“I’m kind of in the process of accepting the fact that I’m not there,” Vonn told USA Today. “I think it will still be difficult to watch the events I would be a contender in.”

So what is Vonn going to watch you ask?

“I really like figure skating. Gracie Gold is supposed to be really good. I’ve never seen her compete so I’m looking forward to that. Then there’s sports like hockey, that I follow normally, that will be good to see.”
