što ljudi žele bolji svet? Sve ovo je mnogo veće od skijanja i Olimpijskih igara. U naredna dva meseca ću se fokusirati na ono što mogu da uradim, a u ovom trenutku je to da se takmičim za svoju zemlju. Nadam se da ćemo tako mi, Amerikanci, i dalje biti taj ‚svetleći grad na brdu‘“.
