Lindsey Vonn showed she’s poised and ready for a comeback in an inspiring ad that will air Sunday during the Super Bowl.

In the clip shared on YouTube Thursday, the 33-year-old Olympic gold medalist shows her preparation for the Winter Olympics being held in PyeongChang, South Korea that start next week.

Set to Alicia Keys’ song “This Girl is on Fire,” the description released with the video read, “Lindsey Vonn isn’t backing down. And she’s ready to set the world on fire. See this #SuperBowl Ad this Sunday on NBC #BestOfUS #WinterOlympics.”

Throughout the minute-long ad, we see images of Vonn throughout her life, and it features some of her most dramatic crashes and her triumphs. We also get shots of her in the hospital recovering from surgery, undergoing physical therapy and then in the boxing ring to get back in shape and ready for the Olympics.

In 2014, the world-renowned skier was forced to withdraw from the Olympics in Sochi, Russia because of a knee injury. Then in 2016, she fractured her arm in a crash on the slopes. She documented the injury and her recovery on Instagram.

Vonn told Jimmy Fallon during an interview in November that she’s never stopped training and is ready to go for the gold in February.

“I never stop [training]. I mean, you can’t just wait until the last-minute. I’ve been training since the end of last season, so March of this spring,” the Olympic gold medalist shared. “It’s your country. You’ve got to represent and I wanted to be an Olympian since I was a kid, so that’s why I became a ski racer.”
