Lindsey Vonn posted on Instagram Tuesday, and suggested that her days on the slopes during the Olympics will be over after her current run.

She posted four photos of herself from the games and wrote the caption:

Tomorrow I will push out of the starting gate in what will most likely be my last Olympic Downhill race. I’m trying to enjoy the moment as much as I can and I am thankful to share this race with such amazing teammates. I know everyone expects a lot from me, and I expect even more of myself….however there’s only one thing I can guarantee; I will give everything I have tomorrow. Count on it.

Lindsey Vonn has had an incredible career on the slopes and has made a major name for herself in the entertainment world.

It’s going to be sad to see her finally hang it up. I hope like hell she manages to snag a gold medal because it would be the perfect way to go out. She came into the Olympic world as an American skier that was hopeful to have some kind of major impact.

I think it’s very safe to say that she accomplished that and so much more. So, when she takes the slopes tomorrow local time, I will be cheering hard for her. Nothing would make me happier than seeing her win one for this great country.
