The timing of Lindsey Vonn's divorce, combined with a few other events, has led to a few rumors that she and Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow were dating. Vonn denied that is the case, saying she is single, and that she is friends with the Tebow family.
"I am single. I’m not with anyone,” Vonn said in response to the rumors. “I’ve heard a lot of rumors and a lot of reports.”
Vonn contributed to the rumors when she went "Tebowing" after winning a race last week. She said that was just a sign of respect for Tim.
“He’s proving them all wrong,” Vonn said of Tebow's critics. “In a way, that’s what I’m trying to do as well — to be able to compete under any circumstance and keep fighting and doing my best every day. Just because I `Tebow,’ doesn’t mean I’m dating him. I said that if I won in Colorado, I would `Tebow’ because I admire what he’s doing."
The Olympics skier watched the Broncos game Sunday from the Tebow family box. She wrote a column for The Denver Post about the experience, and explained her relationship with the family.
Vonn says she met Tim at the ESPY Awards three or four years ago. She says she spent time with him at a golf tournament, and this year at the same awards show. Vonn explains that she invited Tim to ski with her at vail, and that Tim's brother, Robby, invited her to a Broncos game.
She says she knows their whole family now, and describes them as "great people."
We could have told you that nothing was going on between Lindsey and Tim. Everyone already knows that Vonn is already taken by this young man.
